I can agree that NFs aren't any more funny than anyone else but there IS such a thing as different senses of humor. Some people worship Monty Python for example, and I never once laughed at any thing that I've seen in any of the movies. Then there is the issue of me tending to use dry humor for example and some people like it, but then dry humor usually has no effect on me. Slapstick neither. But then Jim Carrey will make the most ridiculous face and I'll crack up. It's all relative.

My humour is dry and witty and on accasion if I'm seriousely seething over something, it will be sarsastic.
Generally, I find Britcoms funnier that our more widely familiar North American slapstick sitcoms. (With the exception of Seinfeld). Gerry's humour is actually extremely similar to my own as I will be amused by random everyday things, and want to ponder my musings with those close to me. They may not be funny to NT's, but that ok (and a shame)
I tend to think funny people are funny. I don't think this MBTI stuff has much to do with it. Especially since different people have different tastes in humor, so somebody is bound to think they are funny as people are bound to think your sense of humor is more idiotic than funny, and so forth, vice-versa, whatever.
It's really hard to deliver the joke as you're choking just trying to get it out of your system: "It's...MWHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.. HIHAHAHHAAHAHA.. You know..MWHAHAHAHA" *makes hands gestures and can't finish before the person leaves shaking their head*.
Usually the things I consider hilarious are useless to verbalize cause they're not funny really, hence me grinning/laughing/smiling like an idiot alone. Someone thinks I'm being sarcastic cause she can't say when I'm being serious and joking, they think I'm serious when I indeed am joking, and vice versa. I don't do it on purpose though. If anything I'm unintentionally funny. But, no, I'm not funny, but I find many things to be it.
INTJs do it too I've noticed, but they also got that sweet dryness.
The only person that I think has been amused with my erm... 'humor' like ever was I think an INTP.
