At work, I often get accused of telling dad jokes. It's Friday, so instead of talking about Autodesk technology, here's a dad joke that I heard on Netflix's Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee with Jerry Seinfeld.
A dying-of-thirst man is crawling through the desert and comes upon a tie salesman. He cries out, “Water, water.” The tie salesman says that he doesn’t have any water, but would he like to buy a tie? The dying remain cries out “No, just water.” The tie salesman tells him “I don’t have any water, but you can get some at the inn that is 4 miles away.” A day goes by, and the tie salesman encounters the same man crawling from the other direction. His face is on fire. The salesman asks the man, “Didn’t you get any water at the inn?” The dying man replies, “No. They wouldn’t let me in without a tie.”
Laughter is alive in the lab.
