Humor meme
Snagged from calliopeia17.

Sunny/Dark: 6/10
drY/Gross: 4/10
Traditional/Offbeat: 6/10
Active/Passive: 3/10

You are a DYO--Dark Dry Offbeat. This makes you a Neurotic.

You are acerbic, cynical and can smile while you're tearing someone apart. You efface others as you would be effaced yourself, and no topic is taboo -- rape, renal failure, the Challenger explosion (Christa McAuliffe so-o-o had it coming). You like characters as quirky and upsetting as yourself. You are Dorothy Parker minus the Ayn Rand aesthetic. I have some friends like you, and they're funny as all hell.

You would watch The Day After and heckle the fashion.

You might like Seinfeld (and Curb Your Enthusiasm), the Fey/Fallon Weekend Update segments, Mean Girls, and anything Michael Ian Black is doing (VH-1 specials, Viva Variety, The State, flossing).

Of the 3130 people who have taken this quiz, 3.7 % are this type.

Your Active humor score of 3/10 means you are too shy shy. Hush hush, hide-away. You could really unload a can of whoop-ass hilarity on anyone -- anyone receptive to humor at all -- but the sneaky thing here is you don't really care. You don't feel the need to be the center of attention, so you hold the big guns in reserve until the right moment. In a world full of people who think they're funnier than they are, you're exactly as funny as you want to be. Um, regardless of whether anybody else ever takes notice.

Take the test here!

Snerk. I don't like Seinfeld (just don't like the characters; they bore me in a series setting, though I like the stand-up frames), but I'm always disappointed to miss the fake news on SNL. (Tina Fey is my favorite thing to come out of that show in years.) And how in the world did the quiz forget snark king Dennis Miller? With all the Gen-X refs (Christa McAuliffe, The Day After... I'm jonesing for some Duran Duran just about now), you'd think they'd hit Miller.

Sunny/Dark: 1/10

Active/Passive: 7/10

You are a SGT--Sunny Gross Traditional. This makes you a John Hughes.

Your sense of humor makes you the ultimate every- person, just I'm-a try not to trouble nobody. You're laid back. Like la-a-a-aid back. You might be from the Midwest.

You enjoy the occasional weird or dark humor, and the right joke out of nowhere can really make you laugh out loud. In fact, the funniest stuff for you is the stuff that takes you off guard. If you can see it coming, you don't want to see it arrive.

You probably don't think this site is all that funny. So it's weird that you're here. I appreciate it, though. Maybe I'll cut back on the ranting and say something nice for a change.

Of the 3236 people who have taken this quiz, 28.3 % are this type.

Your Active humor score of 7/10 means you are ju-u-ust right. You're probably pretty popular -- a walking social lubricant. You know how to take someone from on edge to relaxed, and from relaxed to larfing. You're kind of like an episode of Arrested Development. That show is good. Anyway. Rave on, funny one.

I'm kind of disappointed. I always thought that I was more cynical than that. It's a pretty good description, though I'm not from the Midwest and found the quiz vaguely amusing.

*points to above comment*

Slightly different scoring, but that was the result I got as well. Overall, pretty accurate (and I suppose you could consider OK to be Midwest), but I also figured my humor was a little more cynical than that too. My sarcasm's sure gotten me in trouble in the past with people, anyway.
