Just Jot January – 2020 – Humor Me

My husband says I have no sense of humor.  I say my sense of humor is just different than his.  He reads the comics in the paper every day.  I rarely read one unless he brings it to me.  I don’t like Jim Carey’s humor.  I don’t like Will Ferrell.  Dumb and Dumber – No thanks.  Ace Ventura – pass. 

Airplane?  Absolutely.  Police Squad?  For sure.  Grace and Frankie?  You bet.  Maybe I just like intelligent humor, not stupid humor.  I laugh every time I hear “Who’s on First.”

I guess maybe I’m just a little more reserved than he is?  How about you?  Do you have the same sense of humor as your significant other?  Does it make a difference? 

Thanks to Sadje for the prompt of “humor” today and Linda for letting us all play along.

    I have what my husband says is a strange sense of humor: very dry and understated while his is more in your face and you can’t miss it. I have been called “weird” by a few students regarding my style. Now I wonder if it is my humor and it is misunderstood and they just don’t get it. I get it. What one person calls weird is understandable to another. I call sending 200 texts a day as told to me by one of my students weird. Very subjective: humor and weirdness. But then again, I think having tattoos on certain parts including your face is weird.

    You and your husband have been together a long time, Janet. I am sure by now you have found ways of agreeing to disagree. Different sense of humour is common. My husband and I laugh at different things all the time. We often laugh at the same things, too.🙂

    I like dark and wry more than blatant humor. Funniest movie I can think of is “Death at a Funeral” — I laugh at that over and over and over. But then, I like Talladega Nights — especially the bit about praying to baby Jesus. It KILLS me! So I dunno, not the 3 Stooges, but Mr. Bean? The important part is laughing 😀

    (I just typed a comment and it disappeared. 😦 Trying again!)
    I think this is a male vs female issue. Men like more sophomoric humour (as the commenter above said), while women are a bit more sophisticated. I love Grace and Frankie, my husband loves The Three Stooges. 😛 Not a fan of Will Ferrell’s or Jim Carrey’s silly movies either, except for The Mask. That was fun and it had a Jack Russell Terrier in it. 🙂

    This could be a male vs female humour issue. 🙂 My husband likes The Three Stooges, me, not at all. I think men lean toward more sophomoric humour (as the commenter above, said), while women are a bit more sophisticated. LOVE Grace and Frankie! Will Ferrell and Jim Carrey’s movies are DUMB, as you said, although I did like The Mask. It had a Jack Russell Terrier in it. 🙂

    It took a while, but Mary now has my sense of humor, at least on some things.

    “Dumb and Dumber” was actually pretty funny, at least when Jim Carrey wasn’t on the screen. Jeff Daniels really upstaged him. Maybe that’s why I liked it.

    I’m very sarcastic, and I’m a fan of understated humor…and I love the Brit sense of humor. My husband leans towards sophomoric humor…so we collide a bit…

    I dunno. Humor is subjective. From what I can tell males like slapstick humor more than women do. Z-D will laugh at Jim Carey while I’ll just sit there and wonder about how I could be sitting there watching anything with JC in it– while Z-D is laughing his backside off. We agree on more intelligent humor, but the slapstick stuff doesn’t tickle my funny bone like it does his.

    Okies I don’t have a significant other BUT I find humour to be very attractive! Like if a guy can make me laugh I’m hooked. I was watching the new Kevin hart special on Netflix and his wife was like “bodies don’t matter, looks dont matter, but if you can make me laugh I’m yours” or something. And it’s true! For me at least. Like sure looks are semi important, but what I look for is a cute face and a kind and funny person. I’ve actually had people who I feel aren’t attractive become more so in my mind before of the silliness they have 😉
