The Hulk could often be happy, it was only in comics that he was depicted as being morose/unhappy.

Umm.. it was only in "comics" that he was unhappy? As opposed to? Real life when he was hanging out with jesus?

sorry, I don't understand the question?

To explain:
  • 1. "The Hulk could often be happy..." An absurd statement. How could I possibly know/believe this unless I lived in a fantasy world?
  • 2. "...it was only in comics that he was depicted as being morose/unhappy." Another absurd statement. The implication is that he was somehow a real person who in real life was often happy. But he was never a real-life person (as far as I am aware) and only ever a comic-strip character, and so it could only be that he was ever depicted in comics (or TV/movies of the comic character) as unhappy/morose, or anything else for that matter.
  • 3. 1st Conclusion: The speaker would seem to be living in a fantasy world to have believed such a thing.
  • 4. Rethink: This was posted in "Re: silly humor - post 'em here! [warning some NSFW and adult content]". Hmm...
  • 5. 2nd Conclusion: Anyone making such a statement is either saying it tongue-in-cheek as a joke or is completely off his rocker. Since this is in a silly humour thread, assume the former to be the case, and smile at the joke someone apparently just made about himself.    Grin

Actually, explaining it like that rather seems to kill it stone dead. (Sigh.)

I was of course saying it tongue-in-cheek, but I suppose I could be off my rocker without realising it.    Wink

I thought it was funny.

But I was too busy "playing along," defending my silly argument to point out that I understood your humor. Thmbsup

I could see from your comment that you had got the joke, but I wasn't too sure about the comments that followed it - whether they were taking my comment seriously. I don't wish to inadvertently offend anyone by mistake/misinterpretation.
Quite the opposite, I only wish to offend people when I intend it to be offensive.

I missed the joke because I failed to give you sufficient credit for a very nice subtle joke.. But I do appreciate it now thumbs up

Actually this just reinforces one of my philosophical theories of happiness -- that we would all be much happier if we proceeded on the basis that those around us who seem to hold dramatically different political/religious/philosophical views than our own are really just putting on a deliberately absurdist performance for our amusement, and don't really believe anything they are saying.

...are really just putting on a deliberately absurdist performance for our amusement, and don't really believe anything they are saying.
Yes - what a coincidence! - this is a principle that I have had to learn to apply and have applied for a long time. It helped me cope with Asperger syndrome (runs in the family). As a child, I would take any apparently factual statement or argument that I heard/read, and I would analyse it for rationale/truth, and it would disturb me greatly if it did not stand up to critical analysis. I could understand if it was flawed out of some mistake, but I could not understand if it was flawed out of some deliberate untruth - why would someone deliberately articulate an untruth? (Nowadays, I just become intensely annoyed when I catch someone lying.)

But that principle is so useful. When I hear/read about what seems some interesting but outlandishly daft statement or proposition that has no real substantiation in fact (e.g., James Lovelock's "Gaia Hypothesis"), I do wonder whether they "...are really just putting on a deliberately absurdist performance for our amusement, and don't really believe anything they are saying."
The depressing thing (for me) is when you realise that apparently they do not intend to entertain with absurdity and they apparently seriously do believe in what they are saying - e.g., Tom Cruise's freaky Scientology interview - Tom Cruise Scientology Video - (Original UNCUT)

Apologies for my obscure humour, anyway. I think I acquired it by being brought up by Yorkshire folk. It doesn't always "translate" very well into other cultures.

A man needs to do a fertility test. He goes to the doctor. The doctor gives him a phial and says him to fill it.
The following day the man comes back to the doctor and says:
"Doctor, I didn't succeed in filling it, and yet I tried in any way.
I tried with my right hand. No result.
I tried with my left hand. No result.
Then I asked my wife for help.
She tried with her right hand. No result.
She tried with her left hand. No result.
She tried with her mouth... up and down... for a long time. No result.
Then I asked my beautiful housemaid for help.
She tried with her right hand. No result.
She tried with her left hand. No result.
She tried with her mouth... up and down... for a long time. No result.

Ok, here's a concept for everyone that understands the technologies to laugh over...

1) Accept voice input
2) Recognize voice input in speech to text
3) Machine translation to another language
4) Output original voice input in another language

Just how mangled could that get? tongue

This reminds me of a joke I heard:

A man goes to the doctor. Several hours later he comes home dressed in a suit and tie with a $300 haircut. His wife asks him what was with the change of appearance. He replies: "The doctor said I was impotent so I figured I'd better look impotent!"

I think the humor was that a big government think-tank thought that would be an effective commercial to interest girls/women in science, all while portraying women as stereotypically interested in only fashion and sexiness and makeup.

Yes, I think @Deozaan has it right.
The humour is in that it is the second recent example of an expensive EU PC propaganda FAIL, pushing a PC feminist and "gender-balanced" ideology.
They apparently pulled it after a solid wall of negative feedback.
They pulled the previous one a couple of months back - another epic FAIL - which was pushing the same PC feminist and "gender-balanced" ideology.

The thing is, the sexes must be equal, you see, though, annoyingly, Nature seems to have mucked that up a bit.
I read somewhere recently that the EU Commission have apparently scheduled another "gender-balanced" video which encourages men to have a recently-perfected transformational surgery which enables men to bear children.
