    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??
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    What's so ? 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 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.
    Crazy about sports!

    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 about that my generation finds funny.

    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.

    Actually, it can work that way, depending on how low it drops. (and how quickly)

    My sister is diabetic and was at work when it hit her. She could tell she was falling but has no real memory of exactly what happened. Her co-worker found her on the floor. It took her a day to start feeling normal again.

    I also had a brother who was diabetic. Once he blacked out behind the wheel of his car in rush hour traffic. Took out a concrete bus bench and hit the corner of a building. I also watched him have a seizure suddenly because of a drop in his blood sugar. It was terrifying to watch.

    Ultimately it was a low blood sugar that took him from us. He was found on the floor in a coma and lasted 19 days in a vegetative state before we had to make the decision to remove all support. He passed away within 36 hours after that.

    That being said, I did get the joke.

    I didn't think the youtube video was funny because they were overdoing the joke, but the text itself is funny. Think of it as an overdramatic soap opera (in the style of Korean soaps) where outrageous emotional events force viewers to suspend their disbelief while using horrific slang popularized on the internet.

    Actually, I think you can categorize this as satire, and we know how difficult satire can be for some people. I have a few people in my FB friends list who do in-fact type similarly to that or "share" overly dramatic stories thinking it's something truly deep or sad when it's really just ridiculous.

    I always can feel it when my bloogsugar begins to drop (when it hits around 70) and in my 14 years as a type-1 diabetic have never passed out. Sometimes I forget that other people don't have that same sensitivity and therefore it can be much more dangerous for them. Guess this is just a reminder that, when it comes to this disease, I do have that to be thankful for.

    What's with the personal attack? In what way did you construe any statement of mine on this thread as being "I'm-too-intellectual"? I admitted to watching Chelsea, hardly an intellectual endeavor. No need to be rude, iloveemoticons. Keep it klassy.
