Now, some unstructured and valueless research is called for. First the data collection phase:
Please tell me a joke that could only possibly be funny to those familiar with [insert discipline of choice].
Please be so good as to tell me what you'd have to know for this joke to be funny.
Please tick this box so that others can see how many people have answered thus far.
In a couple of days, I'll do another poll with these jokes and "Did you get it?" ticky boxes.
