The Three-Variable Funny Test

Found this via Dead Frog.

It's a short, simple test that rates Clean/Vulgar, Light/Dark, and Spontaneous/Complex. Try it yourself and see where you end up. I'll put my result in the comments in case you want to take the test first.

I rated as The Cutting Edge: Clean/Spontaneous/Dark. My clean and spontaneous ratings were about 35% higher than average, and my clean rating was probably a little too clean. My dark was 91% above average. Thank you, Catholicism.

Hmm. How odd. I also rated Clean/Spontaneous/Dark. I wasn't as dark as you, about 84%, but I was a 38% on spontaneity, and, most surprising, only a 37% on vulgarity.

Suddenly our relationship veers up in sharp relief. We are only together because we find the same things funny, I guess.

I'm clean/complex/dark or "The Wit." People like me are Jon Stewart, Ricky Gervais, and Woody Allen. I probably loved "The Office," according to this test. My opposite is the Idiot Savant.

52% dark, 34% spontaneous, 31% vulgar.

The other info:
"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."

I also was the Cutting Edge
(57% dark, 50% spontaneous, 31% vulgar). My humor style:

"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 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.

we're all the same!

the Wit
(71% dark, 26% spontaneous, 26% vulgar)

so this makes me darker than ser but less spontaneous and vulgar. interesting. i have no idea what the significance of that is, but there must be some.
