I do the same thing, have always been self-conscious about it...
Same, somehow trying to explain it makes it funnier to me? And I get progressively more hysterical, and it hypes up the other person that this thing that I've seen is so funny it will break your mind, and when I finally compose myself enough, it's just something dumb like a weird cat video, and the other person is so exasperated that they wasted two minutes watching me laugh, waiting for the punchline, for nothing.
One time, my friend was eating something and missed his mouth. Food bounced off his cheek, the shock and embarrassment made him flinch, and the flinch made him drop the food. Before the food even hit the floor, he said “I’m still eating that” with a serious expression on his face.
I have never been so out of breath from laughing in my life! I can’t explain why it’s so hilarious. Just thinking about it now, years later, makes me smile. My friends huddled around me and waited for like 2 minutes for me to stop and catch a breath and I eventually did, but then I tried to explain why it was so funny and that took another 5 minutes to get through cuz I was laughing so much, and in the end none of them thought it was even moderately funny...
I think it may have just been my state of mind. I was just really, really, really happy. I was surrounded by good friends, it was the end of college, I had few responsibilities or worries, the sun was shining, and everything was just perfect! I didn’t consciously process it at the time, but I guess my body decided to express this happiness it could no longer hold in by bursting out in uncontrollable laughter.
This is so pure and I hope you have many more of these moments in your life
What a NICE thing to say. I hope you have moments like that as well! You didn’t say it to me, but random acts of kindness and kind words must not go unnoticed.
I agree with you. Kind words & random acts of kindness are like life’s food. Gives us comfort & confidence, makes us strong & keeps us going.
Reminds me of a horrible story with my uncle that still has me in stitches even now just typing about it. He used his new electric grasscutter, but he did so in flip-flops and accidently went over his foot and his big toe got cut off, but it also launched his toe which went into his eye. They were able to re-attach his toe, but he lost his eye.
He almost pirated himself in one go, but now he'll have to go out on flipflops more often.
I'm wheezing what the fuck
I just cackled and exclaimed “HE LOST HIS EYE?!?” to a quiet room. This is hilarious. I mean, terribly sorry about his eye, but omg hahahaha
Don't worry he has a good sense of humor about it, lol.
He won't stop making pirate jokes.
I laughed so hard I knocked over my boiling pot of water and scalded my stuffed animal bison on the floor lmao
Saving this comment so I can catch second hand happiness.
My sister made me laugh like this one time! We were out to eat and she was trying to eat a BBQ wing and dropped it. And the same second she dropped it the waitress came up and said "how is everything?" and the combined looked of my sister shocked from dropping her food and and the embarrassment of the waitress seeing her had me in tears. And let me tell you I do not have a quiet laugh. I'm filling this packed Applebee's with my belly laughter and I seriously still can't think of it without chuckling
I know exactly what that feels like you described it so perfectly. My friend and I call those "Life Moments" and I live for them.
That almost set me off to laughing so no it is funny, to me at least. Thank you for the story!
I have actual tears from laughing at this utterly pure moment
I feel attacked...
My little brother does this as well and I love it. I don’t even care if the story ends up being disappointing, him struggling to tell the story while cracking up is hilarious in of itself.
My favorite part is when he finally composes himself, just to break down laughing as soon as he starts talking again. Makes me laugh every time!
I feel this on an atomic level.
Just so you know, there are plenty of people like me who are there for the story, not for the ending. I find the hysteria funny and usually assume it's something stupid, but it doesn't matter to me because we're both laughing along the way. It's the same reason /r/contagiouslaughter is so popular; it's not the punchline that's funny, it's someone genuinely losing it and laughing hysterically.
Oh this is such a perfect description of it!
Feeling you on this 100%. ;)
Well you just gave me a good chuckle :)
If they don’t laugh maniacally at your laughing then they’re a waste of your time
Now you know you are adorable.
Yep. My husband calls me a "laughing whore", because I have a very low threshold for what will make me crack up. At least a couple times a week, I'll find a comment or video that will make me laugh for a good few minutes. Then, just when it starts to pass, I'll look at it again and the cycle starts over.
I used to be good at suppressing the urge to laugh.
Then I joined Reddit.
Boy howdy, does my skill just up and die on the spot every time I open this blasted app/website.
My mother does too, and we egg her on because it's hilarious. And she'll keep laughing for 5 minutes at a time. It's one of the things I love most about her.
My mom does this too, it's a joy!
Don't be, it's so much fun lol
But you don’t understand- being self-conscious is like 70% of what I do.
One time, I played Cards Against Humanity with my friend and his group of friends. I can't remember what one of them said, but it was in the same vein as "stop laughing and spit it out."
I've always been self-conscious about my behaviour and mannerism. That experience only reinforced that self-consciousness. Since then, I try my best to hold it in when I have to speak or read things out loud.
Edit: Aww, thank you all for the support. You guys are so sweet :) And yeah, you'd think out of all the games, CAH would be the last one where laughing would be something to sneered at. I haven't seen that person since, so no risk of having to put up with them again. But it's like /u/Grem-Zealot said, it really can take one single offhanded comment to mess you up for a long time.
It only takes a single offhand comment made by someone to fuck you up for a looong time.
Jerks. Doesnt take THAT much longer to let you laugh it out!
People suck, and are too serious sometimes even if they were playing around. I wouldn't expect someone saying that game to be like that. You should let loose, fuck what people think or say. You might look silly sometimes but who cares laughing makes me feel so good I hope it does the same for you.
And see, I love to see someone laughing so hard at something that they can’t breathe, their face turns red, they gasp, they snort, they almost pee themselves, their ribs hurt. I’ve had things strike me as irresistibly funny and I get like that. It feels so good when you’re finally done because you feel purged and clean.
I’d never tell you to stop laughing. I’d be laughing with you.
Of all games to be serious in, it’s definitely not cards against humanity. That was mean.
My brother has the same laugh and I get a strong tickle out of is every time. It makes everything funnier, because usually him doing it sets off my sister and myself. Your laugh is a special gift! There’s no doubt people around you that your laughter has cheered up so take heart in that.
Laughing is why I even play that game, what the fuck was that guy's problem? You shouldn't spend time with people who shame you for feeling good.
Me too. My ex HATED it. Would get super fed up and angry at me when I would do it.
My ex too. One time we were in a restaurant waiting for food and he asked me if I changed my perfume or something. I replied no. A few moments later he asked me to check the bottom of my shoes because he smelled dog poop. It hit me so funny that when he smelled something terrible he assumed it was my perfume first? I started laughing, tears running while I tried to explain what was so funny. He was so mad and was hissing at me to be quiet and stop bringing attention to myself which only made me howl louder. I can’t help it!
The tables around us started to notice and I don’t know if was my laugh, or the spectacle of a woman losing her absolute shit across from a stoic, red-faced man but they all started laughing too. It took forever for all of us to recover. He was pissed lol.
And that's why they're an ex, yeah? ;)
One of the many reasons. The biggest was we each had to go to a different state and they acted like it was nothing. Took me a long while to realise how emotionally manipulative and abusive they were. But that relationship will never happen again. No matter how low I feel I am.
I am the same way. I thought it was mega annoying and I felt bad that I couldn't help it.
Lately, my friends and boyfriend have told me that they think it's cute and endearing and they love it. I can sometimes struggle with being critical of myself, but them telling me how much they like that I'm like this has really helped me to like myself a little bit more.
No, please keep doing this. It's the best part about funny stories.
I also do the same thing. Got it from Grandpa who is no longer here. I will cherish it forever.
Don't worry, my favorite part of a story is the shared laughter. You're just adding a little extra flavor to it!
Don't be self conscious. Even if your story isn't funny, your telling of it makes it hilarious 😁
My ex boss used to do this with his one and only joke. Every time someone asked him to tell it, the whole room would erupt in laughter! The joke wasn't even funny!
My wife is like this with her one joke. Except she never ends up telling it right, so she spends 5 minutes cracking up trying to say two lines, then messes up the punchline so the joke doesn't even work anyway. It's delightful.
Her: I think those are the [giggle] award-winning cows.
Me: [Sigh] Oh really, why did they win an award?
Her: They [several minutes of laughter] they're standing [more uncontrollable laughter] they're standing outside [giggle] in a field.
Everyone else within earshot: wut?
Just reading this has me giggling. This thread (and your wife's joke!) is awesome
I'm either too high or too drunk but I laughed a looot.
Edit-> too high. I'm now laughing at my own laugh.
I love when I get in a laugh loop! Hopefully you enjoyed it 💙
I'm 100% sober and literally cry laughing at this. No idea why. Tears running down my face though.
Totally understand this. It's hilarious when someone finds something so funny they can't keep themselves from laughing before getting it all out. Everyone laughs not because the joke is funny but because the person telling it finds it so funny.
I’m not one to laugh hard very easy, especially in the movie theatre. However, when we went to see Borat for the first time I was laughing so hysterically that the entire audience was laughing with me instead of Sacha.
Lmao this is hilarious. Also is your boss Michael Scott.
HEY DARRYL HOW'S IT HANGIN
Shortly after I had heart surgery, when I was at home and barely a week out of recovery, my sister brought her kids over to visit. At one point my one of my nieces came into the living room pulling a toy dog behind her and announced “god is here!”
I have no idea what was going through her head but I nearly cracked my sternum laughing. Even now it still makes me chuckle.
Kids are so psychotically free, and I am 100% here for it.
(Edited: one werd)
Neat, never seen that word before
I had a Nuss procedure done eight years ago, and god did it hurt to laugh. Laughing when having had any kind of surgery in the chest area is no joke.
I had the same surgery done 5 years ago! Goddamn that week recovery in the hospital sucked balls. Tube in dick for half of it, barely able to walk, and the most pain I've ever felt when nurses rolled me over to do something with my back epidermal. Not to mention the constant blur of dream vs reality due to morphine.
I had some kind of reaction to the first pain med they put me on, so I couldn't keep any food down for the first two days or so. But then they switched the pain med and I got a lot less nauseous.
I also ate very little. 8 days later was my first bowel movement, and that was only after suppositories (shudder).
I had a pectus carinatum, the opposite of what you got treated for! I also got surgery for it, took me several weeks before I could laugh and cough again without getting stunned from the pain
When I was a kid my mum had a complete hysterectomy following a cervical cancer diagnosis. She'd come home and was in recovery but was all stitched up. At the time we had two living rooms, separated by a glass door. In one living room is my mum and my aunt watching fuck knows what, some kind of fluff. And in the other is my dad and I watching an old English sketch show. My dad has a really contagious over the top laugh and every time he'd boom out a laugh you could hear my mum through the glass doors laughing at his laugh and then going "ow! Stop making me laugh, my stitches", for a whole night. Neither of them could help it and everyone was cracking up.
Literally the one good memory I have of my parents together and makes me chuckle when I think of it.
After having a surgery on my esophagus I met with some friends when I came out of the hospital. I was mostly fine but still sore.
My friend told something funny and I had to laugh. And my god, laughing hurt! And the absurdity of laughing causing so much pain made me laugh even more. So I was sitting in that café, cry-laughing of pain and joy while people were sure I'd gone mad.
Oh man, post surgery laughing is a nightmare! I was recovering from major abdominal surgery and had just got out of intensive care when my mum told me this story. It cracked me up so much but I couldn’t laugh properly so I was just sort of trembling with tears running down my face, occasionally crying out in pain.
Copied from an older comment of mine...
My family dog loves sausages. They’re his absolute favourite and whenever he gets one (a rare treat) he looks at it with astonishment, and then carries it around in his mouth like a cigar, before burying it in his bed for later.
One night my dad was staying over and was sharing a room, but two separate (single) beds, with my mum. As she was drifting off to sleep my mum heard my dad fussing about, followed by a shriek. ‘What’s this?!’ my dad shouted, before pulling a raw sausage link out of his blankets. Upon realising it was a sausage his knee jerk reaction was to throw it (he’s a vegetarian, so extra unpleasant for him!). Unfortunately my mum happened to be his target, so after being disturbed by her shrieking partner she then had to deal with this sausage missile.
Once they’d calmed down they came to the conclusion that the dog must have got hold of the sausage and buried it in that bed, for some unknown reason.
Just as they were both about to try and go back to sleep their grandson wandered in, half asleep and rubbing his eyes
‘Nana, there’s a sausage in my bed...’
I wish I had that sort of confidence walking into a room
I do this too and I hate it. I’ll still be giggling at a joke a half hour later when everyone else has forgotten about it. It’s embarrassing
oh god I know exactly what you mean. like if somebody says something funny and everyone has a nice laugh about it, then returns to a straight face in a reasonable amount of time, except my dumbass that erupts into sudden laughter just thinking about it for the next few minutes and has to forcibly restrict itself to not look completely insane
I do it all the time, everyone looks and me and says “Still?” And I laugh even harder.
They do it on purpose because it makes you laugh harder.
I mean, that's what I would do and why I would do it.
If somebody says something funny
It's usually me saying something not all that funny that'll give me the giggles for at least 30 minutes and that's the worst part
Same here. Or it will pop into my head several days later and I will laugh to myself. I probably look like a crazy person.
You probably look like a happy person.
Nah it's not it's fucking great honestly. Like when you said something funny to your mate legit hours ago then make eye contact across a room and have to struggle not to die
This happened to me recently on reddit.
I think it was a comment talking about how he was in class in HS and really needed to fart, so he thought he could drop a text book on the floor to conceal the sound. But instead, dropped the book, everyone looked at him, then let out a huge fart.
God, I am laughing just typing it out. I was trying to tell the story to my wife and just couldn't handle it.
Laughed a whole lot reading it too, that is hilarious
I do something similar when I have to play any game that involves deception. Whether I’m lying or telling the truth I just can’t keep a straight face.
Sometimes when I heard a joke, I’ll be like, cool. And three minutes later I can’t even breathe and my mates are just like, “what?? Are you aight??” And I just start to cry aha
Holy shit is everyone in this thread also me? I had a dream once where-I don't fucking know-but the punchline of the experience was like Chappie from from that movie going "I am moisturize, I am skin...I am Chappie." and I woke up laughing so hard my s/o thought I was having some kind of attack, like actually tears streaming down my face trying to tell her the joke.
I have a friend like this & I have to say
The stories don’t even matter
The pre laughter alone makes me laugh so hard my belly aces
My friend told a story the other night, it's a hilarious story but I've also heard it several times but I knew what was coming. Her telling of it makes me laugh just as hard every time though! And I noticed her eyes smile the same no matter how many times shes told it. I wish more people told their stories like this.
My girlfriend can wiggle the tip of her nose like a rabbit. When she wants to see me laugh she'll look right at me and wiggle her nose because it gets me giggling every single time. She's magical.
My wife does this with her ears. She can make them wiggle a little bit and it's hardly noticeable unless you're looking for it so sometimes she makes eye contact with me, when we're out with other people, and I know it's coming and just start laughing uncontrollably. Makes me look like a right weirdo. I love her.
I wonder how many other ear-wigglers are out there. My dad and I wiggle our ears at each other in public often too, it’s like our secret one word language.
Mine does the same! But I drop low and wiggle my butt like I'm hunting. She can't stop her giggles when I launch at her as awkwardly as possible and gnaw on her nose.
I'm happy to see I'm not the only one who playfully attacks and chews on my SO.
You've given me an amazing idea
Add this to never-ending checklist for SO
Haha I do this. Bewitched style.
Last week my SO and I went out to dinner and he started laughing so hard over nothing that he was crying/couldn't breathe and had to step outside to calm down. It was a tiny restaurant with huge windows and everyone in the dining room could see him on the porch trying to cool off lmao.
This is so me. I remember I laughed like 10 or so minutes about something that wasn't even that funny, and whenever someone asked me what I was laughing about I just wheezed and couldn't get it out until much later. (Nobody laughed then, but they were laughing at my reaction.)
When my friend tony says "Eat stairs, kid"
I came up with it and either time one of us said it, it kills me. it comes from when i drove a car into a wall at like 120mph into some stairs in a racing game, and he said "god damn, you just ate fuckin stairs." I married it to the ubiquitous Simpsons catchphrase "eat my shorts" as spoken by the ever-eloquent Bart.
It comes from when I drove a car into a wall at like 120mph into some stairs
...in a racing game
For some reason I read that as eat stars, but it’s just as funny either way. My husband & I constantly make each other laugh without even saying a word. Those are the best laughs!!
when i put on eyeliner, i laugh so hard, and i always mess it up everytime. I get so mad at myself.
My eyes start gushing water the second I put on eyeliner. I’ve been doing this shit for 20 years and the assholes still wash away the first attempt almost every time. >:(
I’m just thinking about it and they started watering. Stupid eyes.
I do this too. When my fiancé and I first started dating he had never heard of bad luck Brian. So I google searched the meme and was reading them to him. I could always get the first part out but I was crying laughing and the second part. Every. Single. Time.
A fart will always make me giggle, every time.
Whose farts? Yours or someone else's?
Any kind of fart from anyone if it’s in a classroom. I always hated this because me and at least four others would try to hold in giggles, but hearing each other trying to hold in laughter just made it even funnier.
I was at a funeral once (mom made me go. I didn't know the guy) and during the prayer an old women ripped ass. That shit echoed. I thought my fucking head was going to explode from trying not to laugh.
I was at work the other day and someone down the hall was trying to tell a story and couldn’t stop laughing. You could hear him struggling to get the words out but he was laughing so damn hard. His laughter was so contagious, I was laughing. I still have no idea what the story was. He made my day.
This is how my brother and I communicate. It drives my wife crazy. We’ll only exchange 3 or 4 words in between fits of laughter and will have had a full-on conversation.
I always laugh at the word “poop” and “pee”
My little brother was sleeping in my bed with me last week. I was still awake on my phone and he was asleep. He was tossing and turning and spinning around until he rolled off the bed. He was okay but I absolutely couldn’t stop laughing I had to go to the bathroom so I could let him sleep.
I do this all.the.time. Particularly when playing Cards Against Humanity. I die of laughter every single time I have to read something out. My boyfriend thinks it's beyond hilarious.
Farts.... always farts
You should be around when my wife lets hers out. Aside from that horrible smell (seriously, what crawled up there and died), they're musical, which almost makes the smell worth it. I'm almost 100% positive her anus can play just about any song in like 3-6 second intervals.
My favorite thing to do is right when she cuts one, I'll look at her with a comical pissed off face, which makes her laugh, which in turn makes the gas come out in stutters, which makes both of us laugh. It's hysterical almost every time.
I know, we're not normal, but that's part of what makes our relationship so special. We laugh at the stupid shit the other does all the time.
She'd probably kill me if she ever found out I said this to anyone.
When I was younger I was at a sleepover at my aunt's house out of town. We had a sitter that night and he was a college kid, didn't give a fuck what we did. He made each of us a plate of cake and ice cream on styrofoam plates.
My aunt's living room had 2 entrances into the kitchen, so you could go in a circle. My older (by 9 days) cousin, who is also sleeping over, is chasing my aunt's daughter around the circle. She's a few years younger, we were 8ish, so she was 5 or 6, I'm guessing, and she was such a little tattle tale brat. (She's now homeless and couch hopping after giving up her 2 kids to move to Georgia to live in a motel with a guy she met online)
Anyway, my little cousin's plate caught wind just right and the plate flew up and smacked her right in the face with cake and ice cream. She instantly has a meltdown and starts saying my older cousin did it, he was vehemently denying it, but the sitter was my little cousin's regular sitter and this was his first time meeting my older cousin and I. So here's my little cousin screaming like someone tried to kill her, my older cousin won't stop saying he didn't do it, the babysitter looks like a bear caught in a trap and he's panicking.
I can easily put an end to it, but I'm doubled over laughing so hard I have tears streaming down my face and can barely breath. Every time I calmed down to tell my side I'd look at my cousin with food on her face and I can't help myself, I lose it all over again. The poor sitter had to think we'd all lost it at that point.
To this day, almost 30 years later, I still can't tell the story out loud without losing it, and I do this with a lot of things. Can't get my shit together once I get tickled.
Once I got the giggles in bed like that. We had to stop having sex so I could get myself under control. My husband obviously wasn't this big of a fan of my uncontrollable laughter.
Me and my friends used to tell stories like this in high school. I miss it so much. We would always be laughing at the storyteller who was laughing, and even if what we said turned out to be dumb it was still a hilarious situation.
My one friend Moira was the only one who didn't do this and she'd get hysterically upset and yell "SPIT IT OUT!!" Then we'd laugh even harder.
I just wanted to share the thing I find the funniest in the world. I have it on my phone so if I have a bad time, I watch it and am crying laughing for the thousandth time!
Here is one at the moment.. My 6 and 3 year old are playing hide and seek. 3yo: where are you Sara? Sara(from the living room): I am in my room. 3yo:(standing right in front of her) oh ok. And she just ran uostairs to look for her.. Wa laughed so much.. And than.. 3yo(from Sara's room) : where are you I cant find you. 😂
My sister does this very thing and it is usually much funnier than whatever story she's trying to share
My uncle does this, and my grandfather was the exact same. It sends the rest of us into instant fits of laughter and nobody cares what the original point was.
honestly the sound of someone else genuinely laughing very hard at something always makes me laugh... the pure joy is so infectious i really love the sound of people laughing and making them laugh myself is like an achievement
I just spent 3 minutes pressing the upvote button on the picture. FML
Username checks out.
My fiancé is the same way except with gross out stories. She can’t get 3 sentences in without audibly gagging
A vine/gif of a pink toy squeaking innocently along a table before it explodes.
This is insane because it literally just happened (again).
Do you guys know the CHICKEN LITTLE movie?
So, in my country (Brazil), a lot of older people cannot pronouce that right, so they say "tiquiliro". If you were brazilian and used google, you could easily find the chicken just typing TICO LIRO or TIQUILIRO.
This makes me laugh my ass off, it is insanely funny, my mother in law always say tiquiliro because she knows I will laugh out loud.
My dad was the same way. I still don’t know any of his jokes. It was so endearing. Everyone loved my dad because he could just get anyone to let their guard down and laugh. I’m trying to live up to that example but I don’t think I’m succeeding yet.
I do this as well. I always tell my boyfriend that I'm not sure why he even tries to talk to me about funny stuff.
A woman in my friends group tried to tell us a story about her husband’s ridiculous dream. She had such a hard time telling it because she was laughing so hard, that by the end we were all in stitches and had no clue what she had tried to tell us.
the reactions when ppl smell farts. including me/mine whatevs. just gets me crackin
I wish my wife loved me too ...
I do the exact same thing and I hate it. I'll be trying to tell something hilarious and I won't be able to convey the story at all through my fits of laughter, and it just becomes awkward. The people listening are like "ok...?" It's even worse when I tell the punchline and they don't find it funny. I try not to tell funny stories..
I laugh about the word “sumsebiene” ,which means summing bee in German, every time I hear it. I don’t know what it is but is just sounds so funny to me, I low key think it’s because “sumse” sounds like “bumse” which means to fuck and I have the humor of a 13 year old boy
I've always been told it's annoying :(
