    Is there a forum where hubbers can interact with others on humorous subjects, and ask for comments about the quality of humorous pieces already written,  please?

      I love humour, I use it all the time to soften the sting in the tail;  trouble is you can only use humour where you know the other guy is going to appriciate it.

      I have discovered that on the Internet and in sites like this there are an awful lot of people who  a) Don't have a sense of humour.  And b) take a lot of things said in jest personally !

      Me; I'm pretty thick skinned and tend to give as good as I get; but I do get some stick for my evil sense of humour.

      But if you want a humourous Hub count me in.

        Yep, it's difficult to convey humor on the internet.  It's really easy for people to misinterpret sarcasm for being an ass.  I get that a lot.  Maybe I just really am an ass and only think I'm funny.  Who knows?

    What if we her, who are interested in humor, got together and took it further? What if we agree to criticise each others work, inorder to improve it?

    Am I being extreme? :-)

    1. calpol25 profile image67
      calpol25posted 8 years agoin reply to this

      your not being extreme smile

      The best thing about writing is that we get critics because they tell us if were wrong or right, it might not be what we want to hear but it helps us in other ways such as topics to avoid or research more lol

        De Greekposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        I personally welcome all input . It is my choice to accept criticism or not, though if it too harsh I tend to cry myself to sleep... :-))

            Naaturally I was joking when I said that about crying  ... :-))

            I write mainly for myself, but if someone says soemthing nice about it, it is always pleasant.

            Let's hope others will be intersted in this as well, so that we can get something intersting going here :-))

    A completely inebriated man was stumbling down the street with one foot on the curb and one foot in the gutter. A cop pulled up and said, "I've got to take you in, pal. You're obviously drunk."

    Our wasted friend asked, "Officer, are ya absolutely sure I'm drunk?"

    "Yeah, buddy, I'm sure," said the copper. "Let's go."

    Breathing a sigh of relief, the wino said, "Thank goodness, I thought I was crippled

    HOW TO CALL THE POLICE WHEN YOU'RE OLD AND DON'T MOVE FAST ANYMORE.

    George Phillips, an elderly man, from Meridian, Mississippi, was going up to bed, when his wife told him that he'd left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window. George opened the back door to go turn off the light but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things.

    He phoned the police, who asked "Is someone in your house?"
    He said "No," but some people are breaking into my garden shed and stealing from me.

    Then the police dispatcher said "All patrols are busy. You should lock your doors and an officer will be along when one is available."

    George said, "Okay."

    He hung up the phone and counted to 30. Then he phoned the police again.

    "Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people stealing things from my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them now because I just shot and killed them both, the dogs are eating them right now." and he hung up.

    Within five minutes, six Police Cars, a SWAT Team, a Helicopter, two Fire Trucks, a Paramedic, and an Ambulance showed up at the Phillips' residence, and caught the burglars red-handed.

    One of the Policemen said to George, "I thought you said that you'd shot them!"
    George said, "I thought you said there was nobody available!"

    (True Story) I LOVE IT! Don't mess with old people.

    Ten Ways to Piss off a Pagan:

    10. Ask them if they are Satan worshipers.
    9. Be considerate, rearrange their altar so it looks neat.
    8. Blow out their altar candle if it is daylight and say, "No need to waste a good candle!"
    7. Pick up their gems for a closer look.
    6. Witness to them about the "true religion."
    5. Sharpen their dull black-handled knife.
    4. Untie the knots in their cord.
    3. Take hold of their jewelry for a closer look.
    2. Play card games with their tarot cards.
    1. Ask them if they are Satan worshipers.

    I just found this, thought it was funny. big_smile

          Oh I have been accused of so many things. I don't have an alter, but my kids visited and rearranged my whole kitchen. Does that count? I can't reach anything. I am the shortest in the family. And the only one who uses the kitchen.

            Pani Midnyte Odinposted 8 years agoin reply to this

            A kitchen definitely counts as an altar. You could be considered a "Kitchen Witch" if your kitchen is your altar.

            People rearranging my kitchen would make me a tad upset too lol
