If this is your first time to my site, here is a quick orientation to what I am doing.
I am taking an online class (technically a MOOC or Massively Online Open Class) called Digital Storytelling 106 (DS 10). Part of the class is something called The Daily Create. Every day a new creative challenge is posted, and you have 24 hours to create to that challenge and post it on your blog.
Okay! The challenge for Jan. 7, 2012 was “Record a video of yourself telling a joke. Don’t read it- tell it.”
I don’t know many jokes–I don’t seem to have the mind for them–but as I was driving into the parking lot at Lane CC yesterday, I suddenly remembered one. I parked, propped the iPad2 on the steering wheel and just shot a video of me telling the story. It ain’t pretty but it cracks me up.
NOTE: This joke is just slightly off color!
