Gorham man lightens the mood with free jokes during coronavirus, COVID-19 pandemic

During the coronavirus, COVID-19 pandemic, one man in Maine is trying to make people laugh.

GORHAM, Maine — What shouts jokes and makes people laugh? 

In an effort to make people smile during the coronavirus, COVID-19 pandemic Brian Brinegar from Gorham stood in his driveway over the weekend handing out free jokes. 

"Day or two ago, I got pretty bored in my house and decided I was going to go shut up," Brinegar said. "You know how kids do with lemonade stands and charge for it? I thought I would do a free joke stand and not charge for it."

"When people pulled up, I told them I had two different kinds of jokes. I have jokes for kids in the car and jokes for no kids in the car."

Hear Brinegar's jokes in the video below:
