Would you like to butter me up, put me in a good mood, make me your BFF? It’s pretty easy to do. All you have to do is tell me that you think I’m funny and mean it. Don’t say it sarcastically, like Unknown Papi does sometimes. If you tell me I make you laugh, I am putty in your hands.
Imagine how pleased I was yesterday when I got a tweet announcing that my blog is pee-your-pants funny…
I was tickled and flattered. I also choose to believe the compliment because the other bloggers mentioned are friggin’ funny, so obviously I must be a teeny-tiny bit hilarious too. Check out the Funniest Mom Blogs Article on allParenting.
Now that someone else other than myself has appointed me as funny, I think I can give some advice to the question: Am I Funny? Not me, I mean you. You know like if you are wondering if you are funny.
Do you strive to be funny, but aren’t sure if you actually are? Here are a few ways to know if you are funny…
- When you make a joke, people laugh instead of sigh in disgust. Keep in mind they will not laugh at every single joke. Plenty of your jokes will fall flat and that’s okay ‘cause you gotta take chances with humor, but if you never hear laughter or all the laughter is forced…well, that’s not good.
- People tell you that you are funny, not funny looking. If only one person tells you you are funny, that person may just have a bad sense of humor, but if various people tell you, go ahead and believe them.
- You can find the humor in just about any situation, but you know that not every moment is the appropriate moment to showcase your hilarity.
- You realize that being funny does not have to come at everyone else’s expense. Making fun of others is easy and sometimes just plain mean, not funny.
Okay, that’s it for my expertise at the moment. You can check out my funny in action by reading my post, Email Scam (from earlier this week).
And now your Friday Fortune Cookie
