Weird Joke Teller
I’ve had this really weird friend since elementary school.
He’s got this really, really deadpan sense of humor.
But the jokes he makes with this deadpan sense of humor never make any sense whatsoever.
But because he is so serious, and he says these really weird things with such congruence, nobody knows if he’s really being serious, or if he’s just making a joke that nobody gets.
It has a strange effect on group conversations.
People will be talking about random things, whatever, laughing, joking etc., and then he’ll drop in this completely random statement with utter seriousness.
And then like everybody’s brain just freezes, nobody knows how to respond, and it creates such a weird and unexpected silence, nobody wants to be the first to say anything.
I saw this interesting lineup the other night at this comedy club.
The first guy told a whole bunch of jokes that everybody’s heard before.
I mean like, elementary school playground riddles.
Dude, What’s So Funny?
But the way he was telling them, the whole place was laughing hysterically the whole time.
The second guy that got up was interesting, but nothing he said was funny.
He just kept telling these stories that didn’t make any sense, yet at the same time, we had to keep listening to these, hoping that there would some punchline at the very end that would tie everything together.
Once Upon A Time
He told this story about a wizard.
This guy could teach you how to do anything.
He could teach you how to levitate, how to move objects with your mind.
How to mentally time travel into anybody’s brain.
How to astrally project yourself.
How to remote view and remote influence anybody.
A simple thought to think and focus on anybody within eyesight and either make them have an orgasms in their pants to crap their pants.
But in order to learn form this guy, you had to pass through some gauntlet of mental horror.
It was like some barrier to keep out the evil and the unworthy.
You had to sit with this wizard while he looked inside your mind for your deepest fears.
Hold On Tight
And then he would make your deepest fears become real.
And swirl around you, and give you the most vivid and horrific hallucination you could ever imagine.
And within that horrific hallucination, he would covertly deposit the idea of permanence.
Meaning you would not only believe you were surrounded by these worst feared images, but you would truly believe that they would be with you for all eternity.
That you would spend all eternity being tortured by your worst fears.
One Thought To Make Them Vanish
But the moment you accepted, embraced, and appreciated your worst fears, even to the point of accepting an eternity with them, the hallucination would vanish.
And your mind would be suddenly filled with the secrets of everything.
All knowledge, all skills, all information.
The wildest imaginations telepathic abilities would be child’s play compared to what you would really learn.
Of course, most people think they can handle their worst fears.
But it turns out, the things you think are your worst fears are not even close to your actual worst fears.
But on the other side of accepting and embracing your true worst fears, not just for a little bit, but for all eternity, is everything you could possibly want.
He talked for about an hour and a half.
And when he got down on off the stage, everybody was looking around like nobody knew what had just happened.
Even the MC, who had been waiting for him to finish so he could introduce the next guy, was in a pure daze of amnesia.
What Just Happened
So, we just kind of sat there, quietly for a few minutes, and started to stagger outside.
I went up and approached him after the show and asked him what the deal was.
Turns out he is working off a grant, to study the linguistic and non-verbal components of humor.
That night he was experimenting with delivery energy, while holding the jokes constant.
That’s why his jokes were all riddles that he said required we all have heard these before.
He showed me this whole matrix he’s been working on.
His theory is that humor is not really about the words, much more about the delivery.
It’s All An Illusion
Even deeper, he says most communication, even technical and mathematical communication, is not about the words.
His graduate thesis is that all communication is telepathic.
And we aren’t really using words.
Words are just a part of our hallucination about the world around us.
One of many hallucinations about the world around us.
The funniest thing is this guy always had gorgeous girls around him.
Even in high school, he’d walk down the hallway with two of the hottest girls in school holding his hands at the same time.
And as an adult, he’s always surrounded by hot ladies.
If you saw him, didn’t know him and didn’t talk to him, you’d think he was an ultra rich porn producer or something.
But if you talked to him, this would make even less sense.
Cult Leader Variation
Because he talks to these girls like he talks to everything else.
Normal words and sentences and phrases interspersed with completely deadpan but nonsensical words and phrases and ideas.
So there must be something to how incredibly attractive and seductive the ladies find this guy.
Something that has nothing to do with the words.
Mind Persuasion has plenty of books and courses to teach you how to speak hypnotically and persuasively.
