Why I consider myself a Humor Expert

In our company it was Mike, developer in one of the teams I was honored to ScrumMaster for, who spread this competency. Ever since I consider myself a Humor Expert and wanted to brag with having reached expert level in “Humor”. Only now that I finally set up a blog I can do so. It’s only three years old and yet classic:
