Now that I have got your full attention, am I one of the only ones with a twisted view on what humor is? I almost can't laugh at regular shit anymore...it's really bad.
Someone will tell a funny joke (clean or dirty) and I won't even smile...yet when I was bored and looking up Disney deaths, I laughed my ass off reading about a maintenance working getting crushed by the boat in "It's a Small World" at Euro Disney. It was so ironic...I could picture the horror on his face as that song was playing...
Is that fucked up, am I fucked up, or is it just normal because as a society, we are so desensitized towards violence? I'm not a very violent person myself (some anger issues, I'd admit) and I was raised where I wasn't allowed to even watch TV-14 movies until I was 14-15. I didn't see my first R movie until I was 16...and it was Borat! (I sneaked in)
Anyways, sorry if I offended anyone, but then again, this is a spam thread, right?

Oh, I also told this to my grandmother (81 year old WWII survivor from Brussels, Belgium) and my normally really reserved aunt and they both laughed...or chuckled.
Yes, I can talk about this stuff with them.
That's messed, opie.
I had thought that dry brain was due in part to old age. I was referring to myself in particular and society in general. I understand that cognitive decline may start as soon as one's early 20's, but does that cause our sense of humor to change? Or is it something ingrained within our personalities?
If you were referring to the age of my grandmother, cognitively speaking, she's on par with people a quarter of her age. I have no problem discussing mythology, languages, and socio-political issues of the day with her. An attempt at sarcasm wasn't clearly understood. does_not_compute
