Quite So. Quite So.

the Wit

(60% dark, 13% spontaneous, 16% 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 you’re 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 effort to appreciate, but it’s also the best, in my opinion.

Also, you probably loved the Office. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, check it out here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/comedy/theoffice/.

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

Note: I do love The Office . . . and the American one too!

  1. go figure…. I am

    a Ham

    (47% dark, 47% spontaneous, 27% vulgar)
    your humor style:
    CLEAN | SPONTANEOUS | LIGHT

    Your style’s goofy, innocent and feel-good. Perfect for parties and for the dads who chaperone them. You can actually get away with corny jokes, and I bet your sense of humor is a guilty pleasure for your friends. People of your type are often the most approachable and popular people in their circle. Your simple & silly good-naturedness is immediately recognizable, and it sets you apart in this sarcastic world.

    PEOPLE LIKE YOU: Will Ferrell – Will Smith

  4. Say it isn’t so…

    I’ve done this twice and got the same thing:

    First:
    the Ham
    (39% dark, 60% spontaneous, 27% vulgar)
    your humor style:
    CLEAN | SPONTANEOUS | LIGHT

    Second:
    the Ham
    (43% dark, 56% spontaneous, 27% vulgar)
    your humor style:
    CLEAN | SPONTANEOUS | LIGHT

    Your style’s goofy, innocent and feel-good. Perfect for parties and for the dads who chaperone them.

    And I can’t stand Will Ferrell. I like him about as much as Laura likes John Malkovich.
