What is the funniest thing you have ever heard that you couldn't actually laugh at?

Perhaps you were a little kid and didn’t want let an adult know what you understood a dirty joke or maybe you couldn’t laugh because it would make the situation awkward.

For me, it was something my uncle said.

My uncle, my aunt, my parents and I were driving somewhere in my uncle’s conversion van. I was sitting behind all them in the back seat. My dad and uncle are both avid fishermen and it was a great year for flounder. My uncle had caught a lot that year. My aunt commented, “I got flounder coming out the wazoo.” My uncle quickly replied, “well, I guess I have been fishing the wrong hole all these years.” Then everyone laughed and laughed. Except for me, I thought it was hilarious but I didn’t want anyone to know that I got it.

Still one of the funniest things I have ever heard in my life.

When I was 13 or so we worked for a farmer throwing hay bales. One day he came into the driveway with the tractor and baler, as fast as it would go. He slid to a stop and then went into the shop and got a go-devil, and proceeded to beat the living hell out of the knotter on the baler while swearing every profanity in the book. We were rolling on the bales laughing, but we couldn’t let him hear or he would have fired our asses. But god that was funny.

A year ago my father and I was watching a comedy. It was about a young man and his mom. The man’s mom tried to force him to marry to a rich family, and the man opposed to it. After some time it turned out that the man was homosexual and had already had a boyfriend and they were about to get married. The mother was bewildered and she tried to talk him out of the marriage. At one point she said something like ”... at your honeymoon, when you two are in bed, are you going to pick up your guns and shoot each other?” My dad and I couldn’t laugh. I really wanted to but I was scared that he would accused me of “being dirty”, and dad didn’t laugh because he got the joke and was offended.

This is going to sound awful.

I read a dead baby joke on Facebook that was hilarious, right in front of my friend who had just suffered a miscarriage a few days before.

A really loud fart in church from an 80+ year old lady. The priest almost lost it.

My dad was helping my grandmother cut down a tree in her backyard, without realizing that a bird’s nest was in the tree. My grandmother is a bird watcher/fanatic. My dad looked at the bird’s nest full of broken eggs, and said sarcastically “What a shame”, and tossed the nest in the yard waste bin.
