    Obviously some sort of aberrant growth in his head-bone.

    I worked with a woman with NO sense of humour WHATEVER. SHe would laugh when other people laughed, and you would see her eyes darting about as she wondered what had set the rest of us into paroxysms. It’s true that false smiles/laughter do not reach the eyes.
    I felt sorry for her.

    What… the women can’t see that the TV’s on?


    Yeah, Dale
    is a crack-up.
    In fact, he and Burl are a regular Floral and Hardees.
    Or is it Abie and Cordello….
    _you_know…
    ….who did that great bit about who’s on First Street?


    The Find-It may be a star …. but you don’t need to look for it on Hollywood Boulevard…. and it won’t be inscribed “Burl Penny.”

    Pacopuddy… me too.

    The one I worked with didn’t bother looking puzzled about the humor…
    she just stared blankly with a vacant smile on her lips, and NOTHING in her eyes.


    And if someone actually told her a joke, directly, sometimes after the punchline, she’d blink expectantly, and say something like
    “um… haha.. er… and then what happened?”


    I can still picture her bright red lipstick in that meaningless smile.

    It’s easy for Burl. He has three working synapses; one for food, one for survival and one for laughter. His all-time favourite jokes are f**t jokes, preferably with a live demonstration.
    Wgich leads us always back to Gov. Lepetomane and Alex Karras’ (Mongo) incredibly sustained “high note” that can put most people of male persuasion on the floor with laughter.

    The Penny’s fit right in with Letterman… Suggest they switch to Leno…. Catch “Headlines” for some good laughs…. ! ! !

    “Dale must have hit Burl’s funnybone”………bad aim?
    .
    I would suggest a higher target area…..here…let e do it.

    Last time I watched live late night TV was before Jonny Carson retired (when choice was limited etc). If I watch any TV after dark it has to be something really funny (like old Cheers, Bewitched or new Simpsons, Family Guy) more to my liking.
    .
    I can’t remember knowing anyone without a sense of humor; I think I would have just avoided them.

    gasp
    My humourless colleague had bright red lipstick, too – and thin lips. Your workmate wasn’y Australian, was she?

    She would also say things like “But horses can’t talk” (obviously never watched Mr Ed), and ’Why would a chicken want to get to the other side? Oh! Is that where her eggs were?"
    She sucked the joy out of everything.

    Anhedonia is the inability to enjoy ones self or understand why everyone else is having a good time. I knew someone that would have a happiness hangover if they enjoyed themselves the day before.
