You’re not funny. Someone had to tell you because you might be about to do something really stupid. You might be thinking of a great prank or joke to pull off this Tuesday, April Fool’s Day…just don’t. People who actually are funny, have a special talent. Not just anyone can be hilarious, then again TV and movies have set the bar pretty low, so I can understand why you might be confused.
And no, I don’t think I’m funny. I just say ridiculous things that roll around in my head.
Sure, most acting awards are for drama, but that’s because they are afraid of comedic actors. It is more difficult to be funny than it is to be dramatic. Have you seen people attempt to be funny? I rest my case.
Real humor is ever lasting. Do you know how old the “Who’s on first?” bit is? Old as shit. It’s still funny because of the delivery. Listen to the original recording. If it doesn’t crack you up, you might be dead.
I hate April Fool’s Day. I can’t take it when someone lies to me. It’s one thing if they are being sarcastic…”I feel like shit” is a lie, but most of us can accept it. No one knows what shit feels like or if shit has feelings at all, so that statement is really a lie.
Saying that you broke up with someone, are pregnant, or a family member died as a joke is just stupid. Don’t dump a bucket of glitter on your boss’ head and don’t lie to your friends about some major life event or tragedy.
