Ni and jokes

Me: *makes a joke and cracks up*
Other people: “How is that funny?”
Me: “it’s funny because ummm ehhh…I don’t really know…it just is!”

(Five hours later)
Me (finally able to explain): “Oh! Haha that joke was funny because….”
No one remembers joke.

I once understood a joke 3 years after it was made and started laughing out loud. Got the weirdest looks ever.
