Is being funny something you do? It's not easy being a comic, and writing funny can be even more challenging.

Here's a chance to see what you're made of.

And here are a few quips to close this off so I can post it and get the word out.

A ham sandwich walks into a bar and orders a beer. 

The bartender says, "Sorry, we don't serve food here."

2. What do you call an alligator detective?

An investi-gator.

And finally, for a finale:

A fly feels a bug on its back and asks, “Hey, bug on my back, are you a mite?” 

 “I mite be,” giggles the mite. 

 “That’s the worst pun I’ve ever heard,” the fly groans. 

 “What do you expect?” asks the mite. “I came up with it on the fly.”
