What's funny to you?
I thought I'd start a thread about funny stuff. What movies do you find funny? Are dogs funny? Are cats not funny? Do you like slapstick, dry humor, sarcasm? Who do you find funny on this forum? Have you seen something very funny in life that has made you just laugh out loud? Do you have funny stories you'd like to tell?

Take it away, .........Popcorn

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Word play and the ridiculous mainly.

Most favourite radio show,"I'm Sorry, I Haven't a Clue", favourite TV/film, "Monty Python" etc.

Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.

I like what many would consider lower forms of humor.
I love puns, and I'll take The Three Stooges and The Marx Brothers over most of what is being calling funny today. Nyuk Nyuk Nyuk. Wink

RE: What's funny to you?
I love all forms of humor, when done right, but dry humor is my favorite.

RE: What's funny to you?
It's hard for me to be categorical about humor. I can't always predict what will strike my funny bone. I will just list some funny and unfunny things.

Movies that I've found funny:

The Graduate
What's Up, Doc? (Barbra Streisand, Ryan O'Neal)
Animal House
Ghostbusters
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Any of Woody Allen's early movies

Movies I didn't find funny:

Just about anything by Mel Brooks
Just about anything with Adam Sandler or Will Ferrell

Comedians I like:

Jonathan Winters
Robin Williams
Richard Pryor
Bob Newhart
Monty Python
Woody Allen

Comedians I don't like:

See "movies I didn't find funny"
Also, Gene Wilder never did much for me (sorry, fans)

Funny writers:

Shakespeare (even in his tragedies)
Joseph Heller
Thomas Pynchon
Philip Roth
Tom Robbins

Funny people on the forum:

Girlyman
earmuffs
yakherder
Whiskey Debates

RE: What's funny to you?
Most of television humor I am not able to figure out. People will say anything on TV and the people watching laff and laff, while I wonder what the funny was. That has been my attitude for over half a century.

RE: What's funny to you?
Laughing so hard that I cry is rare for me. It's usually brought on by something ridiculous that nobody else would find funny. I can't think of an example though... damn.

RE: What's funny to you?
Ah, I remember a recent one now. My friends and I played some Mad Libs type game the other day. Which is basically a game where you replace certain words with other words, more or less. Somehow we ended up with the sentence "We replaced grandmas pills on the night stand with 42 McDonalds Happy Meal toys". I totally lost my shit. Which caused one of my friends to lose it as well. It was at that point I realized I should quit smoking, because laughing like that almost kills me.
