    So there's a guy who works in marketing... and he's writing something about the company... but then... the boss comes and say "Let's talk about our business!"

    I find ISTJ humor can be summed up as "It's funny because it's true!"
    Weathergirl: District 38 is sunny. Slight rock showers this morning. Chance of rock showers into the afternoon—20 percent. District 39 is cloudy. Chance of rock showers this afternoon—10 percent.
    Edward: Bebop here here! Alright woo hoo!
    Weathergirl: Chance of rock showers today upgraded to 90 percent.
    Edward: Really.

    I can see where it could be funny-but maybe it's not. Ne much?

    I think that Neil Hamburger is ISTJ-esque as far as comedy goes.
    If Men's Health magazine was true, you would never need to buy more than one issue.

    That's true for me. I seem to be funniest to other people when I'm making fun of something or pointing out the absurdity of something.

    Yes! That's how I am too!

    And I've noticed that, with ISTJs, when someone tries to use really silly/energetic humor with them, they just go But they'll like it if that someone's humor is on the totally opposite end of the spectrum (i.e. dark, sarcastic, deadpan). It actually reminds me of INTP humor, sometimes - loads of teasing and irony and laughing at idiots.

    ^ i.e. with the ISTJs I know. Dunno how representative this is.

    It's the same with me My ENTP's humour is very silly, clowny, I find it funny, but I have my limit. I find the more that kind of humour goes on, the more momentum and bigger it gets until it's too weird for me.

    I don't know....last night I was at work and a conversation went like...

    Woman: You sure have a lot of seafood!
    Me: Yeah....we're trying to make up for the oil spill.

    She cracked up laughing.

    I find Seinfeld and Kids in the Hall to be very ISTJ-type humor, as well as Mr. Show, the State, and Upright Citizen's Brigade. Much of the humor is literal on it's face and a bit slap-sticky, but the dark undercurrent is that "it's funny because it's true" and "people will get what's coming to them," to use the Seinfeld finale as an example.
