There’s no such thing as “just a joke.” Jokes are powerful. They communicate intent and mindset. They should not be dismissed lightly.

If you tell me “Aw, I was just joking,” it means you got caught out saying something shitty and now you’re trying to cover your ass.

Speaking of jokes, there are some in my new Near Future comic over at The Nib on Medium! Go read it, share it with your friends, use it for inspiration in your day to day life.
