Delivering a Punchline


Delivering a Punchline
September 27th 2012: In middle school, 'Helen Keller' jokes became popular for a while. If you're unfamiliar, Helen Keller was a woman who was deaf and blind, and there are a great many jokes that try and play cleverly off of this. As such Helen Keller became a kind of Trump card in Apples to Apples. The jokes started to become a distasteful to me, after I had heard a little bit of the story of Helen Keller, that though she was deaf and blind, she overcame her diabilities to become an influencial author and activist. I encourage you to look up her story, she is far more than a punch line.
