I have a very sarcastic sense of humor. I love memes and people who have the gift of making sarcastic comments that are funny without trying to be. To me, the best humor is done by those people who don’t try! Some of my favorite comedians are Ellen DeGeneres, Robin Williams (RIP!) and Alec Baldwin because they do so effortlessly and such a great sense of sarcasm.
The only issue that I have with sarcasm is that you cannot get carried away with it because there are some people who can take it to heart, and I’d feel terrible if I offended them.
I also find puns funny because they are universal and therefore appeal to all age groups. A really bad one that I know of is “What do you call cheese that’s not yours? Nacho cheese!”
Some of my favorite comedic films are Mean Girls, Mrs. Doubtfire, Aladdin, and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. I also have a self-professed love of Spongebob Squarepants, where my spirit animal is Squidward tentacles.
There are, however, things that I do not find funny, including the following:
1. Mocking or making jokes about people with any sort of disability or illness (especially cancer jokes!) . This is NEVER acceptable under any circumstances. You need to be sensitive because you never know what someone’s going or has gone through.
2. Sexual humor– it makes me uncomfortable, and I’m sure I’m not the only one.
3. The last thing on this list is people who say, “Can’t you take a joke?!” If yo think someone is being overly sensitive, please refer to the last sentence in point number 1.
For your viewing pleasure, I have inserted some of the best of Squidward in the link below. Enjoy!
