Is there anyone out there who isn't funny?

Postby Rojava Free State » Tue Jan 14, 2020 10:45 am

One thing I often get told is that I'm funny, or at least that's one positive thing I often get told. I also get told that I'm annoying as hell and should be thrown in a spaceship and fired off to wherever the Voyager probe went but that's not important. It's one of the supposedly positive attributes I have, and I'm told it probably 3 or 4 times a week. However, like all of the supposed good things about my character, I often question whether it's actually that special. After all, there's like a million smart people in the world and a million people smarter than me so saying I'm smart doesn't really give me a sense of pride.

This isn't really about me though as much as it is about everyone else. Is there really someone out there who isn't funny ever? Much of my humor comes from actual events in my life, so I sometimes feel like anybody could do the same thing as I do by just retelling the story. But is there someone who legit cannot even tell a funny story in a funny way? has anyone ever met someone who was ridiculously unfunny? Does anyone struggle to make people laugh? Let me know your thoughts down below NSers, and if you got any stories about someone who lacks in the humor department, feel free to relate them as well.

Nobody can be globally accepted as funny or unfunny. The thing is that "funny" is an opinion. If people say your jokes are funny or annoying that is their opinion.
So thus, it is impossible for anybody to be considered unfunny globally because no matter where somebody may think their joke is funny, and thus even if the rest of the earth agrees that they are unfunny, that one person sill makes him eligible to be funny.

Beat me to it
What would things have been like if every security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive? Or if during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? The Organs would quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!

Yes, I've met them. The key though is to be funny all the time. Or be handsome, in which case they'll laugh with you even if your jokes suck.

Most people who think they are funny aren't. Comedy is a craft.

I'm funny right up until some client tells me to add humor to an article. Then I couldn't think of a quip to save my life.
