This Online Group Has People Sharing Jokes From The Comments That Are Better Than The Original Posts (131 Pics)

If you’re no stranger to social media (does that even qualify as a dad joke?), you know very well that comments can be both a curse and somewhat of a blessing. Written from the comfort of your private IP address, they can range from needlessly mean to inspirational and mood-lifting. On some occasions, they offer better content than the post itself. Especially if we’re talking jokes.

Thanks to the subreddit “The Real Joke,” which, as their description reads, is “dedicated to those of us who find the better joke in the comments section of any subreddit or other medium,” we now have the best comedy bits that come right from the backlines of any given post.

Created two years ago, the community with 244k members offers a hand-picked selection of screenshots that serve as evidence that you don’t need to look far for a good one. Scroll down a bit, and then some more, to see what fun things they had to comment on.

To find out more about the r/TheRealJoke subreddit and the community behind it, Bored Panda reached out to its creator and moderator RichterRicochet. He explained that the community was formed because of a recurring meme in the r/jokes subreddit “wherein, if someone made a joke in the comments section of a joke that was posted (and the comment’s joke was better), then someone would reply with ‘The Real Joke is in/is always in the comments.'”

“This gag persisted for quite some time,” so redditor RichterRicochet took it upon himself to open the r/TheRealJoke subreddit as “something of a highlight reel for these comments.”

It turns out, the community is extremely active. “With over 240k subscribers, the subreddit exploded over the course of the last year,” said RichterRicochet and added: “while there is an upside in that there’s a greater influx of content, the downside is the lacking moderation.”

There are only two active moderators making sure the subreddit goes according to the rules. “Needless to say, there’s a lot of dirt to sift through to get to the gems of the community.”

#6 Trj Education Edition

When asked what the title “The Real Joke” refers to, RichterRicochet simply said that the real joke is always found in the comments and that sums up the essence of the subreddit.

A fan favorite of RichterRicochet is one in their top (of all time) section titled “Oof.” Another good one according to him is from this past week, called “Bro, really tho…” “It plays on the stereotypes of people from Alabama having bad hygiene/being coupled with family.”

In the end, Richter Ricochet concluded that “Something to bear in mind is that since the subreddit started, it’s essentially become something of an anarchy nightmare.” Thus, he invites anyone who “feels that they can bring order to this mess we call home.”
