"Ever since the time of dinosaurs, man has told jokes. Humor has been evolving for literally millions of years. And many historians now believe that the current era may very well be the funniest time in the history of history. We’ve moved from an era of knock-knock jokes to a more sophisticated and mature form of comedy that represents the culmination of man’s struggle to evolve: The Deez Nuts Joke."

Parts 2, 3, 4 and 5.

I laughed out loud at Claratin D - Claratin Deeeez Nuts!

Because it's so dumb that it left the funny zone and came back around the other side.

Deez Nuts reminds of Truck Nutz and I hates me some Truck Nutz therefore I cannot even chuckle at a Deez Nuts "joke"

7. You ask “Do you dance to Oldies?” If so, you reply “You dance to h’old deez nuts!”

Originality Factor 7: If you bust this out as pickup line at the dance club, at least you’ll know they haven’t heard it before.

All fixed, fast-frozen relations, with their train of ancient and venerable prejudices and opinions, are swept away, all new-formed ones become antiquated before they can ossify. All that is solid melts into air, all that is holy is profaned, and man is at last compelled to face, with sober senses, DEEEEZ NUTS

I appreciate the work put into these. For example:
6. Ask your scholarly friend, “Do you prescribe to the theories of Dr. Rubdy?” If they have read the paper “Sensitizing Learners Towards a More Productive Classroom Participation: an 'Exploratory' Approach” by Rani Rubdy of the National University of Singapore, they are likely to respond with a resounding yes. Then it is your turn to shout “Rub Deeeeez Nuts!!!” If they ask who Dr. Rubdy is, you say “Rub Deeeez Nuts!” then grab your crotch, and then explain that Dr. Rubdy wrote a very important paper on class participation.
I always value the change to intellectually stimulate my friends, especially if it means they might stimulate DEEEEZ NUTS!

When I was 16, I did this weekend-long church thing about getting closer to Jesus, and the only thing I really remember about it was this kid named Whit who was there, who was actually Jewish and didn't know anyone else there (most of us were in the same youth group together) and so, in retrospect, I have no idea why he was there at all, but we got along great, and at one point he was trying to explain the classic "CDs" joke to me, which I have never in my life seen in the wild, despite my adoration of all things humorous and juvenile.

I think about this joke ALL THE TIME, but have never actually used it, for fear of then having to explain why I'm grabbing my crotch and shouting and grinning like a drunken monkey. But I'm glad this site is here. And the "Felty's" one is amazing.

We managed to milk about a week's worth of comedy out of the fact that there would only be nuts to eat...

1) Damn, klang, you beat me to it.

2) klang neglects to tell y'all that his brother's nickname is Dee, thus making the possesive "Dee's Nuts" a more personal family joke.

3) I don't even need to acknowledge the question. Anyone mentioning cassettes, CDs, or compact disks in my presence probably wonders why I am reduced to fits of laughter, but, oh well...the question "would I?" has a similar effect.
