And now, a joke.
Or, as my friend Irena would say, “a jote.”
It’s funnier, right? Jotes?
The reason that I am going to post this jote, which is very silly and slightly weird — okay, very weird — is that it’s finals week, I’ve got a deadline for the magazine and a deadline for the other magazine and intricately woven narratives are my favorite kinds of posts but I have to eat something for Lord’s sake and who’s gonna finish these captions? But there’s another reason why I want to post this jote: I like the jote. The jote is interesting. So we tell the jote.
Q: Why did the monkey fall out of the tree?
A: Because it was dead.
