Clean, Complex, and Dark

Your Score: the Wit

(61% dark, 30% spontaneous, 36% vulgar)

your humor style:

You like things edgy, subtle, and smart. I guess that means you're probably an intellectual, but don't take that to mean pretentious. You realize 'dumb' can be witty--after all isn't that the Simpsons' philosophy?--but rudeness for its own sake, 'gross-out' humor and most other things found in a fraternity leave you totally flat.

I guess you just have a more cerebral approach than most. You have the perfect mindset for a joke writer or staff writer.

Your sense of humor takes the most thought to appreciate, but it's also the best, in my opinion.

You probably loved the Office.

PEOPLE LIKE YOU: Jon Stewart - Woody Allen - Ricky Gervais

The 3-Variable Funny Test!

- it rules -

I prefer the American Office over the British Office, though it's far from my favorite show. Jon Stewart's ok (lately, I've watched more of Stephen Colbert) and I haven't seen a Woody Allen movie in years -- I would put Purple Rose of Cairo high on my list of favorite movies. But if we're talking stand up, I'm a big fan of Woody Allen's early work. Very nice absurdist storytelling. He recorded three albums between 1964 and 1968; I don't have any of those. What I do have is a 2 record set released in 1978 that contains material from those earlier albums. You can buy the CD of the same material at Amazon, though the CD cover is different from the album. Here's my favorite Woody Allen routine:

  • Listen to Woody Allen: Moose

Good to know I'm not the only affected by the Moose story.

Sounds like you'd make a good coffee, too.
