Default Humor Forum?


Is there a humorous writing forum somewhere on this site?

You can post humor in any of the sections designated for critique. If it's really humorous, people will see it. They don't need to know it ahead of time.

If you need to put it in a particular place for people to know it's humour, it's probably not.

A sarcasm forum would be a good idea though.

English is a strange language. It can be understood through tough thorough thought though.

Really, and here I thought Mike wanted to turn the entire forum into a sarcasm palace.

In response to Pkro, as Joe has set just post it wherever you think it fits in. Humour is a very fickle thing, what one person finds amusing another will find it to be not so. All you can do is try and see what works for you.

Understood. I was really wondering about reading some without sifting through miles of poetry to find it.

If I did, I would have to bow in deference to your greater expertise.

So this grasshopper walks into a bar and jumps up on a stool asking if he could get some service..

The bartender turns around and says, "hey, we have a drink named after you!"

The grasshopper says, "you have a drink named Frank?"


It was so cold today that when I looked out my back window I saw a squirrel blowing on his nuts trying to keep them warm.


"Honey the doctor said I either have aids of alzhiemers.
Jesus woman that's one helluva difference. I'm gonna have a talk with that doctor.
Doc my wife was in your office earlier and you told her she either has aids or alzheimers. How the hell do we find out for sure?
Tell you what sir, drive her fifty miles into the countryside and let her out and drive yourself home.
Then what do I do doc?
If she finds her way home...don't fuck her.

you could enter Humor into the Free Writing subforum.
