Just go on being less-than-kinda-funny to everyone else and amusing yourself.
It's not just funny to myself. I know plenty of people who have different comic sensibilities who like the kind of things I do. It's very arrogant of you to think that everybody has your taste. Comedy is subjective, there are no "right" and "wrong" ways to make a comic strip. Just because fewer people think something is funny doesn't mean it should be dismissed as being crap. People are morons.
No, you're right. The last things someone attempting comedy should be is smart or witty.
You miss my point. I know a lot of people who use comedy to perpetuate some kind of image of themselves. Like they are more interested in looking like a bad-ass so they'll use a lot of shitty "shock" humor or something like that. Part of my humor is to make myself part of the joke. you can BE smart or witty, without trying to make yourself LOOK smart or witty.
I can't come to the phone right now, because I got banned.
