Sense of Humor Quotes.


A person without a sense of humor is like wagon without springs. It's jolted by every pebble in the road.
Henry Ward Beecher.

When humor go's, there go's civilization.
Erma Bombeck

If I had no sense of humor. I would have long ago committed suicide.
Mahatma Ghandi

Humor is perhaps a sense of intellectual perspective: an awareness that some things are really important, others not; and that the two kinds are most oddly jumbled in every day affairs.
Christopher Morley.

True humor springs not more from the head than from the heart. It is not contempt; it's essence is love. It issues not in laughter but in still smile, which lie far deeper.
Carlyle Thomas

Having a sense of humor has served me more than it has hurt me - just in the sense that it has allowed me to keep my sanity.
Dee Dee Myers

Analyzing humor is like dissecting a frog. Few people are interested and the frog dies from it.
E.B. White

Nothing is more funny than a chick telling someone to suck their dick. See they don't really have one.
 Doug Hart.

This is both funny and touching. Thanks, Q. Really, really, really. Thank you.

Love,

Jonsi

I raise a toast to both you, and Jonsi's Schwanzstucker.

I don't know how to say this without sounding disrespectful. But you guys don't sound very nice to me.

Tundra Woman said...

OK, anon, that's fine.
In any event, what IS humor-great humor-but tragedy at a distance? And why is it when humor REALLY gets you in your gut, that results in a full-body straight-on laugh-and CRY-at the same time?
Humor touches us, ALL of our being in the best possible way.
It's surely saved my life in more ways than I could possibly enumerate.

Jonsi said...

Personally, Anon, I pride myself on being "not nice."

Jonsi said...

Personally, I study zingers like these for inspiration:

Jonsi said...

Damn. I just said "personally" twice. How embarrassing.

upsi said...

Apparently the healing journey requires you to take yourself so seriously that in the name of said healing it becomes imperative to stomp out perceived criticism with handy phrases like those are your fleas talking, you are hypersensitive, you are projecting your anger at your FOO onto me and playing out a sick drama. In the name of healing!

We wouldn't take that kind of treatment from anyone, why should we take it from a fellow blogger?

If someone said to me, hey upsi, when you said this I felt scolded, I would ask myself: is there I way I came across as scolding?

Which is why the whole "I in no way ever scolded anyone and if you felt scolded that is your problem" has exploded. My mother pulled this shit on me all my life, and it's not my fleas talking when I say I don't want to take it.

Jonsi said...

Narcs are the skidmarks on the underpants of society!

upsi said...

I meant "is there ANY way I came across as scolding"

q1605 said...

Ah. The infamous anonymous has rebooted their modem.
Cali? Is that you?
I didn't know dick jokes were so offensive.
My dick thought it was hilarious.
But of course he's a dick.

Jonsi won't let my post through on her blog.
That's fine.
But that's what I mean. All I said was that you guys don't sound very nice because you don't. I didn't post a long diatribe. It was two sentences. It's easier to blow me off than it is to say we do say some harsh things.
Nope. Not "Cali."
I am only a non-ACoN so I won't try to put myself in your shoes or take up more time on your thread.

q1605 said...

"Never seen so many ass backwards country fucks in my life."?????
I thought you were my friend Jonsi.

q1605 said...

Since you are confidently not my sister I will say this.
Fuck you fuck ball.
I doubt Jonsi didn't mod something through.
I fart in your generally direction.

q1605 said...

If you came to my place for political correctness are you ever barking up the wrong tree.
Go have a couple of drinks to kill the bug you got up your ass and come back and say howdy.

upsi said...

I was "nice" for 27 years of my life and when I was being so nice, I wanted to kill myself.

So yeah, we aren't nice. We can be harsh. Fair enough. What's it to you, Anon? You want us to be nice for you? I am so sick of the Cumbayah drum circle of ego stroking, so pardon me for not being nice enough. I would rather be an asshole than be nice. At least that way I get to keep the parts of me that are real.

q1605 said...

I'd rather be real and offensive. At least offensive to those easily offended, than to wallow each and every day in some fake smarm fest.
You know the kind. A bunch of narc's patting you on your back while they piss down your pants leg.

vicariousrising said...

I've never claimed to be nice. Some people accuse me of it though. Poor befuddled fools (or ass kissers -- either/or)

Jonsi said...

Just for the record, I didn't get any recent comments to put through, and any that I got before have been published. I don't moderate, unless my identity is being compromised.

Q, Your mother was a hamster. And your father smelt of elderberries!

Hmm. That's not very insulting.

vicariousrising said...

Exactly, Upsi. This is what offended me so much (and continues to do so the more she preaches her "branch of healing").

Most ACoNs on a healing route don't say shit like she's saying because that is the bullshit we grew up with. For her to say she is so careful with her wording to be heard saying exactly what she means, then that says she knows exactly what she's doing.

Now lets watch for that revision.

upsi said...

Read this comment Cali put up and tell me with a straight face that she isn't playing games and trying to get people to "take sides:"

"Jonsi has gone into full-on character assassination mode. I don't even recognize the imaginary monster she's turned me into over at her own blog. Such crazy rage scares the shit out of me. Slavering, rabid rage because of....well just because."

Gladys said...

Any comedian worth their salt will tell you that "comedy is not pretty" - comedy comes from pain. I laugh at my own, not yours. Unless you slip on the proverbial banana peel, then I'm laughing at you. While I help you up.

I don't understand how any of us got entered into some popularity contest. Is there a cash prize? A sash? A fucking CROWN? Because without those incentives I do not care about being popular (yes, I can be bought, you betcha).

Listen youse - take me off your feed. Block my blog. Come to my blog and leave mean comments. See if I stop writing. I do not care what you say, who you are, what you do. I do not care how many comments I do or do not get. I don't fucking CARE about any of it. This whole thing has been a diversionary tactic worthy of Atilla the Hun. JEEBUS.

Preachy McScoldersons need to GTFO.

upsi said...

A-fucking-men Gladys.

q1605 said...

Preachy McScoldersons
God you got a mouth on you.
Yes this is a popularity contest.
First prize is a night with me.
The loser gets two nights.

upsi said...

I refuse to hide my true feelings behind the mask of nunnery and pandering. If that makes people stop reading my blog - all good my friends, better you know who you're dealing with off the bat.

“Let the world know you as you are, not as you think you should be, because sooner or later, if you are posing, you will forget the pose, and then where are you?” -Fanny Brice

vicariousrising said...

And I meant to add that I do the sake thing too, even if I know deep in my heart I didn't mean to scold or hurt someone, I take a hard look at how I presented my ideas. And I apologize whether the person made it all up in their head or not because the fact is that they were hurt by my words or actions and perhaps I could have been more sensitive or put myself in his or her shoes.

Cal has not done that despite that several people felt personally offended by her statements. That's a red flag in my book.

upsi said...

Hey VR, is your avatar the Grr Argh guy from the end of Joss Whedon's Buffy and Angel shows? I keep meaning to ask you that.

I am diehard in love with that.

Anonymous said...

I don't have a dog in that fight. I don't have any kids. I don't get in the middle of much of anything.
I would probably feel the same way if I had invested the same amount of time as you guys have.
This will be fucking hilarious once you figure it out.

Anonymous said...

It is wrong for them to wound others to make themselves feel better.

vicariousrising said...

Yes! It is! I worship at the altar of Joss Whedon.

Always happy to find another fan. I went to comic con recently and got a big hug from Xander. :)

vicariousrising said...

Hmmm. I doubt Cal's feelings are wounded.

upsi said...

One more thing on the scolding: if it had just been the comments on "Most Humane" I could have let it all go. But it was when she came on here and proclaimed that she certainly never scolded anyone that I decided to speak up. And when she wrote a post arguing that she most certainly never scolded anyone and that feeling scolded is reducing her to a straw man and projecting my scolding mother onto her. It's not as simple as she is painting it, just a little old cry for compassion. Not nearly that cut and dry.

q1605 said...

Let me guess anonymous.
You are mulderfan's stalker.
Only someone as code savvy as you would be able to go to another blog and post anonymously.
How DO you do it.

upsi said...

I love Joss too, VR. SO MUCH!!!

q1605 said...

Dave. Are you off your meds again?

upsi said...

Just what we need, fucktard on his Googling sprees again. Blowing up and threatening litigation for the smallest perceived slights. Oh that would be all too much.

upsi said...

And on his deathbed, his last words will be: I am not a troll!

q1605 said...

Maybe we can hook him up with Cali.

q1605 said...

The reason I say Davey le douchequeef is because he is quoting old posts of mine.

upsi said...

Yep, that's his calling card.

Jonsi said...

Oh, come on guys. Davey is my friend. Retract those awful statements you've made about him!

q1605 said...

I am sorry. I shouldn't call him Davey le Douchequeef.

It's Mister Le Douchequeef to us.

q1605 said...

I was trying to explain to some one that blogging is not for the faint of heart. If you are not ready for shit piled up to the knees don't hang your shingle.
To get out here and expect to remain unscathed is a dream.
The bullshit Mr Queef subjected us to makes Cali's dilemma look like a...
Well a queef.

I will gladly supply the group with some classic Davey trolling commentary if need be. He makes all of us look tame as HELL. Tame as all hell. I recall lots of twats and cunts involved.

How about bringing your upsi is a twat comment up to the top. Or put it over here.

Must. Not. Click. DO NOT TRUST YOU Q.

Uncle Salty told me stories of a lonely
baby with a lonely kind of life to lead
my mammy was lusted, Daddy he was busted
they left her to be trusted till the orphan bleeds
but when she cried at night, no one came
and when she cried at night, went insane

Uncle Salty told me when she was just a baby
that she'd get by and maybe someday she'd see
but soon she found her mother's love for all the others
the pushers and the shovers was the life to lead
but when she cried at night, no one came
and when she cried at night, went insane

oooh, it's a sunny day outside my window
oooh, it's a sunny day outside my window
oooh, oh yeah
oooh, oh yeah, yeah yeah

now she's doin any for money and a penny
a sailor with a penny or two or three
hers is the cunning for men who come a-runnin'
they all come for fun and it seems to me
that when she cried at night, no one came
and when she cried at night, went insane

oooh, it's a sunny day outside my window

q1605 said...

Do you think the Queef was pissed??

Let me tell you something. This guy got me to pull some of my early posts that I bled over by using his DAUGHTER as a tool for manipulation.
Never again. If the swat team was drawing a bead on my head right now, I will tell you that I will never back down.
Never again.
Cali's just some poofy narc that wants to sell some books or glom on to CZ.
I couldn't care less.
But to step into my ass NOW is to step into a buzz saw.

upsi said...

What a crazy douche.

vicariousrising said...

It must almost be Halloween, all the goofballs are coming out.

I dunno. For all that people talk about this hoopla splitting the community, I feel like it's actually more honest and real.

Anonymous said...

Nope, not Dave either. But you are getting closer.

upsi said...

I'll take real and divided over fakely unified anyway. Peace at all costs is a high ass price.

Where do we go from here?
This isn't where we intended to be
We had it all, you believed in me
I believed in you

Certainties disappear
What do we do for our dream to survive?
How do we keep all our passions alive,
As we used to do?

Deep in my heart I'm concealing
Things that I'm longing to say
Scared to confess what I'm feeling
Frightened you'll slip away
You must love me
You must love me

Why are you at my side?
How can I be any use to you now?
Give me a chance and I'll let you see how
Nothing has changed

Deep in my heart I'm concealing
Things that I'm longing to say
Scared to confess what I'm feeling
Frightened you'll slip away
You must love me
You must love me

You must love me

My final guess: Your anon is Trisha

q1605 said...

Ding Ding Ding. We have a winner.

Jonsi said...

Puzzling.

I feel like we're playing Clue and I have zero items - who dunnit? where? what weapon?

Can I be Ms Scarlet?

Damn. Ms. Scarlet was always my favorite!

Ok I'll be Mrs White "flames! flames on the side of my head!"

Jonsi said...

Wadsworth: Mrs. White, you've been paying our friend, the blackmailer, ever since your husband died under, shall we say, mysterious circumstances?
Miss Scarlet: Ah!
[laughs]
Mrs. White: Why is that funny?
Miss Scarlet: I see! That's why he was lying on his back, in his coffin.
Mrs. White: I didn't kill him.
Colonel Mustard: Then why are you paying the blackmailer?
Mrs. White: I dont want a scandal, do I? We had had a very humiliating public confrontation. He was deranged. He was
[points to head]
Mrs. White: a lunatic! He didn't actually seem to like me very much; he had threatened to kill me in public.
Miss Scarlet: Why would he wanna kill you in public?
Wadsworth: I think she meant he threatened, in public, to kill her.
[rolls eyes]
Miss Scarlet: Oh. Was that his final word on the matter?
Mrs. White: Being killed is pretty final, wouldn't you say?
Wadsworth: And yet, he was the one who died, not you, Mrs. White, not you!
Miss Scarlet: What did he do for a living?
Mrs. White: He was a scientist, nuclear physics.
Miss Scarlet: What was he like?
Mrs. White: He was always a rather stupidly optimistic man. I mean, I'm afraid it came as a great shock to hime when he died, but, he was found dead at home. His head had been cut off, and so had his, uh... you *know*.
[Colonel Mustard, Professor Plum, and Mr. Green cross legs]
Mrs. White: I had been out all evening at the movies.
Miss Scarlet: Do you miss him?
Mrs. White: Well, it's a matter of life after death. Now that he's dead, I have a life.
Wadsworth: But, he was your second husband. Your first husband also disappeared.
Mrs. White: But that was his job. He was an illusionist.
Wadsworth: But he never reappeared!
Mrs. White: [admittedly] He wasn't a very good illusionist.

I love Madeline Kahn. Only the good die young.
And she was the best.
I'll be Mr. Green.

Bess said...

Also loved her in Blazing Saddles.

Anonymous said...

I noticed that's its the same 4 or 5 people commenting on CS. I was too timid to say anything cuz didnt want to offend but I dont' understand this thread at all. how does Calis fit into Blazing Saddles?

q1605 said...

If there is a point in this thread it's to lighten up.
It's got little to do with Caliban's Sister.
The Blazing Saddles comment was Bess saying she loved Madeline Kahn in that movie.
There are no hidden messages here.
If I have something to say I will say it.
If you'll notice most of these comments were made sequentially in close to real time.
We were having fun.
Check into it.

Anonymous said...

Well if your only 'having fun' Cals Sis comems up an awful lot. You say this threads got 'little to do with Calibans Sister'? It seems all about her. LIke you guys obsess about her, and now that shes gone away you can't st;op talking about her. just sayin.
Not Dave or 'cali' or TRisha. Just an objective reader who thinks you all sound mean as hell and like a bunch of hypocrites.

q1605 said...

Maybe some of us are concerned that she has convinced the newer bloggers into taking their blog private or deleting it all together, while offering up her blog as an oasis of good taste and a safe haven from the cruel world.
You don't get better living on a deserted island. You don't get better talking to people who think exactly like you.
You get better by mingling with something at least marginally representative of the real world.
