It seems that like many of the joke-tellers I've enjoyed listening to at COMICWONDER.com, I'm not ashamed of stealing or reworking a joke. For many years I actually created many hundreds of jokes that I used in a high school classroom (as the teacher). After retiring I hoped to publish those stupid jokes... after you hear some of them you'll understand why they haven't been in print.
Not sure it's easy to quantify: I do prefer jokes that are cute and clever as opposed to those that are crude.
