What are your thoughts on the following joke: People that say they don't like cats just haven't had them cooked right?

Asked by Adirondackwannabe (33222 points ) March 11th, 2012

What makes something funny or makes you groan? That was a Foxworthy joke I heard this morning. The cat lovers are getting out their shanks to use on me, but it made me think a bit about what’s humor and what goes too far. Your thoughts?

Not funny to me. Anything about killing something probably I won’t find funny. There might be some exceptions, but I am not thinking of any right now.

I don’t care for Foxworthy in general, but that joke got a chuckle. I am not a cat person.

I agree with @JLeslie completely. I don’t think jokes about death are very funny. I find them to be cheap humor, so to speak.

That’s not even near funny. I’d call that a sick joke, but hey. Everyone’s entitled to their own opinions I suppose. Some people out there I’m sure actually would find this funny.
American humour… (Rolls eyes)

What’s so funny about that? I think it’s sad people would make such horrible jokes about killing animals. It’s not even clever.

Ehhh, it’s just another dumb joke that I don’t really care about. I’ve never liked his sense of “humor”.

I’m sorry, but I don’t believe that there is any cook in the world that could figure out a cat recipe that would make me like cats. Nice try, though.

I am a professional cat lady, and I think the joke is hilarious. People who say them don’t like chickens just haven’t had them cooked right. WTF—most people eat meat, as do most cats.

I’m head over heels in love with cats, and that joke makes me laugh. I also joke around that I’m probably eating cat when I order Chinese food.

@ratboy Professional cat lady? Hahaha. Didn’t know there was such a thing.

Mitt Romney likes poor people – says they taste like chicken . Now that ‘s funny!

I don’t really think it’s that funny, but I don’t find it particularly offensive or necessarily unfunny. I usually laugh more at puns and over exaggerated “bad” jokes.

I’m not really a cat person, but I find that “joke” unfunny.

I don’t find the joke offensive, but it’s kind of trite. Variations on this joke have been around forever, no?

MollyMcGuire's avatar

No thoughts. Either you appreciate that type of humor or you don’t.

downtide's avatar

Not funny, but only because I’ve heard the same joke (or variations of it) about a million times since I was a kid. It was funny when I was ten.

Very old & clunky gag.

It’s not hilarious but it made me smirk. I call jokes like these “dad jokes” because it is the type of joke that men of a certain age (ie: my dad!!!) would tell thinking he is hilarious. I’m sure I am not the only person here who has to suffer their dad’s obvious jokes!!!

In China, this question isn’t a joke…
