when a joke is said quietly to a friend and that friend repeats it loud enough for the entire room to laugh.

When you tell a joke to someone and then that person tells another person the same joke you just told them. The less time between the first telling of the joke and the second the worse it is.
Merrick- why did the turkey cross the road?
Wyatt- I don't know
Merrick- To prove he wasn't chicken!
Wyatt- why did the turkey cross the road?
(Wyatt is a joke poacher)
To repeat a joke that is told quietly to a friend and is then told to everyone by the friend in attempts to make him or her seem like they were the ones that made up the joke.
