Desert Joke Development

How our team of comedy writers create the very funny little jokes and hilarious puns you see on these posts.

Take a famous quote;I think — therefore I am.~ Rene Descartes

Make it sound stupid;I do not think — therefore I am not.

Use it.

Here is the illustration of this principle:

One evening Rene Descartes went to relax at a local tavern. The tender approached and said, “Ah, good evening Monsieur Descartes! Shall I serve you the usual drink?”. Descartes replied, “I think not.”, and promptly vanished.

Now we take the raw joke and convert it for Mojave Desert usage;

It was high noon and hot and dry in Splinkerton City. The street was empty with the exception of a half dozen of so horses hitched in front of the old Whiskey A Go-go saloon. Peg-leg rode up and dropped off his horse landing on his one good leg.

“Frum-bump”

He crossed the wooden walkway.

“Step, thunk. Step, thunk.”

Slowly swinging the saloon doors open and stepping in.

“Rrrrreeeeee-eeeeee, thunk, step, thunk, step, thunk, step”

The swinging doors swing to a stop.

“Reeeeka-reeeka-reeka-reka-re … “

“Ah, good evening Monsieur Descartes! Shall I serve you the usual drink?”

Peg-leg Descartes replied, “I think not.”, and promptly vanished.
