Humor

Was over at The Secret Government Eggo Plot just now and took the following test (after reading the current post about American Idol - it's a hoot so you go read it too, ok?)

This is one of those quiz things that's astonishingly accurate about me for such a short list of quesions.

I wish blogger had an "under the cut" feature - this is kind of long. Since it is, I won't post more 'til later.

Enjoy!

The Wit
your humor style:
CLEAN | COMPLEX | DARK



You like things edgy, subtle, and smart. I guess that means you're probably an intellectual, but don't take that to mean pretentious. You realize 'dumb' can be witty--after all isn't that the Simpsons' philosophy?--but rudeness for its own sake, 'gross-out' humor and most other things found in a fraternity leave you totally flat.

I guess you just have a more cerebral approach than most. You have the perfect mindset for a joke writer or staff writer.

Your sense of humor takes the most thought to appreciate, but it's also the best, in my opinion.

You probably loved the Office. If you don't know what I'm

I scored the same as you on the humor test. Why am I not surprised? I bet a lot of AWers do, too.

Hmmm... it's a small world. I'm professionally connected to the folks who designed that test - in a bizarre, unbloggy way. If feels odd to find it here - don't know why, other than I'm always amazed at just how small the world really is.

I'm a ham, btw. I don't remember the breakdown, except I scored over 95% on dark and I'm supposed to be the life of the party - which I NEVER am.

Haha. I was "The Wit" also.

There's always the quote of the day, aston - that's new everyday!

RL has been a real blogkiller - I had plans to blog a few times last week, obviously that didn't work out too well.

I am now trying to think of an AW Monday Meme on 4 hrs of sleep...I predict short and slightly inchoate.

(I like that word)

Oh, sure, I'm the outcast at being "The Cutting Edge"... I didn't want to be in your clique anyway.

hrumph.

harrumph, too.

I wish Blogger let you edit your comments. Or do they?

It kept timing out on me and I couldn't complete it.

Pretty sure I don't have a sense of humour anyway.

And on a totally random tangent. I did say I'd let you know when I updated my cube farm pictures.
So here they are.
And if you feel like adding some random things the "Everything I know I learnt from..." section of the site is now a wiki.

Dawno said...

Hi Andy, it's great to see you again! I'll be wandering over later, thanks for the note.
