    Holy crap is that awful, and not in the way I think you intended...

    How would you even get a diamond ring inside a pop tart?

    And also, low blood-sugar doesn't really work that way.

    I get the joke!

    It's one thing to abbreviate half the words you use online, but if you are a bad speller, it's even worse! :rofl: Love the youtube comments...the joke has gone over so many people's heads! :lol:

    I don't get it, what is the joke? I mean, I found it funny because I am odd like that but I don't see any hidden joke in there other than the play on text speak and how children write these days and the overly dramatic story telling.

    huss band? :D

    It's like a Saturday Night Live parody that makes fun of people who not only have no shame in being lazy and/or illiterate...but seemingly take pride in that as well. (Jokes are so much funnier when you have to examine and explain them...:lol: "Why would the chicken even be crossing a road? Wouldn't they be penned up in a cage? Why would you even care about the travel patterns of a chicken, anyway? And shouldn't we be more concerned about the safety of an animal near a roadway? How is this a source of humour when an animal could be killed by oncoming motorists?" :p)

    I had a friend who said that he didn't see what was funny about Lucille Ball. (Yes, I did check his pulse! :D)

    Well, I don't think I've ever laughed at Lucille Ball. I did not find her brand of humor funny. The awful laughtrack ruined it for me, as it does for most 'plausibly live' shows. I was watching some Facts Of Life oldies and the laughtrack was so bothersome I just stopped watching. (One was a Geri Jewell episode, and the laughtrack just killed it, because she wasn't really funny though sometimes she made me smirk or chortle, but to hear an uproarious laugh at her iffy jokes was awful). Chelsea Lately did a TFOL reunion sketch which was hilarious. haha

    And I also don't get the joke, still. Unless it's not a 'joke' but a commentary of how illiterate people are and that's supposed to be funny.

    No one said low blood sugar isn't dangerous. But a person does not go from 'with it' to falling over within a few minutes because they didn't eat a Poptart. Well, maybe if they just bolused a crazy amount of insulin into their body.

    Are we talking about a youtube cartoon, or did somebody link to a documentary about insulin that I missed?? :lol:

    What's so :lol: ? I guess I don't understand your humor... sigh. But that was obvious anyway since you find Lucille Ball funny and LOL worthy.

    Who is talking about a 'youtube cartoon', or is that part of your :lol: and you find the thought of a yt cartoon or documentary about insulin hilarious? Strange. One of my parents has had insulin dependent diabetes for 60 years and I don't really find laughing about insulin/hypoglycemia appropriate having seen my parent on the floor or shocky from hypoglycemia. But different strokes, man. It's all good. Have a great one.

    I found it stupid (or as my kids would type it stoopid) and not entertaining at all. However, I always found something that made me laugh when I watched I Love Lucy back in it's day. Now when I occassionally come across it, I still smile at the silly antics. My kids don't quite get it because it IS a different kind of comedy. Given what I've heard on the comedy channel at times -- well let's just say I don't find most of it funny at all including the use of crude language. I guess I prefer my comedy a bit kinder. Even today's "comedy" shows are a bit crass for me. Not all of them, nor all their episodes. Guess that's why I tend to prefer sports, drama & reality TV shows.

    I found it humorous, not slap your knees tears rolling down your face funny, but still humorous. Mostly because I spend to much time trying to read some of my niece's and nephews (under 23) posts.

    I realize that there are many phrases, pictures of my childhood (like the Holiday gas station rewards stamp books), that they are :confused: about that my generation finds funny.

    :rolleyes: Do you seriously think PeterG or anyone else here is "laughing about insulin/hypoglycemia"? You just said you watch Chelsea Lately, which, last time I checked, was full of borderline offensive jokes about little people, back people, etc. etc. etc. So maybe you should dismount from the I'm-too-intellectual-for-you equine species upon which you are perched and get an everloving grip.
