I laugh, but you don’t. Then what?

My fellow features writer Laura Casey sent me a clip of something today that made her laugh until she almost spit up her lunch. My reaction was to laugh hysterically until people stopped working to see what I was choking on. And that was before I saw the clip.

No, that’s a lie. I laughed at the same thing Laura did. Of course, it’s quite possible we’re strange or on drugs or something.

Of course, I’m one of those people who like to somehow take credit for things other people create by showing them. Like Christopher Columbus took credit for America when, like, he totally didn’t invent America or anything. So I thought this would make me a hit in the newsroom, when people started coming over to my desk so I could re-run what was, in retrospect, really kind of stupid. I mean, it wasn’t like Caddyshack funny or anything. But It might’ve been, at the very least, Chad Vader funny.

Except the people huddled around my desk didn’t really laugh. I played it again. Same thing. Don’t you hate when that happens – you know, when you’re surrounded by people who completely lack a good sense of humor?

Or maybe it’s just me?

Anyway. I thought this was funny. Plus I have nothing else to blog about today. or maybe I ate too much at lunch and just feel like a nap.

    I laughed harder at the old lady crashes down escalator. What does that say about me?
