One joke or joke is a narration oral or brief written, fictitious and humorous which is funny and provokes laughter. Sometimes it can also be satirical, ironic, critical or burlesque. It contains a verbal or conceptual game capable of riding to laughter and founded on the humor. Unlike the apologue, the fable or the parable, is not intended to moralize or teach, but only to amuse or distract. Many times it is illustrated by a drawing (graphic joke) and is one of the main jocular genres.

As usual, jokes are considered to benefit from brevity, as they contain no more details than necessary to prepare the scene for the final finish. In the case of riddle or single-line jokes, the scenario is implicitly understood, leaving only the dialogue and the auction to be verbalized. But nevertheless, subversion of these and other common patterns can also be a source of humor.: the stories without ton or are are a kind of anti-joke of their own; although it is presented as a joke, contains a long narrative of time, the place and the character, wanders through many meaningless inclusions and, At last, does not offer a auction. Jokes are a form of humor, but not all humor is a joke. Some forms of humor that are not verbal jokes are: involuntary humor, the mood of the situation, heavy jokes and anecdotes.

It should be distinguished from the joke, which consists of creating a comic situation from a person, a real situation or event, while a gag differs from the joke in that the humor is not verbal, but visual, as in the case of the tartazo or throwing cakes or cream cakes on someone's face, characteristic of comedy type slapstick.
