“I heard a really funny joke at our mandatory meeting at work” (joke)

When another telling of a joke doesn’t work, “I guess you had to be there” is what the joke teller often says. “Did you hear the one about the mandatory meeting? I guess you had to be there” was posted on Twitter by “choke” on January 26, 2015:

Another joke about a mandatory meeting was told by Ray on Twitter on March 21, 2015:

I got a joke for you. Mandatory meeting.
“...”
Well?
“I don’t get it.”
Huh. I guess you had to be there.


“I heard a really funny joke at our mandatory meeting at work. But when I retell it, no one laughs. I guess you had to be there” was posted on Reddit—Dad Jokes on July 10, 2018.
