Well I'm not sure what type of humor belongs this - idiocy? -, but this type is what I like the most, and I've noticed that this counts for the majority of people too. Here it is pretty obvious what is going on, there's no real plot, no surprises, and the characters are not real flesh & blood persons either, that is, they don't behave like normal people. Because of this it is hardly believable something like this could happen. And I think that, when you read it, you imagine how it is happening, and it is funny because of the fact people don't behave that way.me- sure is a buitiful day for a battle, aye geneal?
General- ChEeSe Is FuN? *drool*
me- haha, good one general, acting like a idiot to trick our enemies eye?
General- WERE ar mey PANTS??!!
me- DAMN, this man is a genius!! Trying to act like he has no idea that in the following battle he could die a horrible death.
I mean, to describe brutal wars like a bunch of drunken men having a party is hilarious. Or describe kings acting as sissies. Or connect two different stories, like in the case of Splangy, story A has finished in 1540, and story B starts in 1530 with the characters from story A escaping to story B, and explaining this as the "difference in time zones".
Me-OK! We made a little boo-boo back in Saxony but nothing can stop my destiny! We can now get back to buiseness, in MY brand spankin new country, Bisantum!
Advisor-BOO-BOO?!? You led hundreds of thousands of inocent people to there deaths for your own ego! And how can it be 1492? Saxony fell in the 1540's for christ sake! And its not Bisantum, it Byzantium.
Me-First of all they wouldn't have died if my army could fight off a flock of pidgeons! Secondly, your too stupid to understand but theres a time difference between countrys . Thirdly I dont care what its called! Now, tell me of my new country and all its splendor!
Anyway, saying a lot of stupid things is funny for most people, although I've never seen a truly long story written in this style. Arilou's Legacy of the White Sheep approaches it, but he's still sane enough not to write complete nonsense and ruin the story (and make it funnier for a moment)
