I've found some humour is like food. At first it feels alien, but as you expose yourself to it, it kinda rubs off on you, and you get an "acquired taste" of sorts, later finding it entertaining. ;)

Very fitting that this would end saying comedy is like cancer because this video I think gave me a little cancer. I feel like I was stripped a little piece of comedic talent. I have the same feeling right now after I watch that horror movie The Ring and they ended it by playing that video tape we all thought of s*** Doom and Gloom dread we're going to die and we felt like old now we just sold out to the dark Forces and they're going to come eat us a****** first or something. I feel like I was intellectually raped just a little. Dude this was terrible I mean it was so difficult to listen to. The only joke you had was a slam on Louis C K and it wasn't even that good. And anybody that I know that could spin 11 minutes and 28 seconds with a voice that monotone the entire time at the least is not humorous at the most is a psychopath. Man I just don't get how so many people think this is a thumbs-up situation. If a person doesn't have freedom of expression they don't have freedom. I mean I can't even think of something funny to say this s*** suck the fun out of the room more than a guy who comes to a party with his brother the cop and uniform man I got a painting in the neck my eyeball hurts. Anybody is still reading and wants to help themselves be funnier just go spend a couple hours listening to Richard jeni the greatest there ever was Greg Giraldo, George Carlin, Louis CK, Dana Gould. Go watch I guess even Joe Rogan and Bill Burr who both have Jungle Fever and can't wait to sell out but they're still funny as hell . He'll turn on the TV and watch some Craig Ferguson and some Conan on TV. Better yet actually live a little go associate with funny people that are fun to be around care less what people think and try and be a chameleon. I mean damn this video makes me want to sell life insurance yes that would be a much better use of my time or maybe be an accountant to work some other clerical position. Ah man forget it I can't see how anybody would have built this I mean dude thanks for putting it out there thanks for putting this together I'm sure you put a lot into it but I am so grateful to have lived through the 80s and so embarrassed and ashamed that I didn't do more to prevent this stupid humorless offended generation from happening. Wow we shall all fall in line comrade joke only approved by commissioner and State. Damn I see why all these young people want marijuana to be legal, they want to feel just for a little while like normal people feel all the time when they're just happy. Wow all that was missing in this video was a constant stream of that background psycho movie music like Alfred Hitchcock used. Yeah peace out I won't respond feel free to call me whatever I got to take a shower. No even worse I got to take a s*** after this I got it I mean what the heck I thought this was America man?

"Of all people you'd think you'd know the damage of a misplaced nut." I just spit up a little. Think I should've swallowed though, prolly not as risky.

You know, I'm just listening the video, enjoying while I get shit done. I hear him say, "Now for the next joke" and an ad comes on without me knowing. Some girl starts talking about engineering and I'm wondering what kind of joke this is. Then I start laughing my ass off. I thought he put an ad in the video just to make fun of Grand Canyon University.

So, like, is this why it's challenging to make me laugh? I like to joke around so I'm always anticipating the punchline. If another person has the exact same sense of humor as I do, I usually don't laugh because we basically tell the same jokes.😂

Sadly, my idea of comedy has devolved to the point where I lose my shit to a poorly photoshopped, pixelated picture of a cgi Hagrid submerged to his neck in water with a massive bottom text caption reading: WATER

Arguably cancer is preferable to bad comedy, because if you give up on cancer at least you won't have to live with never getting laid. I speak from experience.
