Hey, I don't have a good sense of humor, I have an evil sense of humor- I once did an entire standup set about Jack Kevorkian that didn't get a single laugh from the audience. I think I lost them when I pointed out that Kevorkian was unique in that fifty years after WWII, he gassed a jewish woman... and got away with it.
