Title What is poorly Said is a Little Funny
Authors Jonas Sjöbergh and Kenji Araki
Abstract We implement several different methods for generating jokes in English. The common theme is to intentionally produce poor utterances by breaking Grice’s maxims of conversation. The generated jokes are evaluated and compared to human made jokes. They are in general quite weak jokes, though there are a few high scoring jokes and many jokes that score higher than the most boring human joke.
