Can anybody else see humor where other people can't? I often find things funny that others won't really see the humor in.
A good example is in the movie Night At The Museum. This whole conversation:
Larry: "Ooh. Okay. Uh, I'm just guessing- and I'm just spitballing here- but, uh, looks like that Roman dude got cocky and climbed over into the Wild West. And that cowboy knows the Roman dude wants to take over his territory, so he rounded up a posse and put him in the stockade."
Dr. McPhee: "(laughing sarcastically) Let's all laugh at me, the comedy night guard. No is the answer. Sarcasm back at you, with your humor box. I wasn't laughing. I was pretending to laugh, if that's what you want, some sort of battle of humor. Do you?"
Larry: "No? I don't want a-- No, I don't want a battle of humor."
Dr. McPhee: "No, you don't, because it would be a bloodbath. Nothing funny about Little Bighorn. No. I find it about as funny an a 'fancist.'-- It's not funny. Okay? And I will not stand for this type of blatant s-- If I'm not clear, tell me. Am I clear?"
Dr. McPhee: "Yeah."
I don't know, I guess it's because the guy makes no sense, and is absolutely not clear, and then asks if he's clear. You'd really actually have to watch the scene to get what I'm talking about.
Or in the movie Shaun Of The Dead. Like, when that first tuxedo-wearing, one-armed zombie comes into their house, and that fat main-ish character beats the zombie down. There's like this 10-15 second scene afterwards where he's just breathing heavily, staring down at the zombie all dramatically, and I found it to be the most hilarious part of the movie.
There's alot more, but these are all I can think of at the moment. So my question to all of you is, do you ever find humor where others can't see it?
