Jokes are typically for the entertainment of people, and the desired purpose is to make people laugh. Moreover, jokes themselves are the art of life because they originate from life; at the same time, they reflect life. Without life experiences, the jokes themselves do not make any sense. Through the jokes, we better understand what common life is and how people view their current lives. Jokes serves as both “window and mirror” for people to discover and reflect what have happened.
