Insert Joke Here

There is nothing lazier than a comedy writer who uses an [insert *whatever* joke here].

Has anyone ever even laughed at one of those? Like, haha, a joke could go there! I'm giggling just thinking of a potential joke that fits there!

I suppose the implication is that the joke flows so obviously that there's no reason to even write it. But isn't "[insert joke here]" even more of a cliche at this point?

If a joke is so simple, why not just write one then? It shouldn't be that hard to just push one out. [Insert poop joke here.] Besides, if your reader can just as easily make a comparable joke, it's time for you to get out of the game.

In conclusion, [insert poignant and hilarious joke here.]
