August 16th is National Tell a Joke Day

Knock Knock. Who's there? NATIONAL TELL A JOKE DAY THAT'S WHO!

Hope you're doing your research to find the perfect joke to share on National Tell a Joke Day! Turn this wonderful holiday into a contest for your residents. You have several options for how to share jokes but my favorite would be a Facebook Joke Contest! On National Tell a Joke Day, have your residents post and vote (with the "like" button) on their favorite joke. This is a great way to drive some traffic to your fan page and have a good laugh while you're at it.

Set up some rules (only appropriate jokes, no naughty ones...etc...) and spread the word to pump up excitement. Offer some sort of prize, maybe a giftcard, free dinner, jester's hat...something for the best joke of the day!

You can enjoy this event in other ways as well. You can hold a comedy club event at the end of the day and let your staff read some of the "finalist" jokes submitted to your residents and let the applause decide the final winner. Or, you can include those who don't utilize social media by allowing them to drop off post cards in the office with their jokes written on them for display.

Whatevery you do, have fun!
