Dungeon Humor

Submitted by Maynard S. Clark

This is the story of the prisoners in the dungeon, none with any hope of ever escaping. Then a new enemy of the realm was thrown into the dungeon with them, but in a previously-vacant cell.

The newcomer hears numbers being called out.

17
Guffaw! Guffaw! Guffaw! Guffaw! Guffaw! Guffaw! Guffaw! Guffaw!

47
Guffaw! Guffaw! Guffaw! Guffaw! Guffaw! Guffaw! Guffaw!

85
Guffaw! Guffaw! Guffaw! Guffaw! Guffaw!

19
Guffaw! Guffaw! Guffaw! Guffaw! Guffaw! Guffaw! Guffaw! Guffaw! Guffaw! Guffaw! Guffaw!

There was uproarious and spontaneous laughter after each of the numbers; some longer, some shorter, but all numbers followed by gales of laughter.

So the new prisoner yelled out to the prisoner in the distant cell nearest him.

What's happening here?

Well, we're all hopelessly imprisoned and, like therapy based on Mazlow's search for meaning - you may have heard about how Holocaust survivors kept themselves both sane and alive by believing, we've shared aloud the funny stories we remembered.

But at some point, our memories became exhausted when we've told every funny story we know; then we tell the stories again. But we've been in this condition SO long that we tire of telling the stories, so we assign each story a number and just yell the numbers of our favorite jokes, funny stories, and witticisms.

We laugh just like normal people - at normal jokes, and it takes less time; telling those tales is really exhausting, y'know.

Then another number was yelled into the shared darkness. #37

Total silence.

"What's happening?" the newbie asked. The number was yelled out, but nobody laughed.

"Some folks just don't know how to tell a story."
