I have to contend with this from two people in our family, my 1/2 brother and my SIL (wife's sister). I seriously doubt if either of them know anyone who is humorous, perhaps, they think that Seniors that have a "sense of humor" should grow up. Don't know, but I've been humorous most of my life. I will say something, jokingly, to my SIL and she will say "CODY!!". I have to immediately say "I was only joking". My wife always tells me just how serious her sister is and has been for years upon years. Way, way before I even met my wife. I firmly believe that I'm the only humorous person my SIL knows. She also sometimes thinks I'm rude and obnoxious, of which neither wife or I see that. All my wife says is, "with Cody, never a dull moment in our household." My 1/2 brother is pretty much the same way. Perhaps that's the reason we don't talk to each other but just a few times a year. He doesn't understand my personality and I don't understand his. Not talking to each other much, really helps when we do talk to each other. Wife and I absolutely love good stand-up comedy, whereas there are those that dislike it altogether. We love watching Jeff Durham and I use to watch the George Lopez Show quite often. Don't bother us if race, or whatever, is put into the comedy. It's all comedy!! So, do you know anyone where a joke will go right over their head? Or, you tell them a joke and they will say "that was rude" or "you're being very obnoxious and arrogant".
