ChatGPT only tells each 25 jokes

Scientists from several German universities and research centers found that the most popular chatbot ChatGPT knows how to joke, but the set of common jokes is limited – it does not exceed 25.

The researchers worked with the ChatGPT 3.5 model – they asked it thousands of times to tell a joke, and in 90% of cases the chatbot used a small collection of only 25 options, notes PC Mag. At the same time, it turns out that “all answers are grammatically correct”, and for most requests the bot gives only one joke.

A notable exception is the question “Do you know any good jokes?” The bot generated 1008 jokes on this question, but they are all different variations of the original 25. In addition, some variation in the number of jokes is achieved by query optimization.

Earlier, many Reddit users reported that when asked to tell a joke, ChatGPT usually responded first with “Why did the tomato turn red? / Because he saw the salad dressing”. This joke turned out to be a really popular result, but only the second most frequent (122 out of 1000).

First place goes to the joke “Why did the scarecrow get an award?” Because it was exceptional in its field” – 144 times out of 1,000. Third place goes to the joke “Why is a math book so sad?/Because it has too many problems” – the joke was repeated 121 times.

According to the researchers, most of the time ChatGPT produces jokes by mostly mixing elements of existing jokes, and sometimes the results are not completely satisfactory, for example: “Why did the guy put his watch in the blender? / He wanted time to fly”.

However, ChatGPT demonstrates “understanding” of stylistic elements such as puns and double meanings, but has problems with sequences that do not fit into established phraseological units.
