While talking about jokes that “punch down” (31:51) we came up with the following challenge: Try to make a joke about a baby with a cleft palate.
Here’s the best I can do and it took a day.
I really like the movie Batman but I was watching the new one last night and I realized Bane is way more of a badass than Batman. I mean, he escaped from a prison hole by jumping out of it. I was like, I want a Bane. I’m too old and weak to be Bane but I could maybe make one. Anyway, it took a lot of work but I managed to find one. That’s right, I adopted a baby with a cleft palate and I’m raising it in the basement with nothing to eat. I throw some throat lozenges down there sometimes…
See? It’s really hard.
