Thats Some Funny Shit GIFs

A few years ago, Laura Mickes was teaching her regular undergraduate class on childhood psychological disorders at the University of California, San Diego. It was a weighty subject, so occasionally she would inject a sarcastic comment about her own upbringing to lighten the mood. When she collected her professor evaluations at the end of the year, she was startled by one comment in particular:. A recent graphic made by Ben Schmidt, an assistant professor of history at Northeastern University, analyzed the words used to describe male and female professors across 14 million reviews on RateMyProfessor. In every single discipline, male professors were far more likely than female ones to be described as funny. I have a great time with my female friends. I come from the kind of family that deals with minor adversity by making relentless fun of the petty tyrants responsible.

It's funny in the way that bad puns are, but it had a sense of novelty when my grade school teacher told it shortly after we started learning geometry. The pun was relevant then, the concept it referenced was on the cutting edge of the classrooms knowledge. Now that I'm older and take the definition of a polygon for granted, the novelty of the reference is gone. Even if I'd never heard it before and it was presented in the proper context for a geometry pun whatever that would be it wouldn't be the same. I could say that I've become jaded to describe how I feel about the pun now, but is there a word to describe the original impact?

Another version of the same joke said donuts. That was when it dawned on me that my original joke was nowhere near as funny as I thought it was; it was an obvious joke construction that could be done to death with literally any material good. Some of the jokes on the board were originally pretty funny when they were first conceived of. When thinking back to my uninspired pizza roll joke, I have to think that the rise of social media plays a role in that. We want to make our friends laugh and get those sweet, sweet likes on our Facebook statuses.

  1. The definition of a classic - it stands the test of time. Nitpick alert: It's a screen door on a submarine. Another: teats on a boar.
