Humor uses threes as the completion to a joke. "The Rule of Three" is part of the formula. Many stories have you heard start out, "There was a priest, a minister and a rabbi … ." Three characters seems to work well when you are populating your own stories to make them funnier.

hardy har har

As a phrase, it’s like laughing with words; a subsitute for “haha”; when you want to laugh but can’t so you say hardy har har.

A Hanna-Barbera cartoon with Lippy The Lion and Hardy Har Har began in 1962.

Hardy Har-Har was based upon the postman on ‘The Burns and Allen Show’ on radio and had the same voice, same pessimistic personality and used the same expressions. (“Oh, dear!” and “Keep smiling!”)

Khaimovich

Three prison inmates were locked in the same cell; they soon began talking. “What are you here for?” asked one inmate of another. “They put me in for beating up some old Jew named Khaimovich,” snarled one man. “And why are you here?” asked the second of the first. “For having defended some old Jew named Khaimovich in a fight,” he replied. “And what were you arrested for?” the third inmate was asked. “For being Khaimovich,” he sighed.

The Genie

A drunk guy was stumbling home one day when he got lost and found himself in the bush. He fell to the ground and noticed a lamp. He picked it up, and rubbed it, and out came a genie.

“You have three wishes, choose them wisely.” says the Genie.

The guy, looking down at his last, and empty, bottle of beer, smashes it on some rocks and says, “I want a beer that will never run out.”

*Poof*

A bottle appears in front of the guy. He takes it, looks at it, and downs it. He looks at it again, and to his surprise, it was still full. The guy being very content starts walking away.

“Where are you going,” asks the Genie, “You still have two wishes left!”

“Well,” replies the guy, “Give me TWO more of these!”
