Two drums and a cymbal fall off a cliff
Two drums and a cymbal fall off a cliff... Da-Dum Tish
This is a meta-joke. This joke makes fun of jokes that end with the jokester making the noise of two drum beats and then a cymbal (which is sometimes called a rim-shot). Jokes that end in that manner often have a weak punchline, and this joke doesn't have a traditional punchline at all.
I suppose that if two drums and a cymbal really fell off a cliff in the correct manner they could make that noise, however this joke is not really that funny.
This is a hilourious joke to use at the end of someone else's bad joke.ReplyDelete
I agree to that, but then the humor is derived from the fact that the jokester is making fun of the person that told the original joke - it is like saying "your joke was so bad that no-one even understood that it was actually a joke, so I am going to point that fact out to everyone"Delete
Tom Scott & Matt Grey tried this, and put the result up on YouTube (way back in 2009). It did indeed sound like a rimshot.Delete
