are you funny in real life?
like .'ha ha'. funny, not .'mental'. funny.
I am really funny.
Here is an example I came up with in bed this morning.
Podiatrists eh? Always adding insoles to injuries.
FUNNY LOOKING. (hiiiyoooo!)
does that answer your question?
My texts get read out on Five Live and everything.
I rarely get involved in conversations, I just walk up to a group of people, make a joke and stand there hoping people will point to me and say 'this' or make this face :D at me.
is this just fantasy?
I'm on a fucking roll today.
You can't do any comedic pauses in text form.
AND my favourite joke only works irl.
patient: "nurse! are my testicles black?"
nurse: *looks under gown* "er..no, they look pink and wrinkly just like normal."
patient: *shakes head and puts false teeth in* "are my test results back?"
Why was the Abode Acrobat arrested?
Because it was a pdf file
geek joke fail
Being independently funny is out of my remit I'm afraid.
I find at work people REALLY don't get my sense of humour. I saw stuff I think is HILARIOUS and I just get blank faces looking back at me.
sometimes i can silence a room full of people.
at all. or they don't get me and think I am really really weird.
in real life.
and a) he wasn't as funny as he thought he was and was trying a bit too hard, b) he's quite shrill in real life and c) he's a shit goalkeeper.
if everyone stopped wetting their pants over every single one of them. Or if Theo stopped posting a picture of pink cowboy boots after each one. Whatever happens first, really.
"I'm a born again Christian. I do lots of good work for charidee. I've never done a song called "Tits and Fanny""
"Ahh, Mr Wichard yes you have!
"Tits and fanny, how we don't talk anymore"
I don't do funny.
Are they the night shift?
and that's why I haven't heard from my friends in a few weeks. They've said time spent with me is 'painful' (must be from all the laughing they say they do once they go home and 'get' my jokes).
but 'irl' people seem to laugh at me alot, especially at work but its often when im not trying to say something funny but instead am expressing an opinion I actually hold or recounting something that actually happened, so think it is more of laughing at idiocy rather than being funny
but i don't try to be funny, neither on here, nor in real life. almost everything that's "funny" is of the moment, impossible to explain to someone outside your group of mates. i find almost all my mates make me laugh.
This is why he can't get married.
I always have to resist making jokes on the music board, because I imagine people will just get annoyed. Especially seeing as my jokes don't even get laughed at in Social*.
*cry for help
I was going to re-bump that again the other day, out of nothing other than boredom. And I don't mean "was going to but didn't", in an I-just-couldn't-be-bothered way, I mean I actually found it in my history, was about to post in it, and then realised it had already been posted in THAT VERY DAY with REAL dates.
I nearly wept.
It didn't go well.
and his dad's meat
all the more so in a thread discussing, well, rape.
Just try cracking a joke about Radiohead, though — that's when you'll know what comedic failure is.
but in real life I probably wouldn't talk to any of you.
