    Have you ever met someone that made a little laugh after saying the most common of things without it being funny ? Is this just a nervous thing they do ?

    Don't worry. They're just on prozac.

    What's even worse is they say a bad joke and then laugh at themselves, while you just stand there, blankfaced. Then they tell another one and do the same thing, like they don't get that joke + no laugh = bad.

    Yes, but she had downs syndrome. It wasn't funny.
  11. You laughed before saying something common...
    doesn't count.


    The worst, though is when a 'professional' comedian does it. Very poor form. :spit:

    Sometimes I do that. But usually I find it funny for a particular reason, i.e. it relates to something I was just doing or thinking of, or some form of inside joke only my friends and I would get, but I just happen to be the only one there.

    I agree. Comedians that laugh at their own jokes drive me crazy. Let the audience laugh for you; Dennis Miller is a good example.

    I always like(d) Mitch Hedberg's laugh. Sometimes it really added to the joke, and other times it was the joke.

    I have a family member that does that and it drives me insane. He laughs at everything he says. Everything. I've no idea what that's all about, but I'm quite sure it ain't normal and it's incredibly rough to be around. Ya gotta just kinda look at them while they're laughing at nothing. I'm glad at least to know that other people do the same thing - unless you're all talking about this same guy. Mr. Metal lives around my parts so he might actually BE talking about the same guy. :eek:

    It's a nervous tic. I used to do it when I was nervous, until someone pointed it out to me. I didn't even realize it.

    Instead of getting annoyed, do the person a favor and tell them about it, let them know it's annoying. Chances are they will appreciate you for your honesty and will try to break the habit.

    It's odd that most of you seem to be so nice and helpful and friendly and caring, but then jump at the chance to ostracize someone for some slightly neurotic behavior.

    I don't really blame you though, it is annoying.

    +1. The best way to do this is to hand the guy a stick of deodorant and tell him that his sense of humor stinks. ;)
