Caleb Oswald

Point of Discovery/Informant Bio

Caleb Oswald is one of my good friends of almost four years. He was born in 1996 and was raised in is Holladay, UT, but now attends school in Rexburg, Idaho studying business at Brigham Young University Idaho. Caleb heard this joke while attending junior high school in Holladay.


After enjoying a meal at the Panda Express in Salt Lake City, Caleb told me this joke out by our cars as we were each getting ready to go back to our respective homes. He had heard the joke as one of many he and his friends in junior high school shared with one another. He spent a few seconds trying to remember the joke before he told it.


[quietly]. Uh, okay, I got one. [Regular voice] Most people wear Superman underwear. Superman wears Chuck Norris underwear


Caleb was standing by my car when he told me the joke. He said the joke with a smile on his face, expecting me to laugh afterwards, which I failed to do. He, however, laughed at his own joke. He had to think of the joke beforehand, trying to remember how exactly it went. He kept things very brief, and we quickly changed topics.
