The ingredients that make up humor are hard to pin down. What one person finds funny, another may not. What we do know about humor is that it is often a way to alleviate fear and anxiety. Humor disengages fear because it changes your perspective of the topic being joked about.
You can know a lot about a person by the jokes they tell. Jokes often carry hidden meaning for the person telling the joke, whether they are consciously aware of it or not. Too often, jokes are a way for a person to assert their feelings of superiority over others.
What does it say about a man who publicly posts jokes about eating pets? Who finds the idea of “it tastes like cat” or “deep fried puppies” to be humorous? It is particularly interesting when such jokes are made by a man who relies on his wife to support both himself and their large family. When the wife in question is a successful pet groomer.
I may not know the answers to those questions, but there is one thing I do know. If you have to explain the joke, then you have failed to be funny.
