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!

I get the joke, but I have no idea what TED talks is. Never heard of that. Is that a show ?

TED talks are informative/engaging speeches and presentations given in the form of short seminars to a large audience.TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) is a media organization which posts talks online for free distribution, under the slogan "ideas worth spreading". Talks are limited to a maximum length of 18 minutes but may be on any topic. Here's the TEDx website's explanation of selection criteria: "TED looks for engaging, charismatic speakers whose talks expose new ideas that are supported by concrete evidence and are relevant to a broad, international audience." best one I've seen is James Veitch: replying to spam emails. Honestly it always has me in tears definitely worth a watch! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_QdPW8JrYzQ

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.
