    better jokes

    I would like to express the following meaning.

    Students know/say better jokes.

    The above sentence is part of the following:

    ...you reminded me the days when I was a student and I was practicing how to debate. I think that all will admit that Students know/say better jokes.


    Could you help make the sentence above sound more ok?

    ...you reminded me of the days when I was a student and I was practicing how to debate. I think that all will admit that students know/tell better jokes. (The general rule is "to say something" and to "tell someone", EXCEPT for certain expressions such as "tell time/a joke/a story/the truth" etc.
