I Asked ChatGPT to Tell Me a Joke — Here’s What Happened

  • 1 min read

About blushing tomatoes and other fun things.

Ever tried generating jokes with ChatGPT?

I did.

It’s fun.

After reading about two German researchers who put ChatGPT 3.5 to the test in regard to generating jokes, I wanted to try it for myself.

During my test run, I found that ChatGPT knows some good jokes.

Here’s one:

Q: Why did the tomato turn red? 
A: Because it saw the salad dressing.

I’ve heard and read way worse ones ^^ from humans.

You should try it! ChatGPT has a lot in common with “that” uncle that always tells the same bad jokes at holiday get-togethers.

Let’s come back to the German researchers.

They found that it’s repeating the same 25 jokes over and over again — the tomato joke is one of them.

I think that’s still more jokes than most people know.

Is this surprising for you? In my view, it’s a statistics engine, not a comedy generator.
