Is there more to life than quick wit & innuendo?

That is the thought that has been running through my mind lately...........say it a'int so.

I speak almost entirely through sarcasm, witty comments, sexual innuendo and puns. I am able to carry on a conversation, but rarely does the aforementioned list escape entry into the discussion. I come by this trait honestly. My father is a peanut gallery expert. He works more in pun and corny jokes than I do, but I learned the ropes from my old man without a doubt. Now that I am turning into him more and more it is pretty surreal to be in a group gathering with him and see us one-upping eachother from across the room. Rudely interrupting perfectly normal conversations with our interjections of "humor".

As I have matured (laughable) or become older I have started to realize that maybe there is more to life than being the funny guy. I have held positions of leadership throughout my life in and out of work and I am able to temper down this behavior if needed, but I really prefer to be able to let loose. I have somehow avoided any lawsuits or pummelings so far in my life, but sometimes I can tell that my incessant "head in the gutter" status does wear people down.

Of course, now I have kids and I have learned that kids don't get sarcasm. They just stare blankly at you or run to another room. Not really a strong relationship builder.

So basically that leaves my co-workers, friends that I rarely get to see, and the people on this message board to bear the brunt of my behavior. My wife tolerates the wit, but the innuendo has been squashed. Basically I am here to declare that I am officially going to declare 2009 and the future as "My half-a$$ed attempt to tone down my over-the-top overt sexual innuendo and smart a$$ comments."

Wish me luck.

It is always great to find someone to have a 'Seinfeld' conversation with. Unfortunately there are fewer and fewer people who are able to have these coversations (at least the people I go to college with).

Not enough people get the humor in discussing if Superman has a great sense of humor. Everything else he has is super, why not sense of humor? Because the effect of the yellow sun of the earth didn't change that part of his brain?

Humor is one of the better parts of humanity.... It helps us to keep our sanity. What other living thing can make a joke? Does God have a sense of humor??

Just remember laughing with them is what is most important!

AND the ability to LAUGH AT YOURSELF!!!

The day your children learn that, they are ready to be fed to the wolves!  Tongue out

In my humble opinion...

People usually deserve everything you can say about them! Joking with someone or laughing about situations in life is what makes it more interesting.  Just remember laughing with them is what is most important!

I am sure Maestro has some innuendo that could follow that comment... I however will refrain.

I too will let PK slide this time.  I am respecting my elders today.

It must be a trait that I acquired while watching Seinfeld...eh Bob Cobb?

For a few years after college most of my friends and I spoke mostly through Seinfeld references.  If you didn't know the show you were hopelessly lost in any of our conversations.

Let me check really quick.  Umm.  big bumps on chest.  Have an innie, not an outie.  Yep, still female.

Maestro-

I can hardly keep myself from making those type of comments as well. The people around me get tired of the comments that I make. They often ask me if I am joking or not...which only adds to my pleasure in doing so. Some call it a dry, or sarcastic type of humor, but that is the kind of guy that I am...so they have to deal with it!

Often I try to be witty...it doesn't always work out though...

Innuendo is something that I could not live without, and it is to the dismay of my friends, etc.

If I were to take out the smart a$$ comments and innuendo I am not sure I would even speak...

Panzer, now it all makes sense.  You are a professor.  I thought you sounded like an intellectual in your posts.  That is great.  My favorite Aunt is a professor at Akron and has been for a couple of decades.  She is a great lady as I am sure you are too.  I think you are a female......is that correct?  If not please forgive me for the error, but for some reason I remember reading that once.
