Sometimes they are hilarious and I truly enjoy them. Then they get old after a while. I can always tell when someone gets a new computer because they keep sending the jokes. When they realize there are other interesting things online, they slow down. But, if it is truly hilarious, and doesn't have a virus, send it on!
Depends On How Much Of A Sense Of Humor People Have.. You Have To Be Careful... I Have A Good Sense Of Humor But I Don't Like Raunchy Jokes.. I Like Stuff Like " What Did The Mountain Say To The Tree? Stop Peeking On Me" Or Off The Wall Stuff.. Sarcasm Appeals To Me... I Read Dave Barry. And I Like Stephen Colbert.. That Kind Of Stuff
I like the one's with odd animal friendships, like a frog and turtle or dog and cat etc... Sometimes people send horrible things under the guise of humor. I do not find someone getting beaten up or hurt to be in the realm of funny.
I have received some that caused me to laugh so hard I have cried. Others are just ho-hum repeats that keep coming back like a bad nightmare. I delete more than I forward. I never forward something that I have seen previously, I just assume if I have seen it, everyone else has also. I have a rather large group of friends that I correspond with and I generally receive dozens of e-mails daily. I have to be pretty particular about what I forward or I would smother my friends with unwanted e-mails and jokes.
