Clever vs. Funny

If Adroitness is evading taxes, funny is getting married and finding out your father-in-law's the Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service. 

If Creativity helped you graduate with honors from medical school, funny is watching your brain surgery patients do the hokey-pokey. 

If Dexterity is cooking with chopsticks, funny is putting them up your nose.

If Expertise is designing complex software programs, funny is thinking your secret admirer is HOT when instead it's your computer playing a joke on you. 

If Genius is designing a time travel machine to pass straight through time loops, funny is getting stuck in one. 

If Intelligence is figuring out the rotation of the celestial bodies, funny is the Catholic Church locking you up so you can't go outside and look at the stars.  

If Nimbleness is being able to jump over a candlestick, funny is dying and finding out that heaven is filled with them. (Jack be nimble, Jack be quick, Jack jump over the candlestick)

If Resourcefulness is surviving a sinking ship, funny is when only your dog gets rescued. 

If Skill is building a collection of custom tree house condo's, funny is smashing your thumb nailing up the FOR SALE sign. 

If Talent is playing a playing Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 5, funny is dropping a piano on someone's head.

If Cleverness is posting this random bunch of clips, funny is thinking it's actually humorous! 

Post Script: After reading this post my son told me, "If lame is the new funny, then you're pretty funny mom!"
