Earlier this week, we created a contest for you, our glorious readers, to win tickets to Comedy Works by submitting your favorite jokes. The post, which earned more than sixty submissions, resulted in some flat, some bewildering and some pretty hilarious jokes, and we recently announced our final winners. (Some of you could use some time at Comedy Works to fine-tune those funny bones.) In the meantime, continue reading for our fifteen favorite reader-submitted jokes.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
