Cracking jokes on puzzles can be a way to add humor and levity to what might otherwise be considered a serious or challenging task. It can also be a way to make learning or solving puzzles more enjoyable and engaging, as well as to make the material more relatable and memorable.
One of the best jokes to play on others is to pretend that you’re trying to solve a crossword puzzle and say aloud “Postman -blank-. Any ideas?” They’ll likely say something like “Postman Pat” to which you reply, “No that doesn’t fit.” Then if they’re not completely thick, they should ask, “How many letters?” That’s when you tell ’em, “A SACKFUL!” Then they’ll leave in disgust.
