An anti-joke is one that makes you laugh by defying the final expectation of a joke. That is, it will at least attempt to be amusing. It’s a type of meta-comedy that (ideally) makes you laugh by providing something you never expected to see.

It entails the joke teller presenting something that is neither funny nor lacks intrinsic significance. The practice is based on the audience’s expectation of something amusing, and when this does not occur, the irony itself is amusing. The punchline is the lack of a punchline. Anti-humor is also the foundation of many forms of pranks and hoaxes.

The first person exclaims, “I want a billion pounds!” POOF, he’s clutching a printout indicating that his account balance has increased to 1,000,000,003.50. The second man pauses for a moment before declaring, “I want to be the richest man alive.” POOF, he’s clutching paperwork proving his net worth has surpassed $100 billion. The third man thinks about his request even longer before saying, “I want my left arm to rotate clockwise for the remainder of my life.” POOF, his arm begins to rotate.
The Genie informs them that it is time for their second wish. “I want to marry the most gorgeous woman on the planet,” says the first guy. A lovely beauty wraps herself around his arm, POOF. “I want to be good-looking and personable so I can have every female I want,” adds the second guy. POOF, his appearance changes, and the first guy’s wife begin flirting with him right away. “I want my right arm to rotate counter-clockwise till I die,” says the third guy. POOF, his arms are now rotating in different directions.
The genie advises them to consider their third desire very carefully. After a while, the first guy declares, “I never want to become sick or injured, I want to be well until I die.” POOF, his complexion improves, his acne clears up, and his knees no longer trouble him. “I never want to get old,” replies the second person. “I’d like to stay 29 forever.” POOF, he immediately appears younger. “My last desire is for my head to nod back and forth,” adds the third guy joyfully. POOF, he’s nodding his head and waving his arms around again. The genie wishes them well, then vanishes, and the men soon part ways.
Many years later, they reconnect and catch up on their lives. “I’ve invested the money and tripled it many times over, so I and my family will be among the richest of the rich pretty much forever,” says the first person. My wife is a freak in the sheets, and I haven’t caught a cold in all these years.” “Well, I created charities globally with a percentage of my fortune, I’m still the richest guy alive and also revered for my good deeds,” the second guy replies with a smile.
