    I think of something funny EVERY time I read a post. Most of the time is isn't funny enough to bother writing, but I filter several jokes a second in my head almost continuously while I'm awake. Definately whenever I read something or hear something. I know I focus on humor, but I'm curious as to whether everyone experiences this constant flow of ideas (I'm not calling them good ideas, just ideas). They come so fast, and whenever someone asks me a question I think of several funny responses and a few serious ones and somehow choose one to say before a noticable pause has occured.

    2 hours later, I guess that answers my question

    I think of various ways to phrase responses, but I don't focus on humor; therefore, I am constantly thinking. While I do possess a sense of humor I rarely bother to implement it online.

    I agree with not implementing it online. Nothing comes across as funny online. It's very rare that something actually makes me laugh outloud.

    To answer your question: Yes, I always get a constant flow of stupid/humorous stuff. Sometimes its rude, but funny anyways. I can't help it for the most part, but like Dooga said, I don't really implement it online.

    Note: My post in Worst Chat Up Line were all made up in 3 seconds. Like I said, easy.

    Wow, that's amazing.
    I'm sort of the opposite though. I'm really smart, but I rarely implement it online.

    Now, that's actually funny.

    Note: It's only funny because thinking of you as being smart... :rofl: .

    I'm one of those who thinks of the good comeback line 10 min after I walk away from the person who I desperately needed a witty comeback for. But, it does seem that almost everything I read here reminds me of something else...another story, something someone told me, etc., not necessarily directly related to what is being posted, just something else it triggers in my mind. I'm known for shifting topics quite rapidly in a conversation. I had one friend in college who kept up with me on that (she was the same way), and someone walked in on us talking in the kitchen in the dorm one night, stood and watched for a while and then finally interrupted to tell us how amazed she was at just how many topics we could discuss in such a short time and actually managed to come back to the original topic eventually. One of my other friends describes this habit perfectly...I don't go off on tangents, I go off on secants! But I don't think of multiple responses and then choose one, usually just one thing pops into mind and I go with it. I guess that's why I don't get a pink ribbon under my name. :biggrin:

    I agree! Tonight was such a long night at work, and I'm finally sitting at home, and really glad that he's here being his entertaining self. I really needed to laugh tonight, and he's definitely doing a good job of it! :approve:

    No, that was the room down the hall...they always left the door open a crack too! :eek: Had it been a co-ed dorm, I'd have roped off an area outside the door and charged admission. Being an all-women's dorm, usually someone pulled the door shut as they walked by.

    you are speaking in english, but the words make no sense to me. someone pulled the door shut? I can't comprehend.

    :smile: Tribdog, have you ever thought about trying your hand as a playwright, starting off with tv perhaps? You are obviously gifted and you are popular with people.

    I've always thought about it. I don't think I'm seriously funny though, I'm more of a one-liner comic than someone who writes longer pieces. and to tell the truth I don't think I'm funny enough for TV. I'm actually very critical, and even the pink ribbon doesn't convince me that other people think I'm funny.

    I think you doubt yourself too much, your are certifiably funny. If I have your talent and your popularity I would not hesitate to write to every network to recommend myself. :biggrin: Need I remind you as well the industry has the highest concentration of pretty girls?
