You know what's worse than telling a joke and hearing the crickets chirp afterward? The moment, when you thought, that someone else was struck by a case of misinterpretation of a joke, was utterly wrong or knew nothing, only to find out, that all this time it was you who was a captain obvious. For these funny people, whose unfortunate stories we have compiled below, it happened in such a hard way that the funny jokes they have missed turned even better after. Let it be proper condolence if it ever has happened to you, too.

From simply missing a classic short joke to firmly believing that somewhere in the world babies do get boiled during a religious feast instead of being submerged into holy water. From blowing best puns to misquoting famous people, these slightly dim-witted folks surely bit nails after posting their comments wanting to appear smarter than they are.

Some of these people need a bit of training in their sense of humor department, while others will need to learn not to jump too high. Nevertheless, it's kind of impossible to go through the hilarious entries without cringing. Scroll down to check out the good jokes before I spoil too much!

The answer by purple7122 is symptomatic for so many discussions on the internet. Many people are so outraged by small errors that they cannot even see the bigger picture or, in this case, the joke. It’s as if his/her brain stopped processing any information after reading the words Star Trek.

I have a lovely mug with a picture of a Dalek on it. The caption reads: "Look it's R2D2! I loved him in Star Trek!" I bring it to cons to get people all fired up.

Someone should paint that trashcan to look like R2- D2. That would encourage the children to properly dispose of their trash.

You know, I'm still not quite sure who this type of joke is making fun of. Is it people who know a lot of sci-fi, or people who pretend to know a lot about sci fi?
