Last night I learned what a Rhetorical Joke is.
Did you know what a Rhetorical Joke is? Huh? Didya?
I didn’t think so. Let me enlighten you.
A Rhetorical Joke is one where the joke teller doesn’t expect you to laugh. So says my ten year old son.
He made some strange joke at the dinner table about $100 living on the same street as $20. I looked at my husband and asked if I was supposed to have a response to that.
Daryl then informed me that it was a rhetorical joke and no response was expected.
Now ya know. And you’re the better for knowing… right?
