A really good joke, like a great poem, memorable song lyric, razor-sharp anecdote, or Zen koan, is a portal of discovery--it can get a meaningful message across in a way that's clear, humorous, and practical.
It's the secret weapon of every great comedian--there's the joke, and then there's the subtext of the joke, and that can mean serious business.
A funny, funny joke about a therapist and his patient conveys, for example, an important lesson on the power of communication. A surprising joke about a tribal shaman and the weather service turns into a necessary critique on how we should view experts.
