1 a : capable of laughing
b : disposed to laugh
2 : arousing or provoking laughter; especially : laughable
3 : associated with, relating to, or used in laughter

The following is a catalogue of my attempts to qualify my sense of humor using the internet as a tool. Here are the results of three different online quizzes—

1) The 3 Variable Funny Test (OkCupid):

Results: The Wit (67% dark, 38% spontaneous, 32% vulgar [not sure about the scale here...]):

You like things edgy, subtle, and smart. I guess that means you're probably an intellectual, but don't take that to mean pretentious. You realize 'dumb' can be witty--after all isn't that the Simpsons' philosophy?--but rudeness for its own sake, 'gross-out' humor and most other things found in a fraternity leave you totally flat.

2) Sense of Humor Quiz (Quizfarm):

Results: of the Dark/Sarcastic Humor variety (results accompanied by a photo of Kevin Smith).

People never know if you are being serious or just kidding...and that is how you like it. You feel you have poetic license to say whatever the F*ck you want to whenever you want.

3) What's Your Sense of Humor? (

Results: Slapstick

Slapstick is comedy where you find it funny when people get hurt or fall down. You probably have a loud laugh and are seen as one of the guys (especially if you are a guy!)


Some of the questions in the above quizzes were absurd (Do you enjoying confusing and lying to children? If you friend gets a new dog, what name do you suggest: dog, tip-toe, pandemic, poopsy, or sugarcube?), and many featured grossly unfunny photographs of animals in compromising positions. I have discovered nothing about my sense of humor, except that I am funnier than people who devise internet quizzes. It is apparent (at least by the above examples) the internet is no place to determine specific qualifications of one's RISIBILITY.
