A good joke is one that leaves everyone laughing together, not one crying silently inside. Let’s strive to keep our humor inclusive and light-hearted. No matter what, remember that respect for others’ feelings should always remain paramount in any situation.

Use these hilarious comebacks responsibly, and you’ll surely enhance your witty wordplay in conversations!
