Have funny clips on social media replaced telling jokes?

This is a very random post of mine, but the other day it occurred to me that I hadn’t heard a joke for a long time.

Now of course in the last few years the surge of technology especially mobile phones has been huge and admittedly fantastic. With phones comes social media and with social media comes funny images and videos.
For me I feel that these have replaced telling jokes. I’ve done it myself, I used to love telling jokes but I haven’t for a long time, I instead say ‘Oh I saw this hilarious video the other day.’ and whip it my phone, go onto Facebook or Twitter and the video; I’ve noticed others do this also.

Not that there’s anything wrong with this, admittedly there is some funny stuff daily on the internet, but don’t you miss those sometimes cheesy, witty and hilarious jokes that stay with you and make you chuckle to yourself throughout the day?
Thinking about it, the videos and images do that too!

It’s just a thought of mine. Let me know what you think.
