The personal attribute I like most about myself is my sense of humor, which runs toward the dark side of Gallows Humor aka Dark Humor, although I adore Dad jokes of the truly groan-worthy type, wordplay and puns, parody, and anything Steven Wright says.
Actually, the more inappropriate and irreverent the humor for the given situation, the more I like it. My favorite inappropriate humor award goes to the Mary Tyler Moore sitcom episode “Laugh for Chuckles” which aired October 25, 1975. If you’ve ever gotten the giggles at a funeral, this four-minute scene is for you.

*”If April showers bring May flowers, what do May flowers bring?” “Pilgrims.”
*”Why do seagulls fly over the ocean?” “Because if they flew over the bay, we’d call them bagels.”
