The Three Variable Humor Test

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a meme and I saw this one over at Mr. Hoke’s blog and thought I’d give it a shot.

the Cutting Edge
(52% dark, 56% spontaneous, 27% vulgar)
your humor style:
CLEAN | SPONTANEOUS | DARK

Your humor’s mostly innocent and off-the-cuff, but somehow there’s
something slightly menacing about you. Part of your humor is making
people a little uncomfortable, even if the things you say aren’t in and
of themselves confrontational. You probably have a very dry delivery,
or are seriously over-the-top. Your type is the most likely to
appreciate a good insult and/or broken bone and/or very very fat person
dancing.

I always thought I was a bit more vulgar in my humor, but the results could’ve been skewed in part because there’s at least two questions that asked you to pick your favorite funny movie where I’d not seen half of the offerings listed and as such couldn’t pick them. Still, not a bad result.

  2. I’m not too happy about being compared to Johnny Knoxville but I think the person who designed this test likes him so I’ll try to see it as a compliment.

    Plus, I’m still trying to decide which answer gave me a score of 89% vulgar…
    Spontaneous is right on though.

    your humor style:
    VULGAR | SPONTANEOUS | LIGHT

    You like things silly, immediate, and, above all, outrageous. Ixne on the subtle word play, more testicles on fire, please. People like you are the most likely to RECEIVE internet forwards—and also the most likely to save them in a special folder entitled ‘HOLY SHIT’.

    Because it’s so easily appreciated, and often a little physical, your sense of humor never ceases to amuse your friends. But most realize that there’s a sly intelligence and a knowing wink to your tastes. Your sense of humor could be called ‘anti-pretentious’—but ironically, that definitely indicates you’re smarter than most.

  3. Bizarre, I would have thought that my humor was much darker than I test said.  I also was judged as an Idiot Savant, Brock. hmmm

  4. I skipped those movie questions myself, since I hadn’t seen most of them (not real big on “funny” movies, myself, since I find that most of them aren’t). Even so, this seems to be pretty much spot-on, and I have to appreciate any test that compares me to Jon Stewart:

       

    the Wit

       

    (52% dark, 30% spontaneous, 5% vulgar)

    your humor style:
    CLEAN | COMPLEX | DARK

    You like things edgy, subtle, and smart. I guess that means you’re probably an intellectual, but don’t take that to mean you’re pretentious. You realize ‘dumb’ can be witty—after all isn’t that the Simpsons’ philosophy?—but rudeness for its own sake, ‘gross-out’ humor and most other things found in a fraternity leave you totally flat.

    I guess you just have a more cerebral approach than most. You have the perfect mindset for a joke writer or staff writer. Your sense of humor takes the most effort to appreciate, but it’s also the best, in my opinion.

    Also, you probably loved the Office. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, check it out here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/comedy/theoffice/.
