A possible explanation ...

beermat was worried about me yesterday. I think I know now what caused it.

Here's a possible explanation of my condition, something which mhw found in David Crystal's Language Play:

From Dorland's Illustrated Medical Dictionary:
witzelsucht (vit'sel-zoocht) [Ger.]
"A mental condition characteristic of frontal lobe lesions and marked by the making of poor jokes and puns and the telling of pointless stories, at which the patient himself is intensely amused."
