What is your favorite joke?

A new employee joined a company which had many long time employees. One day the new employee was at lunch and heard one of the old timers shout out, "25.!" and the room of diners roared in laughter. A few minutes later, another employee yelled out, "6!" and again, laughter filled the room. The new employee did not get it, so asked one of the veteran employees what was so funny. The employee remarked that we've been together so long and heard these jokes so many times that we just numbered them to save time. The newbie saw an opportunity to fit in, so he exclaimed, "47!" there was no response. Thinking that maybe they didn't hear he him, he loudly said' "47, again." There was still no response. he tried it a third and got the same results. Finally, very frustrated and confused, he asked the veteran why he got no response when he shouted out a number. The long timer remarked, "Some people just don't know how to

tell a joke."
