Serious People Are Boring...

I'm not really one for making jokes at other people's expense.  People seem to love making jokes about how stupid I am.  Seriously, I'm an MA student.  I'm actually better educated than the kind of people who make jokes about me.  It's just some conclusion they draw about me from the way I look and the fact I don't speak much (I have a horrible habit of making spoonerisms.  I blame it on the fact that I never spoke much as a child and so now have trouble expressing myself verbally as an adult).  Jokes that make someone upset just aren't funny to me.


My mother used to say that 'Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit'.  No, it's not.  It's very very funny.  Being a very sarcastic person myself, I truly appreciate other people who have mastered it.  I also appreciate wit over slap-stick humor.  My Vlad often watches movies that rely on slap-stick and I just watch them thinking 'Is this really funny'?  Where as clever use of language always makes me smile.  There's a Monty Python sketch called The Working-Class Playwright' that I think is pure genius.  Also, the Nostalgia Critic is really a master of sarcasm.  One day, I want to be just as good as him :)

No, I don't find those funny either. Glad that it's not just me...

I like witty wordplay humour rather than slapstick. And I too, appreciate good sarcasm. <br />
I am in agreement also that there is nothing funny however, about laughing at someone elses expense in a malicious fashion. Or those horrible accidents people have on those funniest home video things - serious injury is not amusing.

I suppose so. Unless you're laughing at someone being maimed or something. That's less wholesome.
