It's not like I started writing The Seven Pillars of Wisdom as a humor thread. That I would not have got myself.
There are many professional comedians that have never made me crack a smile. Am I therefore a humor deficient? Or do I not make enough cheeseburger and sammiches posts on here? That's it. Cheeseburgers.
He walks into a bar with his favorite cheeseburger. Bartender says, "We don't serve cheeseburgers in here."
Man eats the cheeseburger and says, "That's okay. I brought my own."
Bartender sees a man walk in with his favorite hamburger. "Yes, sir. What will it be?"
He ends up serving the hamburger his prize draft.
"Wait a minute," says the first man. "Why wouldn't you serve my cheeseburger?"
"What, does this look like a restaurant?"
The man lets it go and finishes his own drink. He goes home and reads himself to sleep, trying to get into The Seven Pillars of Wisdom. The next day he returns to the bar and says, "Oh yeah?"
He leaves without buying a drink.
The bartender chases him into the street and says, "Here is a free beer. I apologize."
The man replies, "You are a piss poor bartender. Could not even provide a punchline to this story."
Bartender says, "**** off, buddy." And goes back in.
The man goes looking for someone or some thing to punch him in the crotch, because he could be sure an injured crotch would bring laughter to everyone in the vicinity.
Oh. I get it. Took me a bit.
And when you got there did you find it was worth it, or were you just very disappointed?
I would be grave too if I were dead.
Tough crowd tonight. I titled the thread with a truly ridiculous question.
Theres yer problem , It was "truly ridiculous" To you, perhaps, but not to others who only wish to be helpful .
My father used to make up phrases and questions that were funny only to him, and whenever he opened conversations with others while using these phrases, he wondered why other folks thought he was nuts.
Youre sorta sounding like him. Im moving on because I also had no idea what you were on about. So now I can be counted among the truly humourless idiots who didnt get your attemps at comedy.
(Hint: never try to open a "humor" thread with questions about computers because everyone will tune in hoping to get some free advice even though they never had the problem you bring up)
"Rifleman's" on and I love to watch how the kid can get his father in deep trouble by being so literal in everything he does.
Incidentally, it was not me that characterized people on here as idiots, as you can see here.
