My Wasted Humor

BBW Talks Toys BBW Talks Toys
OK, so today on my personal Facebook, someone was deciding whether to read Tolkein or Lewis. I commented and said, "Lewis. He's easier to read." Then her brother backed up my decision and said, "Lewis. He has a movie coming out this year." Someone else voted for Tolkein with some vague reference about a different best selling book. (bear with me, this is where the humor comes in.)

So a gal replies: "Yeah. Someone needs to make a Lord of the Rings movie." Of course, I'm thinking, ok, she's either been underground for the last decade or she's being facetious...

So I reply: "yeah. someone should do that. Or Peter Jackson could just re-release the extended versions in theaters, in 3D, with free Hobbit slippers or something! You know, go all James Cameron on the situation."

Then I take it one step further and say: "And then 3 months later, he can re-release it again in theaters, still in 3D, only a slightly extended theatrical version, with collectible 3D glasses that have prosthetic elven ears on them. For the low, low price of $20/ticket."

I thought it was funny. Really funny, actually. Apparently, I'm not funny??? I got nothing... more people commenting on her decision process.

Maybe it's because a lot of my acquaintances outside of EF are repressed Christian fundamentals, but I thought it was freaking HILARIOUS!

Nerd Sarcasm is lost on a lot of folks. I thought it was cute.

I think that a lot of people are sarcasm and facetious lame...they don't get it, especially on the internet.

But that girl...ummm wow.

P.S. I agree Lewis is easier...MUCH easier, but I got lost in Tolkien much more (lost in my imagination...a good thing). The historical references to the war and the industrial revolution (although he denied them all the way to his death) really strike a fancy with me since I am, after all, doing my masters in sociology right now.

That's my mini ramble for the day

Yeah, I definitely thought this was funny. Some people just don't get certain things. Too bad for them. A laugh is always good.

It just makes me sad when no one gets my jokes.

You're hilarious, and they're all a bit slow. I have the same problem with parts of my family.

I thought it was funny. Humor can get lost over the internet. That or they're just dull.
