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!

When you said earlier that you "got the feeling comedy is either dying or already dead", I was about to tell you that it was pessimist, because the idiots stand out in a crowd, that they are just more noticeable... Ok, I was wrong. There is a whole world of idiots. But the good news, is that Ladies and Gentlemen is not even close de "run out of stupids" ;p

Oklahoman's most used word is "Christianity" or "Evangelism" and the most used phrase "No porn" or "Lust drags you down to hell" I should know because I have lived in Oklahoma all of my life (also a joke, I'm clearly aware that this was a joke)

As a born and bred Texan, I can assure you that "y'all" is the most used word in Texas. The 2nd most used word is "ain't." The third is "Howdy." 😂
