Worth some credit
Life Cheat Code: Retell the joke yourself to the rest of the table and take credit for the laughs.
Lpt: repeat good comments found in other subs as lpt thread
If someone at your table tells a good joke, and only you hear it, wait for 10 seconds and then tell it like you made it up. Quick way to make new friends. Obviously not the guy whose joke you stole.
IF YOU DO A REPOST. You should tell everyone it’s a repost?
You took this from a post on r/askreddit you sly dog
Literally just finished a project with a guy who told BAD jokes, and when no one laughed, he would ask, "Did you guys hear me?"
Wow. You actually did this. I mean I know people are douchy sometimes, but you actually took someone else’s line about NOT stealing credit and turned it into a way to steal credit.
Meta karma whoring.
Why aren't you already friends if they're at your table?
