Do you ever answer a question with humor and totally piss people off?

I answered a question about homeschooling saying "nope..I want my children to be intelligent". I was aiming a joke at myself not at homeschoolers. Then I get all kinds of responses where they're on their soapboxes. I guess my sense of humor offends....
Do you find yourself answering with humor and get bashed for it?
Where's everyone's sense of humor these days?

  • Actually yes. I am a smart ass in real life too. Doesnt always go over well. I dont do it to piss people off...just being funny but people take it wrong. Good thing I dont have to show my face. ha! (that pissed people off the most though..when you say something smart & they dont have a profile to go bitch at)

  • i do this too the only problem is as you noticed its hard to sense a tone when reading and since 75% of people just love to be offensive on here anyways your odds of the joke being taken the way intended are slim to none.. unless of course you throw in a silly face j/k or lol

  • I am with you on this one. I find humor in things that other people dont. And I usually come out as being rude or hateful but don't mean to. I use humor for everything and I guess no one else shares my sense of humor..LOL.

  • While answering the question..the thought didn't even occur to me that my answer would be anything but funny. My mistake was that I was the first to answer the question...LOL.
    Some of the Mom's on here just need to laugh a little....hee hee!

  • My DH is like that...he gives smart a** answers (usually at someone's expense) and wonders why I don't see the "humor" in it. I've got a great sense of humor but I don't joke at someone else's expense.

  • It was at MY EXPENSE! I was saying that I don't want to homeschool my children because I want them to get a better education than I can give them. You wouldn't want to teach your child to build a bridge over a river if you've only built one over the carpet out of Lego's would you? That doesn't make me uneducated it just makes me smart in the sense that I know that I'm not a teacher. There are those that can teach..God has chosen to give me other gifts. I wasn't putting anyone down about their choice I was simply stating mine. If it was a smart a$$ answer it was aimed me. Some people on here just HAVE to find someone to bash. That's okay....there can be humor in that also ; )
