Web wit

July 16, 1998|By Dru Sefton

IF YOU have an e-mail account, you may have chuckled over one of these ditties.

Call them Web witticisms if you will because there's really no name for them. They're amusing little electronic tidbits that ricochet all over the Internet as recipients guffaw and e-mail them on to their pals.

Where do they come from? Who knows? Where did the first "knock-knock" joke come from?

So in case you've missed them, or if you're not yet part of the computer revolution, here are some especially wacky ones:

If corn oil comes from corn, where does baby oil come from?

Time is what keeps everything from happening at once.

Give me ambiguity or give me something else.

What was the best thing before sliced bread?

Always remember you're unique, just like everyone else.

Never ask your 3-year-old brother to hold a tomato.
