You all know that I think poop is hilarious. I went to dinner last night and had the time of my life swapping poop stories and jokes with someone. This got me thinking, what makes poop so funny? Nothing, really. It's just one of those things that makes me laugh.

What gets you giddy? Is there something that you find hilarious that is strange or otherwise not funny to the general public? What do you think formulates our preferences, humor wise?

That's a good question, Vavoom. LoL

I usually don't like poop stories, but you tell them so well that I always find myself laughing. Why is that?

Personally, I like to joke about getting into fights (whose butt I'm gonna kick!) simply because, in reality, I'm such a wimp that I couldn't fight my way out of a wet paper sack... And when the people I challenge catch on to that, they usually laugh too. It's just funny to me.

Maybe it's the stuff we find most embarrassing about ourselves, but are comfortable enough with to still laugh at?

Here I saw the title and immediately thought you had yourself another bathroom "incident".

For myself, because I've got the maturity of a six year old, it's farting. My six year old son and I make fart jokes all the time, even in public. We make a big deal of each other farting, and laugh about it.

My poor, poor wife.

Poop is the great equalizer. Everyone from the Pope to the wino down the street gotta do it. Super models, housewives and business men are all subject to the bm.

I'll keep this sweat and short.


Especially the ones where the men grow it really really really long and then place it in a swirl pattern on top of their heads before shelaking (sp?) on their heads.

Also, butt cracks.

Think of the infantry as the living dead baby joke. Training to kill people kind of loosens up your sense of humor.

I find any kind of humor funny, particularly the kind that makes people frown or get offended.

If you wouldn't tell it in public it's most likely my kind of joke.

This is so very non-PC, but being from Hawaii I've grown up appreciating racial humor. We're all so mixed race there, that when we make fun of other races, we either are making fun of ourselves or others can throw out a joke involving our race. Portagee, Filipino, Hawaiian, Samoan, Chinese, Japanese, plantation humor... we've got jokes to insult every race, LOL.

Well, poop doesn't do it for me. We'd be lousy dinner companions, I guess.

The thing that gets me going is weather forecasters. It's the only job in America where you can be wrong every day and still collect a paycheck.

Chicks with lots of facial hair. That always gets me and the family giggly.

Observing a moment of silence, it just always seems to go on longer than is comfortable and it makes me giggly.

I've had problems laughing during silent and grave moments. The worst ones have been during a death announcement or during sacrament at church.

I thought you had another bathroom incident as well.

The Fiancé and I are a bit on the dorky side. We get a kick out of integrating phrases from plays, books, or musicals into everyday conversation. It’s either that or inside jokes that make no sense at all to anyone outside the loop.

Dumb sarcasm! I love it!

Vavoom, please proceed to the following link. I think you may enjoy it. And yes, it is mine. And yes, I hope I score brownie points on your "cool bloggers" list.
