Welcome to Jokesplanation, a new Kinja that periodically selects a joke told in Kinja tech team internal chats and then explains why it is funny.
The reason for the founding of this Kinja is twofold:
- To explain jokes
- To share the wit and wisdom of the Kinja tech team with the larger world. Recently the Gawker Media editorial team started to share more of their internal chats on Kinja. The desire—far from simple narcissism—was to give the public a window into the day-to-day wit of Gawker editors, and to more efficiently generate content. This Kinja follows the same premise, but is even better because the members of the Gawker tech team are much smarter and tell better jokes (jokes so good that they often require explanation).
