Made a correlation in my head. I have friends who get annoyed by me seeing the tropes - they say it gets in the way of enjoying the work. That's sort of like "Don't explain the work", as opposed to joke.

Would a subversion be that explaining the joke actually makes it funnier, as unlikely as it sounds?

Just a note on the chicken cross the road joke. I heard that the joke was about a double meaning on the 'other side, so the other side could refer to death. So in that version the chicken dies crossing the road, and its all funny because at fist you think hes just crossing the road and then you're like "no wait, he's dead. Haha you got me.". It makes it kind of dark I suppose, implying that the chicken committed suicide. I just figured nobody got it because no one really uses 'the other side' the refer to death these days. I'm probably looking into it too much, its just one of those things that keeps me up at night.

No, it's just pretty much the original Anti-Humor joke. The "other side = death" is a later twist/interpretation.

Steve Martin's famous joke explanation. This is probably one of the more well know cases for this humor going well. Ref: http://mikewhitmore.wordpress.com/2010/03/03/steve-martins-plumber-joke/ By the end of it, instead of scratching your head at the nonsensical story, you're laughing at Steve Martin, which was the intention all along.

There's no category about young kids who are so eager to explain jokes?!
