Bad jokes have existed since the dawn of time, yet sadly these have not been updated for the 21st century.. UNTIL NOW! The QR code Bad Joke Project seeks to harass the public sphere by hiding bad jokes as an interesting and engaging poster.  

Step 1: Obtain some bad jokes

First to start this project I had to get some bad jokes. I took the short way out and used the Oatmeal's Dumb Jokes That Are Funny to find jokes i liked.

Other sources of bad jokes can be found at the following places:
- Dads
- Uncles
- First Dates
- Sporting Events
- Cocktail Parties

Where ever you get your jokes, make sure they are bad, in a good way.
Good one. I will deploy this on my 'hood.
Haha, funny. I will link this to my facebook, <br> <br> <br>-------------- <br>The world can not stop <a href="http://www.barcodelib.com/barcode_software/qrcode.html" rel="nofollow">QR Code</a>
Why does it take longer to make a blonde snowman?
When is a car not a car?<br><br>
I love this! I just posted 4 around! <br><br>
If you can't scan this:<br>Here you go.<br><br>You stay here, I'll go on a head!
aparently my QR didnt load :(
For example:
Our local zoo uses QR codes to entice people into getting more info on displays. I'm thinking I could copy the format they use and put the jokes around the place. That could be fun, and just another reason to re-up our membership!
Here is my implementation. The zoo doesn't seem to have settled on a uniform format for these signs, so these may blend in well despite my poor image editing skills. I've printed them on 3x5 index cards and just need to find a non-destructive way to post them at various exhibits.<br><br>There are 24, and all the jokes are intended to match the animal they are displayed near. I'll probably never hear of anyone finding them, so I'll just have to be happy with the thought that I did it.
How do you read QR code?
most use a smartphone. but i think they make dedicated scanners. which are probably more expensive than a smartphone.
Here's mine
If you need a good QR code reader (and you happen to own a 4G iPod or an iPhone) get the app called &quot;Scan&quot; by QR Code City. It's simple yet effective.
i am thinking about doing this..............
<div class="media_embed"> <div class="media_embed"> <img src="http://qrcode.kaywa.com/img.php?s=6&d=http%3A%2F%2Fj.mp%2FpyQfTl"></div> <br> I love this idea. It needed to be much easier. I created an online generator<br> <a href="http://j.mp/pyQfTl">http://j.mp/pyQfTl</a><br> <br> Also available on github <a href="https://gist.github.com/1141590">https://gist.github.com/1141590</a></div>
so meta...
I've done something similar - I just had 'YOU JUST LOST THE GAME&quot; in a QR code. I like this idea better, there's something to entice the person to scan...
This is a freakin' brilliant idea! I love it! Can't wait to paper my neighborhood. :)
Yay permission!
Just a quick note for &quot;jail and fine&quot; safety<br>I don't believe in the US you can put a 'sign' on a mailbox, US property you know.<br>Also most localities AND home owners frown on putting them on telephone posts.<br>Would really hate to see anyone fined or jailed for an innocent joke, lol, course they way things are going now days, we'll probably have a contest for most fines placing bad jokes, lol.<br> And what ever you do don't put them on squad cars, lol, the drivers tend to have bad moods, lol.
Combines two of my favourite things!
i forgot the joke by the time i scanned it. hahah :D
If you're looking for the fastest QR reader on the iphone, I suggest I-Nigma. I've tried a couple and this is by far the quickest. It's ugly though... very much not optimised for the retina screen.<br> <br> <a href="http://itunes.apple.com/app/i-nigma-4-qr-datamatrix-barcode/id388923203?mt=8">http://itunes.apple.com/app/i-nigma-4-qr-datamatrix-barcode/id388923203?mt=8</a><br>
Hahaha, I am SO DOING THIS!<br>Bravo!
That's funny ! (but geeky as well). <br>;-)
