My Sick Sense of Humor

At first I was startled when I read a post called “Over the Top”, that was all about one of my comments. Yet, when I noticed who the poster was it made me laugh. It was somebody who blocked me over a year ago because they don’t get my humor. No biggie. To each their own. My remark was to another poster who is known to have a zany sense of humor. All I said was that, We potty trained kids and puppies in the same manner. We just rub their noses in it and fling them out the door!” Who, in their right mind, would believe somebody would actually do that? (Besides my parents).

"I wish my folks had known about that child psychology." (Homer & Jethro) Comedy is subjective, y'know. I remember Robert Klein saying that a woman from Sweden didn't get the slapstick of the Three Stooges and said it wasn't funny because they were hurting one another.

@Bluedoll -- when I'm making a truly absurd post I use Foghorn Leghorn's line, "that's a joke, son" as one of the tags. Some people, especially those who don't have English as a first language or aren't accustomed to our slang terms, could easily misinterpret things. I didn't want anyone to take my post about Yoko being named JFK's assassin as real (the reports said Jackie jumped up, grabbed her husband, and said "Ono" [oh, no]), so I had to tag it as a joke. Our slang terms remind me of a cartoon on The Electric Company:

Of course, taking part of what was said instead of using it in the entire context..."We potty trained our kids the same way as a puppy. It only takes one time of rubbing their noses in it and flinging them out the door. Voila! Instantly trained."...I don't see how anyone with any kind of sense could mistake that for anything but a joke.
