have you noticed? re: "funny hubs"

    Here's a random musing:

    Do people rate some of your hubs as funny that are not meant to be funny and truly aren't funny? I'm wondering if this is due to a language barrier or what?  For example, why would someone rate a recipe hub this way? It's bizarre...or dare I say, "funny"?

    Oh, well...as long as I continue make money from these "funny" hubs, I'm ok with it!! big_smile

    I think sometimes people may click all of them or click funny for fun.

    I haven't had that but it would be frustrating if I saw that happening.

    I will admit that I once clicked "funny" for a hub that was meant in all seriousness.  It's just that it was so ridiculously irrational that it made me laugh.  So, to me, it was funny.

    I like to think that most of my hubs are written in a funny way, but I am yet to have someone click funny.
