Paul: She wanted something she could use in the driveway that would go 0 to 300 in 80 seconds.
Steve: So what did you get her?
Paul: I put our bathroom scale on te driveway.
Steve: Thats not Funny... your a bully!
what I am in fact attempting to be
We all attempt it.
Some of us succeed, some of us fail.
Some of us are "funny" without meaning to be.This is the less desired type of "funny".
Some of us try to be the first kind of "funny" (the good kind) but instead become the other kind.(eg;Joan Rivers(and possibly me) )
Always make sure you are funny-haha, and not funny-peculiar.Make people laugh with you and not at you.
However, it can be difficult for some people to avoid funny-peculiarness.
Even more alarming, some people strive for this disturbing type of funny.eg; Paris Hilton or Jessica Simpson, just to name two.(Also, see words such as silly, Stupid, ridiculous and bimbotastic...if that word is even here..is it?It should be, you know.
example 2; "Stay away from that old guy in the hat and overcoat who wanders around the park all day.I think he seems a little bit "funny" (see also weird )
"You're a "funny" little thing aren't you?"
(this is seldom a compliment (although anyone who is "a funny little thing" may take it as one.
"Jessica Simpson thinks fish have wings and they fly.Isn't that funny?"
(you don't EVER want to be THAT "funny")
