We all have one.

 

 

 

The only question is whether or not you like it.

 

 

 

I was talking about sense of humor.

Quoting BeWell:

Hi Rmac,

Yes, I have a sense of humor and I like it, but not everyone appreciates it.

 

Unfortunately, my x husband didn't like it. Like the time when we had just left for a trip, got on the freeway, and an 18 wheeler hit our suitcases that had slid off the roof of the car.... because SOMEONE forgot to attach the bungy cords. When the truck hit them they literally exploded!

 

HA! I couldn't stop belly-laughing as my expensive lingerie pieces were being blown down the highway hitting the windshields of passing cars and trucks. It seemed like I was watching a slow motion version of a Saturday morning Victoria's Secret cartoon. I just couldn't hold it in, expecially when he stopped the car and went running after the bras and panties that cost the most. My laughing REALLY made him angry.  I just couldn't help it. HA!

 

And then there was the time when my 2-year old daughter released six tiny baby hampsters onto the floor and said with delight, "Search and Find, Mamma!"..... and they disappeared into the heat registers. I couldn't stop laughing!!! It was too late to do anything about it. My daughter's father didn't think it was very funny, especially my laughing hysterically about it.

 

I like my sense of humor, and it sometimes gets me in trouble.............. BeWell


 

Hi BeWell, 

 

 

 

Almost everyone lists a sense of humor as one of the things they are seeking in their desired match. 

 

 

 

We all have one – just ask.  So far, I have not found anyone who would admit to not having one. 

 

 

 

Some folk’s sense of humor might give one the creeps, but hey, it is theirs.  And of course some folk’s sense of humor might make other folks mad.  This especially if they are the object of amusement, the butt of the joke, or don’t find it amusing at all. 

 

 

 

Concerning your sense of humor -- I’ll take laughter thanks, beats crying over the same situations by bunches. 

 

 

 

Thanks for the comments. 

 

 

 

RMac

Quoting rmac22:

 

I like (liked?) Red Skelton and Jack Benny too.   Also a few others that I can’t say were exactly clean and pure.  Benny Hill comes to mind. 

 



Oh, yes,  I loved Red Skelton and Jack Benny as well.  Also George Burns & Gracie Allen--not to mention the Marx Brothers.

 

Groucho was also an excellent writer.  He wrote a number of pieces for the "New Yorker" Magazine.  And his autobigraphy is definitely not R rated.  PG is more like it.  He never revealed a darn thing that could be viewed as lewd or otherwise untoward.

 

And let's not forget Bob Hope. 

 

And, yes, I found Benny Hill very funny indeed.  Dirty, but in that twisted kind of British way that made it seem not dirty at all.

Thanks for the clarity and mentioning Mr. Winters.

 

Personally, I feel that the best episodes of humor or comedy is experienced with Synergy.  I recall the times when Jonathan Winters & Johnny Carson would get ' on a roll ' together and kept us thirsting for more.

 

Those were the days my friends ...

So far, all the stuff I have found on YouTube has him paired with someone.  Dean Martin for one.  

 

 

 

I remember your earlier blog, "Comedy is Born from Tragedy.”  I think I commented on it.

Quoting Curious2078:

Jonathan Winters was one of the best of the best.  He never swore, never got down and dirty, and yet his humor was honest and funny.  I still play some of his clips on YouTube when I need a good lean laugh that isn't naive at all.

Quoting Curious2078:

ROFLMAO



Always good to do some good.  In spite of what I said, I am often sarcastic.  Usually I don't intend to be.  Something about the tongue being faster than the brain sometimes.  I am not nearly as good at it when I mean it.  No excuse when I am writing, but it sneaks in there too.  For that reason I try to have someone else proof things that are important and not too private.

Quoting rmac22:

I think when we say we a are looking for someone with a sense of humor we really are asking that they have a sense of humor we appreciate. 

 

 



Oh, yes, how true.

Quoting rmac22:

I am afraid my definition was along the lines of I’ll know it when I see it. 

 

When I mentioned some comedians I was careful not to say they did not have a sense of humor.  What I said was it seemed so because they did not laugh at other peoples jokes. 

 

So, I went on the internet to seek better definitions of a “sense of humor.”

 

From that search, it appears that everyone has a different definition. 

 

  1.  The simplest being, ‘The trait of being able to perceive humor. “

  2.  Next simplest, “The trait of being able to appreciate humor.”

  3.  And finally, “The traits of being able to appreciate and express humor.”

There was another which was, “The ability to enjoy life.”  All paraphrased by the way. 

 

Everything else, I think, was essentially covered within these four. 

 

To like or appreciate someone else’s sense of humor, I think, we would have to appreciate what they find amusing and how they express that amusement. 

 

So, your comment that comedians and I might have different definitions – I expect we do.  

 

I really like Jonathon Winter’s sense of humor by the way.  The present tense is warranted.  I can still find examples on YouTube.  Just search Jonathon Winters.

***  Mr Mac, Hoping & Easyman  ***

 

If you may recall, I previously had a topic here titled,  " Comedy is Born from Tragedy ".

 

A real life topic, having done Improv in N Y C. back in the seventies.  It was my belief then and since reinforced by the tragedy of a dear friend, namely The Legendary Robin Williams. He had a troubled life that was little known to the masses during his perceived ' Glorious Career '.

 

Mr. Mac, perhaps your definition of,  ' a sense of humor '  may differ from that of a comedian ?.

 

Kindly expand or clarify.

Quoting easymantolove:

I'm still stuck on the part that "everyone has one"... ;-)



 

The only people I have met who don’t seem to have a sense of humor at all were all very good comedians.  I won’t say all comedians just some I have met.  Mostly they seemed sad, lonely, people. 

 

 

 

The ones I am talking about could really tell jokes, timing, and punch line, all well delivered.  However, if you told them a joke – nothing, no laughter, no smile, just the sense that they were maybe taking notes.  “Let me see, with better timing, a few word changes that one might be worth adding to my repertoire.” If you went out to eat with a bunch of people, these folks could keep you all chuckling through the whole meal.  They had a joke or a comeback that was amusing for everything any one said.  A bit strenuous if you had to endure it every day.
