My pets make me laugh all the time. They do such silly things. they are a constant joy. My favorite funny movies are Young Frankenstein, Some like it Hot and Arsenic and Old Lace. Not crazy for jokes. A lot of times I don't get them. but mostly the one's I'm told are about me being dumb. When I really need to cheer myself up I try to do something nice for someone else. Like visit the nursing home and bring some candies. Candy always gets people talking. They tell me about what used to be their favorite and that usually leads them into telling me stories about their childhood. But if I'm still feeling really sad Nathan will pop in a musical like Mary Poppins or Sound of Music. It's hard not to sing along and smile.
Wow, it's great to 'meet' someone who likes some of the older movies. So few people I've met even know what the heck Arsenic and Old Lace IS. LOL
People using 'jokes' to put you down are just putting you down. My ex-husband used to do that as did my mother. I didn't find them funny either and I believed for a long time that I just didn't have a sense of humor (because they told me so). I've since learned I love to laugh at myself (when I'm doing the joke) and make my friends laugh all the time, etc.
How lovely that you take those candies in and get them talking.
Yup, Mary Poppins and Sound of Music would do the trick.

my favorite comedies are the old ones with lucille ball, bob hope and danny kaye. they just don't make them like that any more. the long long trailer. the court jester. and what's the one where bob hope plays the dentist? i googled it, the paleface. fancy pants. to name a few. lol
