The Illegal Liberation Web Page for the Preservation of Some Very Funny Jokes
The first days of October 1998 saw what may have been the funniest jokes ever posted to the usenet newsgroup alt.fan.frank-zappa. They were devised by AJ Wilkes and have been preserved here without his knowledge or permission, because they're too funny not to. It all started when artwork maestro Cal Schenkel dug up these pictures of Ricky Lancelotti (the singer without a photo on the Over-Nite Sensation album):
When he saw these, JWB exclaimed:
That was all AJ Wilkes needed. He replied (with links to the pictures instead of the actual pictures, as shown here):
Replying to his own message, he added:
He continued, in another reply:
And another, this time with links to HTML pages rather than just pictures (these two pictures and texts are straight from the muppets.com web site):
Needless to say, this was very popular. People started posting thank-you messages to AJ. All he did was reply to one of them:
Ladies and gentlemen, that's it. Those are the original jokes from early October 1998. Don't try to make your own jokes like these; no one will ever beat AJ, and it's likely that not even he could surpass the above. All pictures and texts on this page were reproduced without permission. Here's hoping you'll like them!
