I don't find most of them funny either. I like spontaneous fun and jokes, for example among colleagues. That's also why I'm not a real fan of pre-fabricated cabaret or stand-up comedy.

Btw, plural is usually "the Dutch" (masculine and feminine). You can also say Dutchies. :P

Or cloggies as the Brits call them. Käsekopfen as they are known to Germans and Austrians.

Kaaskop meaning "cheese-head" (Käsekopf in German); is common in Flanders (also Kees, as the Dutch first name) and Germany, referring both to the cheese produced in the Netherlands, as well as an insinuation that they are a stubborn and inconsiderate people.¨

Some are funny, but I rarely literally laugh at them. Sometimes I do though.

Interesting that Chris doesn't like stand up comedy.

It is not that memes per se are all awful. Some are even funny - but only the fist time you see them. Same goes for animated gifs. It's not so cool when you see them for the n-th time. It is like hearing a given joke over and over.

I see lots and lots in my Facebook news feed. I think some of them are really clever. Especially political satire.

I think there is noting wrong to post jokes here, except those that are offensive or that can be embarassing if you browse SSC at work/college or with your family (especially pics/vids).

There's plenty of websites that allow you to enjoy yourself with your hands 24/7
But you know that are porn and you visit them only if there is absolutely no one around.
But porn concealed in normal website can be very embarassing

Exactly. Some are ok, especially witty ones about current affairs. But there are so many of them and some of them think a joke becomes funny or stays funny just because it is a so called running gag.

I remember once I was looking at photos of the Stockholm metro on here and half way through there was a photo of a man with his hands up his arse making it as wide as possible.

Two people saw it.

I was watching one of the gangnam style countdown (to 1 billion) websites. After it reached one billion I wanted to check the site again. It suddenly directed me to a porn site. Glad no one was watching at that moment (I was in a pretty busy room)

I don't care about neighbours though; they don't have to watch my PC.

Try to download some movie with Emule and 9 times out of 10 the filename and the content don't match very well.
Father: "Kids, let's watch this Walt Disney cartoon".
Few seconds later: "Sorry, there's a problem I must shut down the player!"


BTW, an acquiatance of mine, on the 1st April, setted a gay porn site as homepage in every PC at work.

Once I was looking for an Italian furniture company named "bocchini", then my sister looked at the screen while lots of porn sites were listed by google... "bocchini" in Italian means blowjobs...
