    Sense of humor is important to everyone I've noticed, but usually it has to be your sense of humor. My sence of humor is sarcasm/self deprecating/oberservational (Kathy Griffin/Elllen/Dane Cook).

    My best friend's sense of humor is gently poking fun of people (to their face) to make them feel included in the group. He's a master at it. We can literally go into a restaurant and walk out with three new friends. It's amazing to watch.

    What's your favorite type of sense of humor. Give examples of or stories of types of humor. I find the subject of "what is funny" fascinating. icon_lol.gif

    Our senses of humour are rather tame n lame. Everyone else seems to have a wicked sense of humour, and some are just plain brilliant with it.

    Unfortunately, I tend to have a "bitchy" sense of humor, always have, even before I came out. Which only further proves to me that those gay genes were always there, even as I was trying to deny them.

    The down side is the negativity, and I would get deserved criticism for it from my friends. So I tried to correct that, and make my humor more positive, and more self-deprecating. And perhaps a bit less cruel, except for those I think really deserve it. icon_twisted.gif

    My late & current partners both became my comedy partners, as well. Equally quick-witted, we do little spontaneous routines that have our friends in stitches. Whether for an audience of friends, or just for ourselves in private, we are always doing Abbott & Costello, or Laurel & Hardy, or any comedy duo. Our forte is appearing to be serious & authoritative, while saying the most nutty & impossible stuff, that fools our friends for just a moment before they realize they're being "had."

    It's another way we bond as a couple, and it keeps us smiling and in love. There is always laughter in our home. icon_biggrin.gif

    Bithcy, done well, can be great. Bette Midler comes to mind.

    Red - I have good friends that do the back and forth-Abbott and Costello comedy thing-they can have a whole room full of friends rolling with laughter.

    Thanks for the example/story. icon_wink.gif

    Dark, outrageous, surreal. I don't like depreciating the human condition, but rather, finding contentment in it by visiting outlandish parody of it. I like to sit back and say, "that's funny, but could never happen quite like that," a fact I find comforting. It is when people start to joke about things that happen everyday and could happen the way the joke describes when I get serious and closed off.

    The clips for example, I guess people use drugs and cultures do clash, but the subject matter is presented in such a way as to seem irrelevant or not as serious because of the situation in which it's presented. Example, a movie about four slackers who sit around all day smoking pot making mockery of normal people. I know people like this and it's not funny.

    Today, my 8 year old little sister said "f you" to my mom. My mom thought I told her to say that and grounded me for a month. Later, my sister came up to me and said "Gotcha, bitch." FML
