Okay, so we all know that liking dark jokes is a sign of intelligence (and maybe some underlying problems). The darker, more ironical, and satirical is the humor of your preference, the likely higher your IQ. Or, at the very least, that’s what I like to think. Liking these dark jokes might also reflect our view of the world. We all know that life tends to get icky at more than one point of its runtime, and it’s us taking it in stride and having the courage to laugh at our woes. Well, at least, smirk it all off. Okay, okay, nod it off. 

Anyway, you probably didn’t click on this article to read about the meaning of life, but rather to be amused by our collection of only the very best dark jokes. Sure enough, they’ll cover each and every pressing topic you might encounter at some point - from losing your limbs to losing your mind; these cool jokes will leave no stone unturned. So, if your bothers need some relating to, you’ve come to the right place to make your troubles less and your mood far better. 

Now, the usual - to check out these clever jokes, you’ll have to scroll downward. By letting yourself enjoy these dark humor items, you’ll probably feel rather smug, but don’t forget about your friends - they might want to borrow that smugness from you, so don’t forget to share this article with your folks. Of course, lest you forget, let us remind you to vote for the most hilarious jokes and maybe add in your choice in the comments. I think the steps are all covered, and it’s absolutely about time for some laughs!
