This is my speech on why we should think about our jokes. I read my speech to Harry, Latham and Ana.
Why we should think about our jokes?
Jokes can be a excellent source of fun, but do you know what effect it can have on a person? Everyone has probably made a few jokes in their life, some of them harmful and some of them funny. Some people, if they don’t like each other, use jokes to mock people and make fun of them. That is not the right thing to do.
Lot’s of people dislike jokes because they have been the target of many of them. People who make jokes usually don’t know what effect will happen. Did you know that 72% of people who think that a joke is wrong, still laugh? That is a very bad percentage, no one should laugh if a joke is wrong.
Some of the most harmful jokes are about someone’s mother or family. If you make a joke about someone and they don’t like it, it might start a argument which will probably lead to people getting physical or having a fight. This can lead to a long time of harmful jokes, remarks and violence.
Friendships can be ended suddenly over a single joke, so be careful what you say when you are out and about. Lot’s of people don’t like jokes about them but they just either don’t reply to the jokes or when they do, they reply in a bad way, especially if you are persistent.
