Nobody is smart (or tall) enough to never have something go over their heads. Whether we’re talking about jokes, quips, or subtly sarcastic comments, we’ve all been in awkward situations where we don’t understand something that is obvious to nearly everyone else. And we’re talking about majorly obvious things. Things that make a giant Woooosh sound when they fly over our heads at Mach 3, several miles above sea level.

To show you that having jokes go over our heads is a universal thing, we’ve collected some of the funniest such examples from the aptly named Woooosh subreddit. Grab some popcorn and get ready to laugh and cringe, dear Pandas. Remember to upvote your fave pics and share the times that jokes went over your heads in the comments below. Oh, and check out part 1 about people who clearly missed the joke right here.

One study found that "morally virtuous people" have trouble getting some jokes and this might lead them to be less liked than individuals who have a good sense of humor. In other words, somebody who is overly pious and serious might be less liked in their workplace, for instance.

"Although highly moral people are often viewed positively are often viewed for displaying admirable traits, they may also be disliked to the extent to which they are viewed as sanctimonious, prudish or unrelatable," the researchers at the National University of Singapore Business School stated. "As noted in the opening quote by Mark Twain that there is no humor in heaven, people have long considered the idea that there is a tension between morality and humor."

The Woooosh subreddit with 4 o’s and 861k members shouldn’t be confused with the Woosh sub with 2 o’s and 187k followers. Both subreddits deal with jokes that go over people’s heads but the latter focuses on Reddit moments while the former sees the entire internet as its playground.

Plenty of jokes are like onions—they have layers. The more experience you have and the more context you know, the better equipped you are to get any joke that comes soaring your way.

So if you don’t have anything planned this week, how about rewatching some of your fave childhood cartoons with a fresh pair of eyes? Odds are, you’ll notice a lot of hilarious jokes that you didn’t understand when you were little.

Like what Tulio and Chel were doing on the ground in the temple in The Road to El Dorado. Or how the Puss in Boots was arrested with catnip in Shrek 2. The same movie also had the Wolf reading a naughty magazine called Pork Illustrated in it, too. Wow, now those are some really grown-up jokes. And they went over a lot of our heads without us even noticing that we didn’t get them.

I like how you can easily recognize stupid people by their punctuation. They use cunt, dumbass, stupid, bitch, snowflake, moron, (my favorite) retard... as punctuation marks.
