    The only time literalizing a metaphor could be funny is if you turned it into a sexual joke. And even then it would have to be self-conscious or ironic, which can be grating if not done properly.

    Please don't blame this on Ti.

    INTJs are much more prone to literalism. I find on the forum at least that satire, sarcasm, joking, and situational context have gone WAY above the heads of some INTJs in the past and it makes me go . I think Ne helps INTPs a lot. I don't know RL INTPs who are literal like this.

    Wait were the INTPs joking?

    If I give the literal response to something, I'm always joking; occasionally, though, if someone straight-faces a joke without any cues that they're kidding, I will fall for their joke and give a literal response to it.

    It's a function combo, if anything.

    Still, you can't ignore silly INTP cliches that are very much true, such as the fixation on MPFC.

    2012 NFL Junior Best and Fairest results.
    Posted by mpjfc in Achievements | 0 comments
    The Northern Football League hosted the 2012 Junior Presentation Night on Monday, August 13, in front of more than 300 people at Planet shakers in Lower Plenty.

    Compared by Gold 104.3 announcer Craig Huggins, the awards night was held in the lead up to the junior Grand Finals, with all 24 premiership cups on display ahead of Sunday’s premiership deciders.

    In just its second season in the competition, Bundoora Park was awarded the NFL Junior Club of the Year. Other major award winners were Lalor Stars youngster Jasmine Fitzgerald who took out the Lew Hall Players Award, and Eltham’s Kieran Malone who claimed the Northern Knights Under-15 Rookie of the Year.

    Demi-Lee Hallett was awarded the Youth Girls best and fairest in her very first season of football, meanwhile Luke Harvey claimed the Most Promising Junior Umpire, and Martin Rodger the Junior Umpire of the Year. It was one of two awards won by Martin on the night, with the young star also claiming third-place in the under-16 Red best and fairest award.

    Congratulations to Mitch Andrews (Under 13 Blue) and Christian Janev (Under 16′s Blue) who were both invited to the NFL Junior Presentation Night on Monday night. Mitch won the under 13′s Best and Fairest and Christian took home 2nd Best and Fairest.

    Aren't these jokes? Maybe not the last one, because that is a legitimate criticism of musicals, but the other two are things I'd totally say for funsies.

    Maybe, probably. There was no rimshot. It doesn't really matter, though. Even if, it's a particular type of joke that seems to more easily occur to a particular type of person.

    Do you really take literally their "literal" take? Because that probably pleases them no end. Also it would make this thread ironic win.
