This is the first word after half a page (1023, to be exact) of words that start with japan. Yes, I know I did not capitalize there, because there is a word, japan, before the word, Japan. That definition is all about hard, durable, black varnishes – but this post is about jape, which means to jest or joke.

Here we go, a new word (for me) about being funny – how funny! Jape also means to mock, make fun of, and as a noun, it is a trick or practical joke. If I had more material ready for this topic, the rest of this post would be filled with japery.

Here’s one for you: Say this out loud…. What do you call a fish with no eyes? “fsh”

I’m going to need something fresh for Thursday, so if you’ve heard a good one, send email.
