JonBob: Sometimes I'm reminded how much less I understand cultural differences than I think I do. I was shocked to see these comments, because the joke subjects are completely transparent and obvious to me from an American perspective. (6 days, 1 hour ago)

Mugwump: However, just seen your comment and as a first go at a wall, it isn't bad so keep going just make sure the groups are distinct enough and better to put as many words as you can think of when submitting the wall. (1 week, 2 days ago)

Mugwump: Unfortunately I agree, not a great wall. The jokes group is too vague and you don't have to us sugar to make a basic bread. (1 week, 2 days ago)

JustCrust: Javelin05–Thanks for the feedback. It was my first stab so this was some good advice. Unfortunate about the typo, but I think the reason it said it was wrong was that I intentionally left ingredients off as a connect word entirely. (I made the connect words bread-related) because I thought ‘ingredients’ would be too broad to count as a correct answer. Maybe that’s a mistake.

BinDipper—May have little to do with the company you keep. The idea for the group was cliched joke subjects from yesteryear—probably should have called them “classic jokes” or “stale jokes”. I think no one tells these anymore. As an American, these four subjects (chicken cross the road, Polish jokes, screw in a light bulb jokes, and blonde jokes) litter old joke books, but some may have not translated elsewhere.

Wes—correct. Tried to not make the grid too US-specific. Only after I submitted, did I realize that even some of the seemingly most omnipresent terms here (like Italian Sausage) are North American by nature. (1 week, 2 days ago)

BinDipper: It must be the company I keep. Not heard a ‘blonde’ joke since about 1980. Never heard a Polish joke. Long may that continue. (1 week, 2 days ago)

wes: Are you American by any chance? (1 week, 2 days ago)

Javelin05: Did not do it for me, sorry. You have misspelt "ingredients" by leaving the 'r' out, so generates an 'incorrect' result. The famous topics for jokes is too loose, in my opinion. And different types of sausage, again too loose. Types of bread and bread ingredients were good themes, though. (1 week, 2 days ago)
