A Lady Always Laughs At A Gentleman’s Jokes & Vice Versa Even If The Jokes Are Not Funny: Where Is Your Chivalry? - by Alfred

   It is indeed rude & quite unkind not to laugh at someone’s jokes.
   It is sad that many people don’t know this, much less observe it.

   If you cannot find it within yourself to laugh or force a fake laugh out of courtesy, you should at least smile after the joke is told to let your companion know you appreciate his effort and his time.
   It is quite evil to do otherwise. In fact, one might even call it down right evil to not at least express the slightest appreciation for someone who has taken it upon himself or herself to make you laugh, no matter what the motive might be.

   It is like somebody giving you a gift and you failing to say Thank You. It doesn’t matter if you like the gift or not, as a Lady or Gentleman; you must say Thank You. Even if you plan to throw the gift away or give it to a beggar in the next ten minutes. You must still say Thank You as you receive the gift.
   In the same way, you must thank anyone you cracks a joke for your benefit (even if it is not for your benefit alone).
   Don’t worry, fear not. When you only smile, the person telling the jokes would understand that you don’t find the jokes amusing but would be glad & appreciative that you at least smiled and they wouldn’t feel too bad. They would get the message that it is not in their best interest to tell you more jokes as you are not particularly inclined to like their brand of jokes or particular type of sense of humor.

   Sending the “I’ll Prefer The Jokes Stop” message across politely with a kind smile is sure to work, but if it doesn’t and your companion persists on telling more jokes; stop smiling after the second joke and politely try to change the subject to something else.

   If after repeated tries of changing the subject (or successfully changing the subject) and still more jokes follow. Excuse yourself and leave if you are in a group and you’re not the sole recipient of the jokes. However, if you are the sole recipient of the joke or you are personally intimately close with over 85% of the members of the group; then be direct and tell your companion who is full of jokes that it’s surprising to you that you have found that you personally don’t get his brand of jokes but you appreciate them all the same. Tell him or her that his or her taste in jokes runs at cross purposes with yours, but thankfully other people in the group understand it.

   Never say anything that points at saying your companion’s jokes are bad or not funny, but rather point the finger at you as just not having the type of sense of humor that would appreciate them and has a taste for a different brand of jokes.
   That should definitely send the message home. However, if it doesn’t seem to do so and your companion persists, then your companion is EVIL, wicked, inconsiderate and not worthy to be the friend of anyone. Especially you.
   End such an association or friendship. If you can’t find it in yourself to do it directly, excuse yourself right there and then, & leave.

   In the future, limit all interactions with him or her to a simple “Good Afternoon” and “Goodbye.” Always be urgently going somewhere and never available to stop and chat or book a date with them whenever you meet them, if you know what I mean.

   Remember Alfredonian Etiquette is not to imprison self expression or individuality but to prevent the destruction of civilization by bringing order to self expression.

Our Boys In Blue - a poem by Alfred

Through Cold or Heat, Through Strength or Pain/
They Carry our Troubles, All Night, All Day/
They Risk their Future, To Keep us Safe/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
Without Police, No one would be Safe/
Bodies would paint the Street like Syria Today/
After the West played Chess and won the Game/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
Without Police in America, today/
Your Head and Your Body could be in different States/
One Part in Alabama, The Other part Up-State/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
We owe our Lives to Our Boys In Blue/
They carry the weight of the Red, White, and Blue/
And make it a Nation all Nations come to/
Have you said Thanks, To a Cop today?/

Rather Than Hate The Rich, Become Rich - a poem by Alfred

Crucify the Rich, Burn them at the Stake/
Punish them for succeeding, where the rest of us has failed/
Their Remote controls the State like the TV channels they made/
Only 1 per cent are safe, 99 per cent are slaves/
Occupy the 1 per cent, Hello to Project Eliminate/
We don't need rich people in the world, walk 'em to their grave/
Like Marie Antoinette, and then We Would Eat Cake/
All Rich People are Evil, Greedy, and Really Vain/
Away with Rich people, Let us dig their graves/
They plan to dig ours, I can see it in their ways/
Who needs the Rich to build Banks, Skyscrapers, and Planes/
Who needs the Rich to build Rockets to take us to Outer Space/
Wealth can't create more jobs than poverty makes/
Poverty is what this country needs, take wealth away/
Destroy the Rich to make the world a better place/
I hate Rich people, even though I work all day/
I'm sure it's no so I could be Rich some day/
And if I get Rich I would give it all away/
Because I hate Riches, I'…

Madiba Says - a poem by Alfred

Success awaits every man at the top of the hill/
But after she shakes your hands, you see another hill/
New hills grow taller if you pause to sleep/
Success has feet, she can just get up and leave/
A Real Leader must love this people more than he loves himself/
And be willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for them/
He must be dead to self, and live for them/
Otherwise he might ruin them while saving himself/
Freedom doesn't mean having no chains on your wrists/
It struts forward to mean liberating others wrists/
So if you don't liberate others you're imprisoned yourself/
The walls are invisible but they are still there/
Education is the most powerful W.M.D/
To destroy the destruction of humanity/
Don't judge me by conquered Mountain Tops/
Judge me by the times I fell and got back up/

The Quotes By Nelson Mandela That Inspired This Poem:
1)  After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.
2)  Real leaders must be ready to sacrifice …
