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.

The Lane CC parking lot on the first day of school Jan. 9, 2012. I'm just sittin' here telling jokes to the world, crazy woman talking to her orange i-Guy...

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!

  • Cousin Sandy, you come by your lack of joke telling abilities naturally as I remember aunt Mickey mangling a few. Still, you did a good job one that one.
    Joke telling is essentially telling a very short story, but always with an unexpected twist ala O. Henry.

    • I am excited to have caught the eye…or at least the laughter! of the great Tim Owens.Thanks for stopping by my Mind on Fire blog, and I hope to give you more DS 106 reasons to do so again over the this next term. We jam econo!
