You're hanging out with some friends, and you make a joke.

One of your friends is unexpectedly (to you) offended by that joke. Asks you "what you mean" by it.

You explain it was just a joke.

And then they ask THE QUESTION: "what's so funny about that?"

I know that, in my lifetime, this question has never yeilded an answer that has actually made the questioner laugh.

Has anybody ever managed to make somebody laugh after they asked you that question?

Step up now and proclaim thyself a god.

Once back in the day, I went with a friend to an after bar party at some friend of his. It was cool. We were hanging out, having a couple of beers, smoking a bowl, playing Goldeneye. Regular college guy stuff.

So things are cool. I'm mostly hanging out with some guys that I don't know, other than the buddy who took me there, and having a good time. I'm playing the game, and something happened that wasn't right - I didn't get a gun, or I shot someone and they didn't go down like I thought they should - I don't quite remember. And I blurt out "AW MAN! I got JIPPED!"

Suddenly the room fell dead silent, and eyes got big, searching the room for the wierder looking guy of the group who was looking incredulous.

"Hey man! I'm full blooded Gypsy! Let's go easy on the slurs while you're enjoying my hospitality, huh!?"

This was my stark introduction to the fact that "jipped" is actually "gypped." I felt like I had stepped on a rake.

I apologized and explained that I had never put two and two together and made the connection that word was a racial slur. It had always just been a throw away word for me. Everything was cool after that, but I felt like a heel for the faux pas.

I believe the Roma originally came from South Asia. They are a pretty mixed group though.

Naw, me and my friends been cracking jokes since we were in grade school. NOw if you do that to a stranger you may have to expect a negative reaction. Honestly, there are just some people that cant take a joke.

My best friend once busted a Corona bottle over some dudes face then beat the living shit out of him for saying a mom joke to him, but he didnt even know that guy. He was also drunk.

Worst thing that ever happened to me was at a party. We were all drinking, having a good time, and then my friend (his parents are from India, so he's a brown guy) who likes to joke around that he's white (his 3 loves in life are baseball, football, and NASCAR) did something very stupid. We made both cups while playing beer pong, so we would get shoot again. Right after this, my friend (the brown one) yells, "WHITE POWER!" It reminded me of the movies where the DJ's music skids to a halt... Every person at the party looked at us (mind you there were about 5-6 black people). I didn't know what to do so I said "says the brown kid?" Then I decided to go over to the one black kid who we were playing against and said, "Man, who fucking invited this kid?" (Everyone knew that I'd brought him). Let's just say that no one freaked out, but it did make it very uncomfortable for a littel while.

Lesson Learned:
Do not yell "White Power" anywhere where non-caucasians are. No matter what. Even if you're not a caucasian. Really.

Anyway I Stood up and started clapping WHOOO NO national Championchips, no scoreboard, no bcs wins whoooo we freaking ruuuuuuuuuleeeee

I remember being at a St. Patty's bash in Rolla before we went to some frat and other than me and my friend there was only one other guy in the hotel party (probably 14-15 gals.) So I walk in from the "tied-room," where the keg was, into to the next one where everyone (one guy, about 8 chicks) were sitting in a circle and talking all serious.

Suddenly the guy says "Yeah, people don't look at gay and lesbian the same."

Of course I jump in with "Yeah, it's funny. You go to a party and a bunch of fellas' will pay to watch two chicks kiss but later on they'll say all pillowbiters should die..."

The whole room gets quiet.

Apparently, the lone dude was gay.

The room pretty much clears out, all girls leave insulted, and few of the girls give me dirty looks. I had no idea. The guy comes up and says "Yep man, pretty much." Then he just looks at me.

So I asked if he was a "pinky-up gay too good to get drunk on beer" or if he was going to grab me one.

"Uh, yeah. Hold on."

Because of the way I look and dress people were waiting for a fight or some odd moment but me and the lone-rump-ranger got along just fine.

It all worked out in my favor. He gave me some nice tips on how to "first time" a gal while everyone else was busy talking about Rausch the gay-hater or heading next door for Sonic.

When I was in high school and college, I worked at a restaurant. I worked a lot of closing shifts, and we would put all of the chairs up on top of the tables for vacuuming. Then, once a week or so, this family would come out of the woods to do a carpet cleaning and other janitorial work. This family was really backwards - a dad, a mom, and two daughters who were about my age. This was one of those families that eats road kill and stuff - I'm talking really back-woodsy, but they were nice and we all got along. The daughters would flirt with the guys, me included. If you put them in a nice salon and give them clothes, they would probably rise to an average level of attractiveness if they didn't talk, but in their regular state they were more in the 3-point range.

Like I said, though, nice folk, so we all got along fine.

So one night they're doing the carpet cleaning and another guy and I are closing down the restaurant, and one of the daughters came back to our area. We'd put the chairs on the tables and they were finishing up their work.

"Hey," she says, "can y'all put the chairs down for me?"

"Okay", I quipped. "Hey chairs, you're ugly."

The other dishwasher laughed, and I smiled at my little pun, and the hillbilly girl suddenly burst into tears. "WHY DID YOU CALL ME UGLY?", she yelled, and ran off.

The other dishwasher, a friend of mine, chased her down, as did I, and we tried to explain the joke to her, but she was inconsolable. She stalked off.

Then about ten minutes later, the dad comes in. "Why in hell did you call my daughter ugly?" he demanded.

The other dishwasher and I tried to explain the joke, but this guy wasn't buying it. From that point on, the relationship was ruined. Whenever we worked together, I'd just get glared at. Fortunately, for some reason they quit or were let go not long afterwards, but it was quite awkward, and somewhere to this day some hillbilly family probably still thinks I'm the biggest jerk ever.

I've had this happen twice to me.

Once I was sitting around with two of my friends watching sports and they invited one of their buddies over to watch it with us and drink some beers. So we're sitting there and there was some play where Notre Dame got screwed over (shutup) and I yelled out....."Man...we just got jewed!" Now I'm not antisemitic or anything....it's just something I've said for a long time. I don't mean any disrespect by it and I don't hate Jewish people at all. The guy looks over at me and goes "Dude...I'm fucking Jewish....you have a problem?" I told him that I didn't...and then he comes back with this. "Better yet....I'm Jewish and you have a bigger nose than I do." That was the end of that....I about spit out my beer laughing so hard.

The other time was with a friend and I said the same line and he came back with..."Dude....fuck you...I'm half-Jewish." Umm yeah....I'm pretty sure you can't be HALF a religion.

Wow, I never knew that. Reminds me of the first time I realized the racial connotations of the word "jewed," which was a word I heard used frequently growing up and simply accepted without understanding its true meaning.

Of course, one is not likely to encounter many Jews or Gypsies in small town Missouri.

One time i was sitting around with my girl and her friend, and her friend's black friend smoking a blunt. Now, i have two cats; a gray cat and a black cat. (you guys can probably see where this is going). I call the gray cat "The gray one" and i call the black cat "N*****" the black cat jumped to the top of the entertainment center and almost knocked a picture down, so my stoner ass yelled, "N*****!!" I completely forgot the black friend was sitting there. He pretended like it didn't happen. That was awkward.
