What kind do you have? (Perhaps post the idea or joke you find funniest, or something that made you laugh a lot recently, to give an idea).

I have a really really cheesy sense of humor, most recent example, my roommate sent me a text last night asking for a ride home and I replied “Whether by flying carpet, flaming chariot, or corn plowing tractor, a ride shall occur.” which makes no sense whatsoever but cracked me the fuck up. I re-read my text about 5 times and laughed each time.

I only just recently realized that I have/(had?) a habit of withholding my sheer lameness out of fear of being the only one laughing or not laughing, and recently don’t care and laugh regardless. Do you guys ever feel like you have a dorky sense of humor or ever hold back on jokes you want to make or things you want to laugh at?

Do you guys ever use sarcasm and sound so serious that people take you seriously and think you’re an idiot? I have that happen at least a few times a week.

I try to pride myself on being an opportunist. Jokes often have to be told when you have an audience that’s patient and in the mood to hear a joke, but often “observational quips” are the best ice breakers and the best use of sarcasm, as long as you don’t take it too far, and play against what someone has said.

Greatest thread ever.
And the answer is Fresh!

@Ellie – it takes balls to admit that your humor is lame. Some people think the cheesy sense of humor is, in fact, the lack of sense of humor. I’m one of those people. But this about the ride was good… it bursts with originality. And I think that people *click* when their humor is similar. :)

The improper use of irony and sarcasm is really a sign of stupidity. Lame imitation of some kind…

This joke explains my humor:

If your jetski gets stuck in a tree and it doesn’t have any headlights, how many pancakes does it take to reach the moon?

… none silly, snakes don’t have armpits!!

it’s no secret that the same shit cracks you and me up, my sense of humor is cheesy/lame. I was once accused of having a “low fun threshhold”, which I obviously considered a compliment despite the fact that it was intended as an insult.

I post Shel Silverstein poems here from time to time, his stuff kills me and I think he should be required reading for both grown-ups and kids. my 9 year old son and I crack each other up making up silly riddles. he brought this one home from school the other day:

Q. Why do giraffes have such long necks?

I find ridiculous things funny, if anybody has watched scrubs before… I’d say my sense of humour is almost identical to Turk and JD. Like creating little games with your mates like gravel foot, or hide the saltine.

daveb,

I would definitely say I also have a “low fun threshold”. That is an awesome term for that. I love this Silverstein poem, though it’s not humorous:

“She had blue skin,
And so did he.
He kept it hid
And so did she.
They searched for blue
Their whole life through,
Then passed right by-
And never knew.”

This is my favorite Shel poem

“Candy is dandy
But liquor is quicker.”

I posted Masks in a thread about relationships few months back! I love how Shel can be deep and shallow all at once.

I find most kinds of humor hilarious. Whether it’s intelligent or completely retarded doesn’t matter. I laugh at people’s failures (especially my own,) I laugh when things are not “the way they should be/the way I’m used to,” I laugh at things that just look funny (like Steven Seagal’s face.)

But my favourite is recall humor, especially the really random type. Using random quotes from anything whenever they seem to fit, the funniest thing is these things turn into inside jokes and everyone who’s in on it finds it absolutetly hilarious and nobody else gets it. I also love cheesy “badass” oneliners, I use these all the time.

Also, politically incorrect, offensive jokes. If someone has a problem, “Oh that’s just because you’re a woman/fag/socialist/poor/asian/muslim/whatever.” Or things like that. And whenever I hear something that sounds remotely like the lyrics from some song I’m very likely to start singing it, especially if the other person is talking about some serious matter. Same thing goes for quotes from films and such. Like this one:

@Ellie “She had blue skin etc etc”

I’m blue dabadee dabadi.

Haha, I do the song thing too Manimal… Your humor really gets me sometimes. The one that I thought was hilarious recently, something along the lines of “Take what I’m saying with a grain of salt… Hell, take the whole salt shaker!”

I also love sarcasm and douchbaggery, but not everyone seems to understand when I’m doing this (which I do a whole lot.) Especially not on the internet.
