A good example
of an anti-joke
is as follows:
Person 1: "A school bus full of children is winding through the mountains, taking the kids on a field trip."
Person 2: "Haha yeah?"
Person 1: "As it goes around a corner, it loses traction, and falls down the side of the mountain!"
Person 2: "Ha... Uh... Yeah?"
Person 1: "And it explodes."
Person 1: "No one survived! Tee hee hee!"
Person 2: *Stunned silence*
The anti-joke is sociopathic humor (or, non-humor, if you disapprove) at its best (or, worst)!
An anti-joke generally starts off as a normal joke, but quickly turns sour, as the joke diverges off to something that only those who are either insane or morally depraved would find funny. Alternatively, an anti-joke can be a joke that starts off normally, but purposefully ends as boringly as possible. Right now, I can assure you, some of you are thinking:
"Why would I want to tell an anti-joke?!?!?!"
I assure you, there are several reasons!
- You like to confuse people,
- You don't really like the people you are talking to,
- You are a sociopath,
- Your friends are sociopaths,
- The conversation you are in is so awkward that nothing can make it more awkward. Maybe this will even diffuse the awkwardness? Who knows!
- You need to demonstrate how avant-garde you are, or
- You're about to leave, and you need a creative exit.
Ah, the good ole anti-joke! The bastard child of comedy, and friend of sociopaths round the world! Something both awful and good, hilarious yet objectionable, avant-garde yet crude.
