Automatic Joke Generation

How to Write Original Jokes (Or Have A Computer Do It For You)

This is a Common Lisp code walkthrough for generating original jokes. You seed the generator with the knowledge about different objects, and it uses that vocabulary to generate unique jokes. All of the jokes are of the form: ?What do you get when you cross X with Y?? This code was originally written for my CS288: An AI Approach to Natural Language Processing class at UC Berkeley in 2004.

    Huh the machines are taking over the humor department too. Soon will be needed just to generate electricity.
