Many people like to tell jokes which target 'other people' such as people of other religions, other nations, other linguistic groups, members of other political parties and most important: other gender! Telling such type of jokes shows a hate and jealousy about others, and also the ego of the joke teller.

Do not laugh while telling a joke. Instead, you should tell jokes seriously. Laugh only after the listeners start to laugh. You will enjoy this method of telling jokes..

You should not tell lot of jokes. Limit yourself to one or two jokes. Telling many jokes may establish your identity as a 'Joker'.
