City of Juneau Launches Joke Hotline

Knock, knock — it’s the city of Juneau, Alaska here to tell you a joke and give you a well-deserved laugh amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The City and Borough of Juneau is bringing light to a difficult time by launching a joke hotline, a city-sponsored phone line that people can call to hear a new joke every day, Anchorage Daily News reported.

The hotline, which kicked off Tuesday, is run by three volunteers — two high school girls and a retired man — who will come up with fresh jokes, seven days a week to record for callers.

“People just need a laugh,” Dawn Welch, a recreation planner for the city of Juneau, told the outlet.

The jokes are recorded by 10 a.m. each day so that people can call into the hotline at (907) 586-0428 each morning for a good laugh.
