Social Question

Why do some people post the obvious punch line?

Asked by Dutchess_III (46803points) April 5th, 2019

For example, I posted a silly meme that looked like a camel had a kid’s head it its mouth. The meme said:

“A camel is eating your kid. Do you
A) Save your kid or
B) take a picture.”

I thought it was funny.
This one person comments, “Moot point!! picture is already taken!!” Well. Yes. That was the joke.
I have a few others on my FB page that do various versions of the same thing. Does anyone know why?

Because different people tend to react differently to the same content due to different senses of humor, levels of sophistication, states of mind, other nebulous social/mental differences, etc? Or is that too obvious & non-specific?

LOL! Sounded pretty through to me @Zaku!

That means you’re “playing to a tough crowd”!

They didn’t get the joke.

They are probably the same people who after seeing a funny punchline several times in a movie preview laugh hysterically when they finally see It in the movie theater.

”... pretty through…” totally

I did not initially get the joke. A meme is not the same as a photograph.

A meme IS a photograph, with words on it @LostInParadise. Here is the meme in question.

Thanks for the info

@Pinguidchance Yes, I saw my spelling error too later. “Thoroughly” is a damn hard word to type!

I know this is light years off topic, but I’m watching a golden bumblebee outside my window at at this very moment. :-D I didn’t want to lose the moment while hunting for or creating an appropriate thread.

LOL!! This is social. We are now on the topic of bumble bee memes..

There is a real shortage of bumble bee memes out there. I’m going to have to make some.

LMAO at the meme and thanks for my next avatar, amiga! :-D
