30 Funny Jokes That People Misunderstood So Bad That The Response Was Funnier Than The Joke

Jokes are meant to make people laugh and are not meant to be taken seriously. Whenever you make a really good gag, you expect that people will get it. Well, because one doesn’t have to be a genius to understand hilarious irony or sarcasm, right?

Amusingly, there are some people who completely missed the point of a gag by taking things too literally. We’ve all missed some clever puns or pranks at some point in our lives, but you probably didn’t have it as bad as these unfortunate people. And what makes it worse for these people is that their slow-wittedness is forever documented on the internet. So, you can just imagine the humiliation that will haunt them for eternity.

We’re all aware that the internet is filled with timely satires, clever puns, humorous memes and more. Some of these are really funny and are worth sharing while others just don’t make any sense. Most of the time, the success depends on how it was understood. Of course, the expected response is laughter. However, even a simple play on words can go so far over other people’s heads. Thus making it seem unfunny because they’ve taken it too seriously.
