One-liners, funny single-lined jokes

What kind of funny humor is a one-liner? A one-liner is a joke that is delivered in a single line. Are they as funny as a funny blog, funny clips or funny pictures? A one-liner is a joke that takes to its heart the principle that brevity is the soul of wit. One-liners are known for eliciting cheap, quick laughs, but they can become tiresome to audiences when used excessively by a performer. An example of moviestars using one-liners frequently is Arnold Schwarzenegger. One-liner jokes are still very populair, also by stand-up comedians.
