Please don't.

Work is already miserable as it is.

Don't be a miserable prick, but also don't try too hard to be hilarious. Good middle ground out there

Well, so much for my "Thank you, come again" joke.

do be full of it, most of you talk to your coworkers far more than work really requires and you all know it.
i don't need you to be more funny, i need you to go back to your desk and do more of your own work during this time, thank you.

bingo. make all your co-workers happy by not being one of the 15 people needlessly interrupting their workday. farking coworkers are largely idiots and the worst part of trying to earn a paycheck.

Everyone likes to be funny. The problem is twofold. Most people aren't funny. So they just repeat things that someone else said that was funny. After all, if it's funny once it's funny a thousand times. Two - the people who really think they're funny just spew shiat at the wall hoping it will stick.  

Ok, maybe it's threefold problem. You know the old Carlin bit about average intelligence? Funny people are generally pretty farking smart. You have to be to make the observations and the connections, twist the reality into an unexpected outcome. When half the populace can't tell the difference between "lose" and "loose", you're going to have a lot of unfunny parrots in the office.

Or even in anonymous internet message boards.

If you aren't a funny person, be a good audience instead.

I'll be glad we can get back to the office.  People laugh at my jokes in person, but nobody laughs at them in Zoom meetings.

I'm told they aren't remotely funny!

I get by on being pleasant with the occasional funny.

If you want to be the real hero of your workgroup, keep any meetings focused & on-target and end them the second them the second they reach their goal. Earlier the better. You're done 15-20min before the hour's up? Great. Meeting over.

Even better if you can resolve the need for the meeting beforehand and get it cancelled entirely.
