“My friend told me a joke about a TV controller. It wasn’t remotely funny”

A popular pun about the tv remote is:

“My friend told me a joke about a TV controller. It wasn’t remotely funny.”

“I told my TV controller a joke. It wasn’t remotely funny” was on Sickipedia in 2010. “My mate tried to tell me a joke about a control which changes the tv channel.It wasn’t even remotely funny” was cited on Twitter on July 16, 2011.

The joke went viral in January 2012. “My mate told me a joke about a TV controller. It wasn’t remotely funny” was cited on Twitter on January 16, 2012.

Another joke about a remote is: “The first time I saw a universal remote control I thought, ‘This changes everything.‘“

My girlfriend just dumped me after a kinky sex session went too far
She said using the TV controller as a dildo wasn’t ‘remotely’ funny…
