“Santa Claus”

“Why does Santa Claus have such a big sack? He only comes once a year.”

Sapna, my cousin, wanted to originally tell a joke that her dad had been saying to her and her cousins growing up, but another cousin beat her to it, so she decided to tell this one instead at our annual Easter party. She was really excited about the delivery of it, too.  She said it was a joke she’d heard at work, but then she looked it up online to remember the exact wording and tell it correctly. Sapna’s always leaned towards slightly inappropriate humor, so I was expecting something along these lines, but it did make everyone in the group laugh, if reluctantly. Humor is a really big part of Sapna’s life, and she’s such a funny, outspoken person, so this joke was perfect for her.
