Weirdly Funny

Okay, I am going to admit something here that probably makes me about the meanest person in the world. I sometimes find it funny when other people get hurt. I love those videos on tv that show the dad getting hit in the groin with the bat. I laugh hard when someone stubs their toe (but I say bad words when I do it!). And once my husband bumped his head on the cabinet door and I giggled a little. It is weird, I know, but I just can’t help it. I don’t know if it is nervous laughter or if I just truly find joy in other people’s physical pain. 

The other day I was driving home from a friend’s house and along the other side of the road this teenage boy was riding a bike. He was showing off and not paying attention and all the sudden… WHAM! He hit the curb and went flying end over end and landed on his back. I almost wrecked I laughed so hard. It is one of my little quirks that just baffles me. Generally I am a very caring and compassionate person, but put me in front of someone who inflicts accidental physical pain upon themselves and I can’t contain my laughter. 

Does this make me weird? What is something that you find humorous that is usually not humorous to others?

    JoshuaDelVecchio.Since nobody likes you I'll post something. Two great bike wrecks I could watch over and over again are the paper boy in While you were sleeping and Shia Lebouf in Transformers, it felt awesome. If it's funny, it's funny period. I watched a friend of mine accidentally take a spill from a golf cart going full speed. He did a full front flip and landed at the base of tree. I was crying the whole time I was trying to turn the cart around to go check on him. I mean I made sure he was alright, but it was too funny to not laugh.

    Joshua, you are weird… that is why we are friends. 🙂 I would pay good money to have seen that golf cart accident.

People make the same dorky face and their arms start going in a windmill sort of way and then they put their arms out to the sides to steady their balance and then wam! right on their butt hahaha!!!
