Jesse, if you are writing a story and including jokes then the jokes
shouldn't sound like jokes.  They should sound like double entendres
that are funny to the reader but not to the characters.  The characters
should not sound as though they know they are telling jokes.  Granted,
this is the LNH and the characters know they are fictional but it takes
away from the drama if the reader is reminded of this fact every few

Just FYI. :)
