    I think I have a dry sense of humour, at least this is what I've bee told.


    EXAMPLE: When my son was young enough to still be  in a high chair we were having dinner one night at my ex husbands parents house. Fish fillets were served for dinner and my son was sitting in the high chair when he stuck his piece of fish into his glass of tea and stirred it (Pieces of fish floating).When his grandmother asked him why he stuck fish in his tea I interrupted and said," He wanted to see if the fish can still swim". My mother in law gave me a strange look because she did not get the joke. There were 8 of us setting at the table and only 2 people got the joke. I asked my husband about it later that night and he told me I have a very dry sense of humour.


    What do you think????

    C B , I would have laughed heartily , b/c I appreciate that type of humor. When I say something funny like that, I get the same stoney response..... ........a stoney look from everyone, or I'm just ignored.- - - as if I didn't say anything. I find that jewish people get my humor and I can bandy back and forth with them .

    Dry isn't the word that comes to mind, but id have laughed! Your ex- husband was wrong.....probably not the first time.
    Bob/PKB

    CB, I knew you'd get that!

    My sense of humor is subtle, sarcastic, goofy yet intelligent, and spontaneous.  

    Sarcastically quick, not everyone gets me at times, makes me chuckle to myself though.

    I get all your quips, Romey, b/c my humor is the same way .
    Bob/PKB

    Chuckling to yourself is good. Sometimes when I crack up myself with an offbeat comic remark, people get a wee bit nervous. They make sure I have only a spoon at the dinner table.
    mycatsmom

    LOL. I get that
    hector5559

    u are ted,,farther stone ground u down though,lol

    Sarcastic but not meant to be cruel. Some do not "get" sarcasm so they either get upset or they need an explanation. ("What do you mean"?) Bright people always get it. I like being around them....no explanation required.     :)))

    Hey hector, how are you?
    mycatsmom

    some people say my humor is sarcastic, but I think the word they're looking for is dry or witty, or full of double entendres. Let's call it sophisticated humor.

    Oh but wait. It's not over yet. Notifications are being checked right now, so get ready for a quick response. lol

    ... absolutely one-liner goofballness with a major smattering of nutbar and a touch of slapstick passed down genetically from generation to generation !

    ... guilty!! The Groucho glasses are a hoot but the cigars ... kahhhkadoodledoo!! lol
    Bob/PKB

    My kid has taken up cigars. Ga-ross
    lindilou

    Get him the groucho gear to wear ... maybe he'll take the hint ... peeyoo!
    Bob/PKB

    Better than the cigarettes. He mentioned today he's been 3 weeks without cigs and only 2 cigars. It's a start.
    mycatsmom

    if he doesn't inhale, it's better for him. But, my friend, Norm, inhales cigars.

    I have a sick, dry sense of humour and very quick on the uptake. :)

    mycatsmom

    We would get along great !

    Ever since I morphed into a Black, lesbian transgender, I no longer partake. It's all "business" from now on. 

    mycatsmom

    Ha ha . Very punny .

    Dry , sarcastic,  and a bit silly at times.

    If i laugh to much i choke,so i try not to laugh out loud,,i laugh a lot on the inside..>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<..

    A humorous account of our expedition: amusing, funny, comic, comical, entertaining, diverting, witty, jocular, jocose, lighthearted, tongue-in-cheek, wry, facetious, laughable, risible; hilarious, uproarious, riotous, zany, farcical, droll; informal priceless, side-splitting, gut-busting, rib-tickling, knee-slapping, thigh-slapping. ANTONYMS serious. I try to be humorous and am too often taken seriously as I wander indulgently into the deep morasses of improbability and objectional mire of "ant it awful" in black and blood. "True Blood" is a comedy to me, as well, so much more. I have no fear, so many things I see and know of are humerous. I also see many sad things that others think of as being happy and satisfying...like those whose life is lived in an a repeating cycle of love-hate-rage-rejection-blame-guilt-sorrow-loss-vengence-denial-discover-fear-hopefulness-and so on to repeat the same basic patterns over and over, again and again.

    Romos, and his humor reminds you of a camel how ?
    ROMOS

    The camels expression is more the point.
    Bob/PKB

    ROMOS, that's hysterical, but I needed the explanation, unlike those who get all your quips...

    ....it is hump day !

    I don't like cruel humor. it tickles me when kids see the humor in things and they laugh, particularly when playing with each other. I like a witty standup comedians, that can take a serious topic and make it funny, like Robin Williams, Andrew Norelli, Chris Rock, Rosanne Barr. People with funny names tickle me and funny walks have always been amusing since I was a kid. Today I met a lady at the health food store who is taking care of her ill husband. well she said she is tired of it and does not have time to do things for herself. we were laughing away. well some things are so true and troublesome that they are actually funny. I call it deep truth and deep truth is real funny to me. As a matter of fact horror movies tend to be funny to me, even though I don't watch them to often, too funny and scary.

    tabber, have you seen old Charlie Chaplin movies.......the way he walks is funny .
    tabber

    yes Charlie Chaplin was a handsome and humorous fellow. matter we were looking at him the other day and my better half was very tickled. his walk was great and funny.
    as people are getting older it's a lot of funny walks going around my city. sometimes I ask people what caused them to walk like that. they actually tell you. some say surgery, car accident, etc., bad sex position. (no bad sex position is actually my imagination).

    mine is dry, witty, sophisticated. Usually nobody gets my quips. When I say something funny ,like  a double entendre,or a pun, everyone looks stoney faced.  :-(

    Yep, been there done that......

    You need a new clique. Double entendres can be hilarious.
