What is the funniest thing you've witnessed but couldn't laugh outright because it would have...
I was walking across a little foot bridge with a very expensive camera in my hand. I wasn't looking where I was going and ended up missing the bottom step. I was more worried about saving the camera than myself. It wasn't a pretty sight. My boyfriend had to turn away to laugh because he didn't want to seem unconcerned by his hysterical laughter.
I saw a chap dressed as a bottle of beer,in Manchester, last year, in a giant latex suit for the popular product, handing out flyers inviting people to drink it for half price or some similar discount at a local bar. Friends of his saw him, and clearly set out to embarrass him. They eventually pushed him over and roilled him up and down the street. He was trapped in the suit. The police intervened before it got too out of hand - I felt guilty for supressing laughter and not helping stop them.
A month or so ago, after a freeze warning, I was out walking my dog and slipped on some ice on the sidewalk. I got back up, completely disappointed in myself. I think my dog tried not to laugh. But then, as I was standing there, someone else walked by and slipped on the exact same patch of ice that had just humiliated me. I didn't think to warn him, because I was pretty sure he'd seen me fall. He got up slowly, holding his wrist, and shouting, "No! No! No!" And then ran off. I waited until his was gone and then started laughing. I feel bad about that, but it was the funniest thing I've ever seen.
My husband got up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, took an extra step outside our bedroom door and fell down the stairs. Once I made sure he was okay I couldn't hold back the hysterical laughter anymore.
My English teacher decided to have a conference with 60 people in a small room about a book, but no one was taking her seriously. She said, "Ok guys, this is not working. Some people are going to get jipped out of a major grade, so some of you need to leave" when my friend responded with "Nose Goes!" The funny thing was that half of the class actually put their hands on their noses. The teacher was infuriated by this point. We could barely hold back our laughter.
For those who don't know, people say "nose goes" when they are trying to decide who is going to do something. The last person to touch their nose has to do whatever they were talking about.

I thought this was great. In fact, it brought back many fond memories of funny moments and I did write a hub about it. What a great question...I'm still laughing.
I was a bridesmaid at a wedding taking place in the Cathedral the priest was a bit off hand and when it came to the bit ‘do you take …..’ he turned to the groom and said what do you call her nodding towards the bride and he answered “Lee”. The priest then asked, “Is that her proper name?” The groom replied “No it is Lydia Rosa.”
The priest then asks the groom “Do you take Lydia Rosa to be your lawfully wedded wife to which Gez answered, “I do.” The priest then turned to my friend Lee and asked her “What do you call him?” Knowing the response Gez (which is what she called him) got Lee responded "Gerald Albert" to which the priest replied. “What every time you want him you call Gerald Albert?”
I am sure the priest had been drinking and it was probably his sixth or seventh wedding that day but poor old Lee was beside herself. The best man and I were stood behind the bride and groom during this exchange and I could see the best man out of the corner of my eye trying not to laugh. The best man was trying so hard that was shaking and bright red in the face, which unfortunately started me off too.
The more we tried not to laugh the redder we both got and the funnier we both looked. I am sure the giggles were an embarrassed and nervous reaction in both of us to the rude priest and it was the last thing either of us really wanted to do.
Then the groom turned round to see what the muffled snorts and grunts were that were coming from behind him. These sounds were the results of us trying to stifle our giggles and that started him off which then set the bride off.
The congregation could not see our faces so they did not know what was going on all they could see was four backs shaking and convulsing with suppressed laughter.
It was not particularly funny at the time but later we all often laughed about it.
