How to Suck the Life Out of a Joke

Setting: Phone call between my sister and me.

Sister: Did you receive that last text message I sent you?

Me: Yeah I did. It was a joke or something…

Sister: Yeah it was…Why didn’t you reply back?

Me: Umm…Do I have to?

Sister: Well how am I supposed to know that you read it?

Me: Well it’s a joke; I just read it and laughed…

Sister: You should’ve replied back so I know you received it…

Me: Aha…All right, I’ll just send a “Haha” next time…

Sister: Mhmm…Okay…

    That's funny :-D

    Love real life comedy.

    Bet you had a better laugh out of it than the joke you've received.

    Its worse when people are overly-hyped to tell you a joke that they rush through it. When the punchline comes minutes later, they are on the floor laughing while you akwardly stare at the people you call your friends.

    Tipping daisies .. it makes us the only three people to have the song (including Bader).

    eshda3wa: Lol I know! :P~

    touche: Well it was more of shake-of-the-head-and-chuckle combo than a laugh! :P

    K: But hey you GOTTA admit that that happened to you at least once! Sometimes I can't help but let out a giggle (although I know that it doesn't help make my joke to come as funny as it should be, you know...you should either tell a joke in that laidback or excited tone...damn, I hate putting a lot of crap in paranthesis...anyway...) whenever I say a really funny joke/story :)

    ony: Lol true :P I don't know, I guess it depends on the person. Personally, I send "haha's" to my dad and I reply back to my friends' nasty SMSed jokes with either a "LOL!" ('one of those rare text jokes that actually make you laugh out loud) or "Araf!" if it is literally a nasty SMS :P

    K: Haha :P Well if it IS what I think it is I guess we'll all better be quiet...invisble squiggles! :P~

    1001: Heh, well it's not "3aib" but some people, well, I expect them to understand my unresponsive nature! I usually respond to my parents. My dad often forwards jokes to me, think "Kan fee 9a3eedi..." I just cannot NOT reply back with a ":P" or "Haha"

    navy: I just find it a bit of a drag! So I read a joke, I smile and if it's really funny, I chuckle. But then that's it! Moment's over!

    hazolat: Lol la wallah :P~
