Nothing's more laughable in the D.C. area these days than the local NFL franchise.
The Washington Redskins' ineptitude has many fans turning to that tried and true Level 4 defense mechanism humor.
Many locals have used our comments sections on this week's Redskins coverage to share their jokes … and we love it. We encourage it. We want more.
Did you hear about the Redskins fan who had season tickets to this past weekend's game? When he got to the gate, he discovered that he had left the tickets on the dashboard of his unlocked car! When he ran back to get them ... there was another pair of season tickets lying next to them.
"You can't do nothing but handle it with humor," running back and class clown Clinton Portis said Wednesday. "I can't keep moping around and, you know, everybody's sad and don't talk to each other. A couple of my teammates didn't even speak to me ... Jason (Campbell) tried to let the door hit me in the face. I don't know what the problem is. I told Jason, I said, 'Aw, bro, you feel that way?' He was like, 'Aw, my bad,' 'But I watched you look at me and let the door slam in my face.'"
"Nah, nah, I didn't close the door in his face," Campbell said. "He was walking behind me. I didn't know he was that close."
Which doesn't bode well for his hand-offs.
Many other Redskins jokes are circulating the Internet. Some of our favs:
