I actually had one of those. My toddler daughter was running straight off some cement steps. Without thinking I instantly reached out (with my left hand!) and grabbed her by the ankle. Pure reflex.

I've had a couple of those that amazed my wife, although none as serious as some of those, and quite frankly I can't remember the specifics, only that they happened.

That car one crashing through the window? Holy shit. Dads lie awake at night afraid of something like that happening. Kudos to dad for the potentially life saving reaction. My balls literally shriveled up into raisins just watching that. I would buy that guy a beer if he was in front of me. He's a damn hero. The rest are heroes too, but a bump on the noggin from a fall is a slightly different scale than being crushed by 2000+ lbs of speeding metal, glass and plastic.

Time and tide melt the snowman.

There are worlds out there where the sky is burning, where the sea's asleep and the rivers dream, people made of smoke and cities made of song. Somewhere there's danger, somewhere there's injustice and somewhere else the tea is getting cold. Come on, Ace, we've got work to do.

Without context that could be literally anything at all.

If we presume the context, it's mildly amusing. I mean, there is a meme picture that covers this nicely, but barring clever meme text, it's just not that funny. And I'm the final arbiter on what's funny, of course.

Well yeah, I alluded to exactly that. In a vacuum that pic contains little humor value as well. I mean, it's not "unfunny" exactly, it's just not funny. Now if you were to write something clever over it, we could talk. Of course 99% of the attempts to make this meme funny are also not funny.

If the sole purpose was to note that the idea existed in the before time, even with a nearly parallel picture, but with genders reversed, ok. Noted. I believe I'm well known for turning a critical eye on attempts at humour, and this is just one of those times. Whether you think that makes me an idiot or incredibly charming is neither here nor there. :wink:

Somewhat related, I think the modern pic could achieve the same effect without having the dude be so gross about it. We get it, you're attracted to another woman as you walk with your partner/date/sister/whatever. Maybe he should be rubbing his crotch to really make sure we understand what's going on.

Good point. Now if you make it because he thinks it'll look good with purple mesh t-shirt tonight at the club, then that might bump it up a notch in humor value. Of course it would seriously depend on the wording. Similarly, fart jokes are hilarious if constructed well.

I'm bemused to note that I never really noticed the guys face. The look on the woman's face demanded my attention.

Sure, but I'm not asking for subtle. I'm asking for less than cartoonish. Since I think it's clear that lecherousness can fall on a scale, I think this level is cartoonishly exaggerated. I'm not saying that people don't exist like the guy in the photo or worse, I just think it's far too easy a target, which reduces the humour value for me. He's practically a caricature of a gross, lecherous, slimeball. There is plenty of room to find humour in males being caught looking at females that doesn't paint them as slimeballs.

These are my impressions and observations. I'm not demanding that everything match my exacting but undefined requirements. I'm saying not matching those exacting but undefined requirements are going to result in a less than enthusiastic response. :D

Like I said, it's not the subject matter that's the issue, it's the delivery. (fart jokes, how do they work?).

It's not like I'm particularly emotionally invested in these observations. I like laughing. I love laughing. When things fall short (for me), I'm disappointed, but not outraged or saddened. :snooty:

Dude, that is what I do. Unless they're funny of course. :wink:

The truth is that these comments come from a place that spends a lot of time looking for funny. I think about funny a lot. Not in the "I need a good standup routine" way that a comedian might, but in a "why do I find this funny or not? What is the nature of funny?" sort of way.

That sounds far too serious and ivory tower-y. It's more like "I like this food, I don't like that food. Why?" It's less "everyone sucks for liking food I don't" and more "there's too much oregano". That some people like oregano is not an issue.

To make amends, here. It's not something that I find incredibly hilarious or anything, but I like it because it's simple, it involves word play, and it lacks any political or controversial topics meaning it might appeal to everyone and anyone.

If you don't find it funny, fuck you. You're a bad person.

I'm torn on whether memes count as silly pics. The silly part is really about the text in the context of the picture. The pics themselves aren't always silly.

See? This is what I do.

I tend to like my humour racier/edgier (which are harder to pull off imo), but I can appreciate a good pun or word play or whatever. It helps in this case that my house is filled with crocs and that I loathe crocs.

Specifically, it's from a 1950 issue of Leatherneck magazine.

The original joke is obviously that Marines are sexier than sailors. Currently, it illustrates the adage that everything old is new again. Of course, if you prefer that idea in meme form, then reddit has your back:

I thought it was officer vs enlisted, but then I'm not ex-military and don't actually register rank and/or branches without actively paying attention to that particular detail. Black and white pictures just makes it worse.

+1. So much so that I knew it was photophopped because OO found out and told me.

Still, it's a funny picture.
