How many designers does it take to change a light bulb?
Humour is a strange beast. We all find different jokes or situations, laugh-out-loud funny or tumble weed quiet. But laughter is so good for us both physically and mentally. It can help protect us from stress, diminish pain, boost mood and strengthen our immune system.
Your body & mind can be brought into balance with a good old belly laugh.
Talking of calories; one of my favourite one-liners is Rob Auton’s joke about a chocolate bar:
“I heard a rumour that Cadbury is bringing out an oriental chocolate bar.
Could be a Chinese Wispa.”
See you feel better already, don’t you? Well, it’s subjective and you can’t please everyone all of the time, but it did make you smile, right?
Designing can be really fun and we can often find ourselves in very funny situations. Designers do need a healthy, and very possibly slightly twisted sense of humour as it can be a valuable tool for conceptualising and just as importantly I don’t think you will survive within the industry for very long without one.
In honour of National Smile Day, I’ve scoured the internet, (actually a twenty minute search on Google) and found in my humble opinion the best graphic designer jokes. Admittedly they are a little heavy on the type side of our profession and possibly a little on laughs. But here’s my top five graphic design jokes.
1) Two fonts walk into a bar, the bartender says “we don’t serve your type here.” So they called the serif.
They don’t get any better than that. I’d stop reading now if you didn’t like that!
2) What type of dash does Slim Shady use most often?
En and Em
(I did warn you!)
3) What did Helvetica say to Arial?
You’re such a copy cat.
4) Knock Knock, Who’s there?
Laura, Laura who? Laura Mipsum
5) What did the 0 say to the 8?
In answer to the question I proposed at the start of this blog.
How many graphic designers does it take to change a lightbulb?
Answer: Does it have to be a lightbulb?
You may have to be a designer to love that one!
Please share any good (clean!) jokes
