Philosophical Multicore

Sometimes controversial, sometimes fallacious, sometimes thought-provoking, and always fun.

Jokes are funnier when you don’t get them.

Posted by Michael Dickens on September 27, 2009

A while ago I heard the joke, “My karma ran over my dogma.” At the time I did not know what “dogma” meant. I thought it was a made-up word. But I still thought that the joke was pretty funny. When I learned that dogma is actually a word, it became less funny. It’s more like “My karma ran over my bikema.” “Bikema” is just a made-up word. See? It’s funnier that way!

    Very good joke though, I think I’ll try to work it into a conversation with my wife. We speak in puns.

    I just told my wife and she laughed. “My karma ran over my dogma.” She knows the meaning of both karma and dogma, but still finds it funny. Thanks for the laugh.
