"Stand with feet hip-distance apart, knees slightly bent. Cast off all the insecurities you have developed over a lifetime of feeling like you've never really fit in. Affect a funny foreign accent (optional). Speak quickly and at full volume, pausing arbitrarily. When the joke is done, repeat the phrase 'Get it?' until everyone laughs. If someone doesn't laugh, give a detailed explanation in which you clearly point out the funny aspects of the joke. Harbor resentments no matter what."
