Cost of Humor.

HumorIt’s often said that one man’s pain is another man’s amusement, no?  Meh.  I’d say maybe a majority of humor now-a-days is derived from poking fun at other people… But personally, I enjoy both innocent-making-fun-of-no-one humor and “HAH-in-your-face” or “I’m so glad that didn’t happen to me” humor.  Just wondering, but aren’t puns typically the most harmless?  … Don’t kill me, but I really enjoy this paragraph full of music puns:

“C, E-flat, and G go into a bar. The bartender says, “Sorry, but we don’t serve minors.” So E-flat leaves, and C and G have an open fifth between them. After a few drinks, the fifth is diminished, and G is out flat. F comes in and tries to augment the situation, but is not sharp enough. D comes in and heads for the bathroom, saying, “Excuse me; I’ll just be a second.” Then A comes in, but the bartender is not convinced that this relative of C is not a minor. Then the bartender notices B-flat hiding at the end of the bar and says, “Get out! You’re the seventh minor I’ve found in this bar tonight.” E-flat comes back the next night in a three-piece suit with nicely shined shoes. The bartender says, “You’re looking sharp tonight. Come on in, this could be a major development.” Sure enough, E-flat soon takes off his suit and everything else, and is au natural. Eventually C sobers up and realizes in horror that he’s under a rest. C is brought to trial, found guilty of contributing to the diminution of a minor, and is sentenced to 10 years of D.S. without Coda at an upscale correctional facility.”

Haha, get it?  Music nerds out there?  Anyways, it’s really hard to make jokes that make some sliver of sense, but isn’t stereotyping or possibly insulting to at least one party… unless they’re typically bad nerdy jokes. XD Otherwise, humor isn’t really humor if everyone can’t enjoy it, right?  (Okay, fine, that’s subjective and everyone’s a hypocrite if they say they’ve never attempted to make a joke by making fun of someone or their own past and/or present pains.)

Challenge: Next time you try making a joke, try making it the most innocent and cheesiest you can– without stereotyping or making fun of anyone or yourself.  Also for my amusement and anyone else who bother reading this, post them down below. 🙂
