My name is Chad. Go ahead, say something incredibly stupid about Florida and the election. I know you want to. People can’t seem to hold back. All my life I’ve made fun of everything and everybody and finally it has come back to me. Which is fine. I’m a big boy, I can take it. I love “snaps” and “playing the dozens.” (Of course, I also love making a big deal out of using “quotey fingers” while pausing for effect and making a really stupid face… but I digress.)
Jokes at my expense don’t bother me – hell, they’re the bread-n-butter of my personality. What does bother me are lame jokes. Well crafted, fine-tuned, perfectly honed comedy is solid gold. Going up to someone named Chad and asking, “Hey, Chad… how’s it HANGING?” is a sure sign that you are humor-impaired. In fact, I’ll go out on a limb here.. if that’s the best you’ve got – if that’s the stinging zinger you let loose.. I’d venture to guess that you are comedy handicapped.
If that’s the case, next time you think of something you feel is funny, do us all a favor.. keep it to yourself. No, on second thought get up in front of everybody and say it as loud as you can. Then when it’s my turn I’ll seem like a comedy genius.
You’ve probably been sent to this page by ME because this is my generic response to all stupid “chad” jokes:
The Election 2000 hijinks down in Florida brought the word “chad” onto the lips of people around the world. Some wondered who this Chad guy is and why he’s causing so much trouble.. Others have spent their time contacting every person named Chad they ever met and asking them “how’s it hanging… CHAD?” Very clever (us Chads are highly amused… the rest of you are all collectively comedic geniuses!).
There also seems to be widespread confusion concerning the use of the word “chad.” This is intended to educate you non-chad-experts (and some of you dumber Chads out there as well) as to the proper use of the variations of the name.
