I've just had a quick look and the jokes I saw were probably the least funny I've ever seen.

I suddenly have heightened respect for the jokers on BCG.

Is this another chance to give your jokes away for free?

Isn't that what Twitter's for?

You do have to look around for the better jokes.

True, but taking other people's set ups and thinking of funny replies does get the funny muscle working.

Hey, Mike from Howler here.

Thanks for posting Will.

I see Howler as a comedy playground, sure it's not all going to be great content but there is a ton of jokes, thousands and thousands of brilliant and original material. I have zero budget and yes it falls down in many places which is high on my todo list. The latest feed is a dangerous catch all place to visit, the popular page is far safer and I aim to build a home page that showcases the best content and the funniest users.

The hook is the creativity, not just the content.

Please sit tight and know that I'm aware of all the challenges and problems we have, plus hopefully we will see you join in soon, content will get better if more funny people join in.

In terms of giving away your jokes, nah, they're yours. The general feedback is that our users often write material that they would of never thought about on their own, often going forward and using the material in their standup. I call that a success if nothing else.

Hurrah! x
