I think the award winning duo Key and Peele are genius . Still they are off beat and controversial. AS lynny says and a few pvt messages they are certainly not for everyone.
It got me thinking how diverse humour is.
Now I am really going to rock the boat.
DUCK FOR COVER.
Your worse night mare
In case you dont know the most divisive joke of all...peach for a head. I am posting it.
I love this joke but my prediction is NO ONE on silver peers will like this or get it.
Its an anti joke and I think hilarious.
Ellen and Matthew suggest fifty per cent of the population love this joke.
I have seen people keel over laughing. and other friends look at me with a strong WTF?
Watch Ellen and Matthew if you dare.

http://www.nbcnews.com/id/3077386/ns/te ... ts6NDozbIUContrary to folk wisdom, most laughter is not about humor; it is about relationships between people. To find out when and why people laugh, I and several undergraduate research assistants went to local malls and city sidewalks and recorded what happened just before people laughed. Over a 10-year period, we studied over 2,000 cases of naturally occurring laughter.
We found that most laughter does not follow jokes. People laugh after a variety of statements such as “Hey John, where ya been?” “Here comes Mary,” “How did you do on the test?” and “Do you have a rubber band?”. These certainly aren’t jokes.
We don’t decide to laugh at these moments. Our brain makes the decision for us. These curious “ha ha ha’s” are bits of social glue that bond relationships.
Curiously, laughter seldom interrupts the sentence structure of speech. It punctuates speech. We only laugh during pauses when we would cough or breathe.
