Literal Joke debate
Debate Rounds (3)
Try to find the funniest joke you can.
*** NO REALLY BAD PUNS PLEASE!!!
Really bad puns are not funny.
First round acceptance and intro
Second round joke (no punchline yet!)
Third round punchline
If your joke doesn't have a punchline, forfeit or post something random in the last round. I don't care.
Either way, good luck!
Rules say I need an intro for the first round?
Intro in a haiku:
Bad puns are the best
Sometimes haikus don't make sense
Thank you, best of luck <3
Harry is walking on a downtown street one day and he happens to see his old high school friend, James, a little ways up ahead.
"Harry, Harry... Hey, how are you buddy!?" James waves to greet his old friend.
"Not so good," shrugs Harry.
"Oh really? Why, what happened?" James queries.
"Well," Harry says, "I just went bankrupt and I've still got to feed my family. I don't know what I'm going to do."
"HA! Could have been worse!" James replies with a knee-slap "Could, have, been, worse."
A month or so later, Harry again encounters James, at a restaurant.
"And how are things now?" he asks.
"Terrible!" says Harry. "Our house burned down last night."
"Oh, HEHEHE!" James laughs and his friend scowls at him "Could have been *snort* HeHuck! It... It could have been worse!" Harry frowns and awkwardly and then walks away.
Another month later, Harry is at a library where he sees James a third time, from across the room.
Harry begins to turn around and act like he hadn't seen his annoying friend, but James spots him, gets up and yells,
"Oh me, oh my, is that familiar face I see!?" With a big dumb grin "Well, how goes it ol' pal!?"
"Oh shut up!" says Harry. "I hate you, you know that!? It's just one tragedy after another James! Now my wife has left me!"
"SHHHHH WE'RE IN A LIBRARY!" yells James!
He calmly walks up to Harry and leans in toward his cheek. Harry could feel Jame's pungent breath on his ear,
"It *snicker... could have been worssssssssssse."
Harry grabs James by the shoulders and shakes him vigorously!
"Get off of me, I can taste how bad you smell!!" He yells "I’m jealous of all the people that haven't met you! Every single time you say the same thing--'could have been worse. Could have been worse.'
IT'S NOT FUNNY! What the heck is it supposed to even mean!? Could have been worse, my butt! James, tell me --How could it have been any worse, huh!?... How!!?"
So, the man died and his spirit went up to Heaven. He goes up to God and asks, "why didn't you save me?"
God says, "I sent you a guy in a boat and a helicopter trying to save you. What more could you ask?"
NikolaGustav forfeited this round.

Reasons for voting decision: Well, S&G and Sources are irrelevant here. Pro forfeited round 3, so conduct to Con, and this was the most crucial round, because it was to be for the punchline of Pro's joke. Con's joke, though really bad, is the only one with a punchline, thus the only completed joke, so arguments to Con...I really wish Pro would have finished here, because his joke was set up better, but Con wins by default.
