While dark humor isn't a new concept, the name was only introduced in 1935 by the French surrealist Andre Breton. Dark humor jokes include themes that are usually considered taboo or hard to discuss, while often including a touch of irony.

Most popular examples would be the writings of Shakespeare himself, who often viewed tragic moments with a lighter side, or the famous works of British comedians Monty Python.

Our brains have to work quite hard to understand irony - sarcastic messages load our craniums with double the computing, compared to usual forms of language. So having the sense of it, basically means, that your brain is more adept in solving creative problems. Though if you use it too much, other people might confuse your dark sense of humor for sociopath behavior.

Mr. Lovenstein, aka J. L. Westover, draws hilarious dark humor comics with the most unexpected endings. Featuring everything from animals to funny tips to random situations - I'm sure they'll help you get through this workday quicker. Check our collection of these dark humor memes below.

ZOMG. Mind scientifically blown to bits. So THIS is why we never see a happy snake; biologically they don't even know which end is up. Like Chris Rock as the Zebra in Madagascar when he too had a biological epiphany: "Am I white with black stripes or black with white stripes??" And my own biological epiphany: "Am I just "with" stupid as the infamous T-shirt declares? Or am I actually the stupid one in this duo???" Sadly, there is proof on a near daily basis that I am not just "with" stupid but am, in fact, ate-UP with the stupidness. A check of my Permanent Record shows I think and do more stupid before breakfast than most full-time professional morons do in a lifetime.

I've done this before. In middle school and freshman of high school. Made a number of upperclassmen friends this way.

Uphill! Both ways!! Farking kids with their fancy farking wheels and efficiencies and whatnot. It's just a fad. No way that whole "wheel" thing is gonna take off. No farking way.

I get this at Xmas time I wrap all my presents for people to match my decorations then I'm sad when I have to give them away and get assorted colours and patterns that don't coordinate with my tree. I think I may have issues!!

I believe it's alluding to the fact that the older man isn't happy.
