  2. something similar happened to me in high school i said we should have a dress down day on fridays(we had uniforms)and my teacher looked at me like i was retarded then this girl said that shit the next day and everybody started acting like she was a genius fucking hero and my teacher said that was a good idea and she would present the idea to the principal i remember thinking that everyone was in on a joke

  3. А кто нибудь может объяснить смысл шутки? А то не совсем понятно.

  4. Key and Peele are also not innocent when it comes to stealing jokes. Chapelle accuses them of stealing his stuff. And I saw a sketch where they stole one of Mitchell and Webbs bits.

  5. This is basically the fishdicks episode of South park , so literally someone is a joke thief, fucking meta..

  6. lmao this happens all the time with me, its a pretty good way to tell that a person isnt trustworthy when they pull this

  7. Dam this actually happen to me once just not in school but nobody would belive me but im glad it made it on yo mama jokes

  8. "Et tu nerdy girl"

    Reference to "Et tu brute" said by Caesar when he found out Brutus, his friend, stabbed him and orchestrated his death.

    I think.

  9. I guess this was me and you back in the days, I'd say something funny and then you'd wait until we're in a crowd and recycle my jokes

  10. Lol, I'm literally Joe.
    Used to be so pissed of by this.
    One other example was a friend pranked me by touching a cold steel on my lower arm, and since we're in lab doing some electrical shit, the sudden cold made me think that I got electrocuted. I yelped and my friends laughed.

    He then encourage me to do the same thing to my other friend for a laugh. He yelped and had the same reaction, then I got a hard slap on my cheek. He didn't laugh. My friends laugh tho.
    But that's the point that I know in life, people aren't equal. Some were just more liked than others (me).
    And I accepted that.

  11. I said this in class while my teacher was talking about it, and the only reason people laughed is because they see this video😂😂😂

  12. I remember literally everyone thinking they were geniuses when they came up with this joke in middle school. Then they realized everyone else had the same idea.

  13. It's not that the content is extremely funny in an of itself. It's that these two completely embody their characters mannerisms and peculiarities. It is literal comedic genius. They transcend the cliche.

  14. Kid did this to me in middle school. We toured a trash processing plant (idk why) and I said to my "friend" "well that was a waste of time" and he repeated the line to the whole class and everyone laughed

  15. ngl in high school i heard a kid say a joke under his breath and said it louder to a pretty good reaction. I'm sorry to whoever that was…

  16. Joe: steals joke

    in next life

    Joe gets fired for protecting bagels

    Troy: Bagels are for sales associates, BITCH!
