Here is my favorite homeless joke: A group of chess enthusiasts checked into a hotel and were standing in the lobby discussing their recent tournament victories. After about an hour, the manager came out of the office and asked them to disperse. ‘’But why?’’ they asked. ‘’Because,’’ he said, ‘’I can’t stand chess nuts boasting in an open foyer.’’

What’s funny about that joke? Not much. What did that joke have to do with being homeless? Absolutely nothing – but we all know that there is absolutely nothing funny or to joke about when it comes to being homeless.
