Social Work Jokes and Fun
If we can't take a break and laugh a little, we are headed toward burn-out! For social workers,
expecially a little humor can be a life-saver. We have collected some jokes and fun sites about
social workers and about subjects of interest to social workers and those in the helping
professions.

All About Web Humor
"Every workplace has that one guy—the guy who always finds the weird video on the net and
instant messages it around the office to everyone (except the boss). The guy who sends out
mass emails that are ACTUALLY funny. The guy whose funny Web finds seem to eat up about
half your afternoon.

Well... I'm that guy. And why not? I like being that guy. The list of websites I comb through every
morning is well into the thousands. I like sitting through hundreds of bad, awful, unfunny Web
videos because I know that eventually I'm going to find one truly hilarious one.

And if I can find that stuff before everyone else and deliver it straight to you? Even better. I wade
through all the muck on the Web and find the gems so you don't have to."

Evaluation of Humour in Emergency Work
Emergency work can be distressful, but in recent years there has also been a growing number
of publications which recognise the positive aspects experienced by emergency workers. This
paper identifies humour as a coping strategy which contributes to emergency workers'
adjustment to difficult, arduous and exhausting situations. We argue that humour enhances
communication, facilitates cognitive reframing and social support, and has possible physical
benefits. The authors believe an important delineation needs to be made between a healthy
use of humour and humour that is used to mask feelings in a way that will cause later distress.
