I'm unimpressed with the unimpressed astronaut. And I didn't have to travel all the way to the moon to be unimpressed. I did it right here in the comfort of my own home. What a sucker he is. I bet he had to chip in for gas too!
And the difference between you and me being that I have a sense of humor and the ability to use and detect sarcasm.Clearly, you don't. I knew it wasn't the funniest joke in the world but I am utterly shocked that anyone would take it seriously. Who in their right mind would think that sitting around at home would be more of an accomplishment than someone going to the moon? Furthermore, what grown man would have sour grapes because he didn't get to go to the moon because those mean old astronauts wouldn't let him. like some 5 year old crying to his mommy because the wocket ship went up to the sky widout him.No, I think I knew by the time I was 7 or 8 that I most likely would never go to the moon. I just accepted it and moved on and I certainly would never have any ill will towards those lucky astronauts. But thanks for encouraging me to accomplish something. I think accomplishing stuff should be an ongoing endeavor and I appreciate a little push once in a while. Here's something you could accomplish. You could find a dictionary or, more likely go out and buy one and then you could look up the word sarcasm. You really should familiarize yourself with the concept.It's a comedic device often used in our society. Lord knows how many jokes you have missed because of this small but crucial lack of knowledge. And I'm quite sure you've gotten angry at someone and immediately let them know about it while they looked at you quizzically wondering what the hell you were so mad about. You should be excited. I think your life is really going to change for the better now. You'll find yourself laughing more and you'll no longer feel so compelled to go around defending your favorite under appreciated astronauts. I'm sure they catch a lot of shit from people who think they are better than them, but I can assure you that I would never question their superiority over me. I would be lucky just to pass the swimming pool test on the first day of astronaut camp.Let alone survive one of those Tilt-A-whirl rides they train on. It's been nice but I have to go call Brad to tell him what a loser he is for having to act in front of movie cameras on a movie set while I can just sit around at home and do all the acting I want. He's such a loser.He thinks he's such a stud because he's knocking boots with Angeline. That's nothing! I can look at a picture of her any time I want. He has to actually touch her and stuff. What a sap!
The ability to tell a joke varies, so does the material. If you compare the 4 I made in this post, not all of them were as funny as each other
I prefered the golf ball joke to the rest, but remanns and pjacobs51 liked the Occupy Luna better, so it is partially a matter of taste.
None of this of this meme can compare to how hilarious Fox News is and even more so when people make the mistake of taking it seriously then confuse it with The Daily Show which is just as hilarious and serious.
So maybe sarcasm and satire is an art better left to the professionals since a lot of people get confused which is News and which is Comedy, when both Fox and TDS are Comedy?
I'm quite sure that you were not joking at all. But if you want to pretend that you were just so you can accuse me of the same thing I observed about you that's fine. I may even make myself go grab my dictionary and look up sarcasm just to make sure nothing has changed. Because I'm still not seeing the sarcasm in your message. But if you say it's there it must be there. I'll just have to brush up on my understanding of the word and try finding it again. I'm also concerned that I've lost my sense of humor too because I'm having a lot of trouble finding the humor that you speak of. Wish me luck!.
Good luck since it always helps to develope new skills. While you're "brushing up" maybe you could study the ramifications of irony also.
The use of words to express something different from and often opposite to their literal meaning. An expression or utterance marked by a deliberate contrast between apparent and intended meaning. A literary style employing such contrasts for humorous or rhetorical effect. See Synonyms at wit."
It comes in handy when "trying to find a sense of humor" especially with the ability of telling the difference of "faking it" which can be quite useful with women.
I hear you. I thinks it's also very difficult to communicate only by messaging because you can't decipher tone or facial expression. Especially with someone you've never actually met. By the way, Rodney King is one of my favorite Philosophers so I'm glad to hear that you're a fan of his work as well.
