I'm flattered, but really?

I found a link to an interesting "type of humor" test over at Boudicca's, and gave it a whirl. I like the results, but I wonder, do you think it's accurate in my case? I'd like to hear your thoughts.

the Cutting Edge

(52% dark, 52% spontaneous, 38% vulgar)

your humor style:
CLEAN | SPONTANEOUS | DARK


Your humor's mostly innocent and off-the-cuff, but somehow there's something slightly menacing about you. Part of your humor is making people a little uncomfortable, even if the things you say aren't in and of themselves confrontational. You probably have a very dry delivery, or are seriously over-the-top. Your type is the most likely to appreciate a good insult and/or broken bone and/or very very fat person dancing.

3 Sounds pretty close to me. And I'd definately say you have a dry delivery as opposed to over the top. Sample: "I want to know what this 'empty nest syndrome' is all about." heh.

4 "somehow there's something slightly menacing about you"

No offense doll, and I hate to detract from your image, but you're about as menacing as a Care Bear.

Nor do I think your delivery is dry or OTT. You are damn funny and we're all laughing WITH you. And sometimes AT, but usually WITH.

Your humor has an intellectual, even conceptual slant to it. You're not pretentious, but neither are you into what some would call 'low humor'. You'd laugh at a good dirty joke, but you definitely prefer something clever to something moist.

You probably like well-thought-out pranks and/or spoofs and it's highly likely you've tried one of these things yourself. In a lot of ways, yours is the most entertaining type of humor.

Hmm... That's pretty good.

Now that's funny!
