    Yeah, I was thinking that Homer Simpson is actually the proper stereotype of the ISTJ. Jung would've most likely described him as an Si dominant.

    Most people have described him as an xSFP, but now I honestly don't see this to describe Homer. He isn't Se, because they are interested in actively pursuing a variety of experiences, whereas Homer takes the experience in passively, usually by way of donuts, beer, and TV.

    He certainly fits Personality Page's description of an unhealthy ISTJ.

    [A dry, witty, clever, perfect for the occasion one-liner here]

    My best friend is an ISTJ. She's hilarious... even though her sense of humor may be really offensive to some people. She just makes fun of everything in sight, including me, and herself.
    I bet they'll put something in the air tonight, just to light your face.

As Mycroft mentioned, ISTJs can be very dry and very sarcastic, I think that is often misunderstood. I know it gets me in trouble a lot.

    Oh my gods, that's my humor exactly. People don't realize when I'm just playing, or that I'm being sarcastic. Or I'll say something in complete earnestness and have it laughed off. Why the hell can't people tell the difference?

    The people who think I'm funny think I'm hilarious, but it's completely lost on lots of other people.

    The funniest person I know is an ISTJ, or at least I think he is.

    He's really good at witty banter, and his comic timing is perfect.

    My family gets my humor but because they've been around me all my life. When I'm out at work or something, people just look at me funny or think I'm weird.

    I don't have a hard time making people laugh, but I do know that sometimes my humor can offend.

    Im an ISTJ and this is exactly my sense of humor as well. I can really relate to your whole post but especially that part. For me there is no explaining it and I sense that it is best that I dont even try or I will spoil the mystery haha.
    If Men's Health magazine was true, you would never need to buy more than one issue.
