    Comedians

    My favourite genre of comedy is dark... And by far stand up comics. People like Dylan Moran, Billy Connelly, John Cleese - comedians like those guys bemoan society for an hour and all I can do is laugh and laugh... But what they're talking about is deep too... It changes my...

    That'S Right.

    Using sarcasm is a big deal in my life. Not everyone catches on to it, but then I usually have to break it down to them. Most of the time when I say something sarcastic , you can tell by the tone of my voice.... But some people still just don't get it -__-.I have a strange sense...

    It Is Every Where Around Us

    A prime example of what I am talking about would be a sign that I saw at a local municipal building. It was posted about six feet up and was written in bold letters. It stated simply, "If you are blind you can request help reading forms." Just who the hell is that sign for? Would...

    A Goodie Revisited

    They say that texting

    and driving is more dangerous than driving drunk but I only text and drive when I'm drunk. It usually something like "hit another kid, lol, off to buy more whisky."

    Here's Something Ironic

    When people use the word "utopia", they're usually referring to some sort of paradise. Well, here's the ironic thing, in Greek, "utopia" means "no place".

    Weird

    Most ironic word in English. It violates the "I" before "E" rule and is thus spelled weird.

    I said "dark, but not creepy".

    It told me to make my story longer! I wonder if this is long enough. Or maybe now....surely now.... here is an example... I am trying to give up sexual innuendo...but it's hard....so hard!

    Very Much So

    I dwell in this realm most often, so much so that people think of me as rude at times when I'm usually just being sarcastic. And I think some dark musings are just genius. I do enjoy and love the type of humor I have....no matter if anyone dislikes it. I am me and I know who I...

    Is There Any Other?

    The only real humor you will get out of me is dark, sarcastic, and usually jokingly scathing. It's the best kind of humor to me. I love knowing how to cut someone down and having them laugh their *** off while they are returning the barbs. Some of my best friends that I joke...

    But I Can't Explain Why, Or What I Particularly Like About This Kind of Humour

    The most absurd part of my belonging to this category, however, is that I still can't think of a single, good example to illustrate what I like about these forms of humour, and why I like them.  Therefore, you'll just have to trust I know what I'm talking about when I say I...
