Those make me giggle. Whenever I hate somebody, and want to hurt their feelings, but am too lazy to fight with them I turn to these.
But eh, its not a joke it’s a cleverly disguised insult!

PEOPLE PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING:
People seem to have forgotten what joking is. A man called 911 after finding an infant murdered, stuffed into a sack, and thrown into a lake.
Guy: “I’ve found a dead baby! He’s been mutilated!”
911 operator: “Are you kidding?”
Yes, isn’t it funny?! What could be more funny than a mutilated baby?!
(That was a real call to 911. The guy really said that, the woman really replied stupidly.)

Woman: “Nice haircut! Did you pay for that?! Haha, just kidding!?”
Offended friend: “Oh really? Then you don’t know how to kid properly! Cuz we should both be laughing!”
(That was a bit stolen from Elen’s stand up.)

So what we learn here is…?

Uh...what?
Are jokes half-meant? I think sometimes. Usually I joke with my friends and make fun of them. Sometimes what I say is true or almost true or probably true, but I don't mean any offense.

Yes. Here you either laugh or you fight it out after a bad one.

i think all jokes whole some truth in it. but it's a way of saying it in a less offensive or serious manner.

I don't think they all hold some truth.... I find it funny to call somebody something they obviously aren't as a joke….
Hmm... Well, n0odle, you've just been introduced to a new world of making people feel bad about themselves!

It depends on what kind of jokes you make. You should post examples, so it'll be more easier to understand. some sarcastic jokes like " i hate you"(smiling) and etc, then you half mean it. You make jokes like that because you are actually thinking of it. But it really depends on what kind of jokes

in the words of Avenue Q....

"Ethnic jokes may be uncouth, butcha laugh because they're based on truth. Even though we all know that it's wrong."

Simply hillarious, but the point is still made. The song is more about racism, but the points are made that it wouldn't be funny if you didn't think so a little. It goes on to say that we shouldn't take it personally because we all do it.

In short, yeah, people mean it a little, but just chillax.

(don't get me wrong though, some jokes are just plain wrong >.<)

Not actually sure what half meant means, but usually when ppl say "just kidding/joking" there usually is some truth behind what they say aka. they don't feel like being a complete jerk and insulting face to face but prefer to do it indirectly.
