    A good sense of humor pays to make friends how funny should one be to have a social life? Be it at school or  with people in your community.

    I think it's more about being relaxed and not taking everything so seriously than being a jokester. Most people get annoyed by someone who tries too hard to be funny! smile

    keep it simple and enjoyable for the listener.
    use every day facts that include nothing about those that are listening.
    when expressing your laughter, always display genuine social etiquette to the observers.
    and never try to explain the joke or humor to those who do not immediate laugh, then when they finally get it, they will come back an explain it to you.
    the best value provided by a good sense of humor is the shorter the encounter, the better.
    Remember, it is better if the joke is on you and not the listener.
    Laughter is the sunshine that grows the friendship garden.

    Being witty without being sarcastic, and one does not have to be funny to have a good social life. 
    You just have to be a good listener and genuine.
    Just remember, Laughter is the music of the soul.
