Here are some jokes by comedian and actor David Alan Grier:
When I was a kid, a terrorist act — that was like when someone would take a dump in the swimming pool at the YMCA during summer camp. That was a terrorist act. That was the most evil thing you could do.
I didn’t grow up in this kind of world… I grew up in Detroit, Michigan, in the 60s, the 70s. It was a kinder, gentler time. Sure, we had a race riot or two, but deep down inside, we loved each other.

Breaking up is always hard to do, isn’t it? I broke up. I recently broke up from my little honey bunny. I was distraught. I thought I was going insane. I lost all this weight, got all skinny. My friends were like, ‘You look fabulous!’
Soon as a baby’s born, it’s all about the baby. And it’s scary because a lot of these parents, it’s like they can’t see their own children’s faults. They’re perfect. ‘Look at this baby! Look at him, he’s so cute. Look at him! Oh, and he’s smart, he’s smart — this baby’s a genius. He knows his time tables!’ ‘That baby is 14 years old!
