Jon Rineman has assembled an exhaustive list of his Best 50 Jokes of 2008, covering politics, entertainment, sports, and a few other catagories. Rineman, who shares my longstanding frustration about the treatment of Scatman Crothers in The Shining, tees off on the usual suspects(Sarah Palin, Manny Ramirez) like a man obsessed with rimshots. He even includes his top ten worst jokes. Brave move, Mr. Rineman.
Take a look here:
