Time for another rant
As you can tell from the above Halo video, some people have too much time on their hands. I would normally say people like me, but who am I kidding, I’m in the Fire in the Night Internship……. other than sunday, I haven’t got much time. But I do have people from all over the place with…. uhm….. different kinds of humor. Amazingly, just because a joke is funny in the US doesn’t mean it makes for much hilarity in the mind of a foreigner. For some reason, the American and the Aussie found the phrase “Dutch Cheese” really funny….. and the Dutch guy didn’t. I wish I knew what it was about humor, but it just doesn’t translate really well. Take this quote from an American film translated into Japanese: “Ya-ha, Evil Spiderwoman, I have now captured you by the short rabbits and can now deliver you to your doctor for a thorough extermination.” Huh? Just from that, you can’t tell what movie it is, or even what they meant to say. It’s times like that that make me appreciate the 3 Stooges a little more. No words, just “comedy.” Jay Leno said that one of the main differences between men and women is that men find the three stooges funny and women don’t… I think it’s more of a personality thing. Myself, I find a guy slapping another guy over the head to the sound of crunching celery really funny…….. a somewhat more intelligent person probably wouldn’t. I will never really understand why funny stuff is funny.
