Not a joke I had a friend's son who join the marines & he was always in the DI face with jokes & asking why? guess what ? He was kick out very fast. Of course this kid had tons of problems why he join & why they accepted him is beyond me & this was back in the 1980's. So it was no war going on.
Oh one more piece of advice GOOD LUCK !
Actually, they do like jokes, they just don't want you to enjoy them or come up with a follow up. Try not to crack a smile as you're standing at attention, and a DI comes up to you and says" Head up! Suck in that gut! Hands to your side! If you kick a fat puppy in the gut, does it fart? No smiling!"
Yeah, that's the Marines for you, they're hardcore dudes.
Thanks for the luck!
