Last night I had some discussions going about what a good comedy is, what is funny and what is funny to me. It is a well known fact that my humor much differs from that of others. So I figured I watch a comedy that I may like. This time it was "Napoleon Dynomite". I never heard of the film before, but Amazon claimed that it was similiar to the Anchorman, which I liked, and so I watched it.
I liked it. And I liked it a lot. This film was also about losers who don't get life, but it was kind and was actually funny at times. Surely, the film didn't keep me rolling on the floor, but I did laugh a few times. The plot wasn't really there, but it had some nice story elements that I liked. Mainly, the movie brought out positive emotions because it reminded me of high school a lot. I could recognize and remember a lot of characters in the film. To some people I could actually relate. So I was very happy to have seen it.
Yes, the film was very silly and is by no means a cimetographic genious. But it stroke some strings in me and I liked it a lot.
Then I went downstairs and made a joke. The joke is rather offensive to those who value life, America and other animorphic values. So I will put it behind a cut. It's nothing much really. Just an illustraion of my late night cruel humor.
Some girl said that she had been to New York in '99. Then she says that she had been to the top of the World Trade Center. Everyone goes silent for a minute. I turn around and say "Oh, I've been above it. ... in 2004." I got a couple chuckles. That's what I consider funny.
