My Joker Taxonomy

Here's how the jokers are organized. 

This organization or taxonomy is constantly evolving.  Many of these sections have been, at some point, video'd or photographed and are on the site. But they are probably not current.

It seems as soon as I post an organization, a section overview, or anything else, it is outdated.

Todays count: 5,392.😏 (Click on that link to see the details of the count. Circa Dec 2019).

I present it largely in alphabetical order for simplicity .
  1. Animal Jokers 
  2. Animals: Flyers - Bee Boy
    Animals: Flyers - Bee Boy

Real People: Actors

These jokers are real people but not comedians, musicians (including Elvis), politicians, sports figures, pin up erotic jokers, or ordinary people, they have their own sections (long ago, there was just the real people section).
