Even People Who Teach Tenth Graders How to Write Personal Letters Can Be Jon Stewart Funny!

Perhaps it's because I am writing lesson plans right now, but Jim just gave me the perfect excuse to quit working!!! Behold, the 3 Variable Funny Test.


the Wit
(80% dark, 19% spontaneous, 5% vulgar)
your humor style:
CLEAN COMPLEX DARK


You like things edgy, subtle, and smart. I guess that means you're probably an intellectual, but don't take that to mean pretentious. You realize 'dumb' can be witty--after all isn't that the Simpsons' philosophy?--but rudeness for its own sake, 'gross-out' humor and most other things found in a fraternity leave you totally flat.

I guess you just have a more cerebral approach than most. You have the perfect mindset for a joke writer or staff writer.

Your sense of humor takes the most thought to appreciate, but it's also the best, in my opinion.

PEOPLE LIKE YOU: Jon Stewart - Woody Allen - Ricky Gervais

Do share your results.

Hey we're cousins or something. It reminds of that old Replacments song... "You be me for a while and I'll be you..."

...and the fact that you just mentioned The Replacements just proves your cousin point!

Mine were almost exactly the same. I was thrilled to be put in the same category as Jon Stewart!

I am clean/complex/light. I am in the same class as Conan O'Brien and Ashton Kutcher. I am not sure I enjoy being with Ashton.

I will ignore the "being with Ashton" comment, but will say that something about you is very "Dude, Where's My Car?'.

Clean, complex, and dark - just like yours. (Was there any doubt?)

I feel witty. Oh, SO witty.
