Anti jokes are jokes where the listener is set up to expect a funny punchline, but then the joke doesn’t deliver it. So they shouldn’t be funny, right? Wrong!!!
They are just as amusing as normal funny jokes, of course, otherwise we wouldn’t be bringing them to you! It’s actually the irony of the anticipated punchline not being delivered that makes anti jokes humorous.
