Juneau, Alaska's Joke Hotline Gets Knocked Out By High Demand

This city of Juneau, Alaska thought people could use a good laugh so they set up their own joke hotline. You call the number and you hear a joke. A new joke was released everyday.

Apparently people are really in need of a laugh, because the joke hotline stopped functioning from the high volume of users. Not to worry, their technology department is on the case. They hope to have the joke hotline back up and running soon.

As of Wednesday the morning, the joke line wasn’t functioning, and Juneau officials were trying to figure out if it had been overwhelmed Tuesday by a “very positive response” from the public.
“We are already working with our tech department and the phone company to find out. Hopefully we will have answers soon,” said recreation planner Dawn Welch.

Oh, and in case you are wondering. Yes, the jokes are supposedly clean and family friendly.
