Things That Are NOT Funny

While there are many things in life that I find funny, for instance most everything, but there are some things which I do not find funny.

Examples include:
Cats which like me even though I don't like them
People who drive 2 miles an hour under the speed limit
Napoleon Dynamite; though I find quoting it hilarious. Not sure how that works but there it is.

But chief among these things this week is the phrase "that's funny". Specifically when uttered by a banker as a response to having examined my account and been unable to determine why my paycheck wasn't posting properly and why I was unable to pay bills using my account. I'm fairly certain my banker doesn't really understand how humor works. I wonder if this failure to grasp humor is common to bankers. Maybe the whole financial crisis in Washington is actually an attempt at humor by government accountants and bankers. Fortunately the issue seems to have been resolved and banking balance has been restored it the universe. Well to my account any way. America is still basically a scrawny nerd with a fat kid on the other end of the see-saw.
