When I first saw this sentence I started laughing uncontrollably........ and I don't know why.


What type of humor are treated or counted as a DARK HUMOR? Please clarify.

    It's also called gallows humour, meaning that the subject matter turns around death and illness.


    Thanks Peter, your explanation helps. Muito obrigado.


    a dog walks into a bar, shows the bartender a picture, and says "I'm looking for the man who shot my pa!" is that light or dark?


    A man cheats on his girlfriend Lorraine with a woman named Clearly. Lorraine dies suddenly. At the funeral, the man stands up and sings, "I can see Clearly now, Lorraine is gone."


    I don't get this.


    that's because he told it poorly :) the version i've heard is: why did the dog go to the sheriff's office? because somebody shot his paw! you're supposed to say it with a southern accent, so paw sounds like pa, another word for father.


    Cute cat. Looks like my Lola. :)


    Someone needs to notify DL to stop blocking words like negr0, because it's not offensive in other languages!

      Don't need drugs for dark humour.


      Lols, must admit I did a bit of a double take. I keep forgetting that negro= the colour black and yes, that word is a corruption of this.


      Wrong bro Preto=Black ❤❤❤❤❤ means Dark. Uma Viela Negra= A Dark Alley. Or Obscuro is also used for a shaded or dark area.


      Right out of dictionary:

      ❤❤❤❤❤ adjective, masculine (negra f sl, negros m pl, negras f pl)

      black adj (almost always used) less common: dark adj · bleak adj

      Her humor is so dark, the police shot it without warning. Her humor is so dark, it craving fried chicken and watermelon on a daily basis.


      Black –or dark– humor is not the same as racist humor, which is no humor at all.


      dark humor is like food, some don't get it
