Does the adjective form really exist? If so, can someone add an illustrative quotation added; if not, deleted it. — Paul G 10:12, 22 Nov 2004 (UTC)

I see this comment is four years old. Nevertheless, I can confirm that jokes is an adjective in British slang (and possibly nowhere else). Citations are still likely to be difficult from our accepted sources, but you can easily find a ton of them on MySpace, Bebo, wherever the younger kids are hanging out.

People say it in Ontario at least :p, so not just British. At least I've heard it enough. 23:29, 6 January 2010 (UTC)
