Jokes come in all shapes and sizes. There are intellectual jokes. There are dad jokes. And, if you're into them, there are cat jokes. But above all, there are silly jokes. You know the ones: A friend asks you a nonsensical question (perhaps, "Why did the man fall in the well?"). You say, "I don't know." And they hit you with the punchline ("Because he didn't see that well," in this case). And then you both laugh hysterically. Because let's face it, no matter how bad the joke was, it was also funny. And you know what? It definitely brightened your day. Herein, we've rounded up the 50 funniest jokes that are so silly they're practically sunshine.
