    It's getting a bit old, people, yes?




    - my type is undoubtably PRUDE.
    Really? I haven't seen any such thing! I guess I must have scrolled past it.

    I have been tempted however to respond to the "What exercises do you do" thread by suggesting Kegels. I believe it is important for women to strengthen their pelvic floor. I'm sure Husband units would agree!

    Yeh, I was only kidding for starters, but really, the people who wouldn't catch the sarcasm on their own then I wouldn't bother using it with them. But I guess I don't often come across those kinds of people, living in England as I do

    See, I didn't write "only kidding" at the bottom of that post and I won't at the end of this one either, cos I kinda figure that the people who are on my wavelength will get that anyway, and the ones who aren't... well. They either will eventually, or whatever, but it sorta kills the whole tone of something, the atmosphere of something if you then have to add things like that at the end. Part of the fun is just leaving it like that to see who gets it, taking the risk of the backlash from the ones who don't, and the wry smiles and eye contacts between the ones who do while the ones who don't are ranting about what they think you just said-and-meant. See?

    Similar to the other ENTP's posting in this thread, I find that I am also a comedy snob.

    Yup. It totally kills the joke to have to explain it, or deaden it, or undermine it, or apologize for it. If the joke is to be made, it just has to be thrown out there. (No comedian makes jokes, then apologizes or explains after telling it.)

    I'll temper it occasionally now if I know that many people don't "know me" and thus won't know how to read something I straight-faced... but even now I'm prone to let it go and see what happens.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
