when one of them collapses. He doesn’t seem to be breathing
and his eyes are glazed. The other guy whips
out his phone and calls emergency service. He gasps as he says, “My friend is dead! “He’s dead! What can I do?” The operator says, “Hey, calm down. “I can help. “First, let’s just make
sure he’s actually dead.” Then there’s a silence and all of a sudden a gunshot’s heard. And then the guy gets back on the phone. He says, “Okay, what now?” Nothing?
– [Woman] No. – Come on, you know that’s good. You know it’s good, there’s a smile. Oh, oh. Almost. (sad music) Did you not hear the joke? – I heard it. – [Host] I’m gonna read it one more time, ’cause I just don’t think you guys get really good humor, ’cause

  1. Part of a joke is how you tell it. This kind of a joke is supposed to be told in a serious tone. And that makes it YOUR problem of bad joke telling, and not their lack of humor.

  2. That old dude must of been searching for the most PC, sterilized, "safe" joke…

    Then again, this youtuber killed the joke before the 911 Operator even got on the phone!

  3. I cant actually blive people dont get it lol and also u gatta say it in a funny way like being comedian is a talent u r face has that talend but u need to work on u r speech too i mean the timing dont read it too fast to people they wont get it

  4. There's a thing called "Delivery". Which plays a crucial part in making a joke funny. And buddy, you ain't got it…

  5. That not funny joke is only funny to "desperate for a laugh" people Examples of desperate for a laugh people are the audience of Colbert. Kimmel, and the other two loser nightime comic guys I forgot the names of……DESPERATE FOR A LAUGH MUCH??? Sheeeeeesh !!!!

  6. I understood the joke though it doesn't sound like a joke for me. If you think that I am lying then I am telling you I DIDN'T LAUGH AT ALL. AND IT IS THE TRUTH.
