Yes, humor is in the eye of the beholder. That is why I always avoid reacting to comments by others unless I clearly understand them.

Jon's rejoinder to my comments, which were in jest, were insulting. If Jon did not understand the real meaning of the comment, better to keep his mouth shut, IMO. Perhaps his native language is not English, but that is no excuse for nasty insults.

Hi Mr. Jon,

I see  your sense of humor is about 2 on a scale  of 0-100.

Thanks for your comments.

Unfortunately humor, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. Especially in print humor or wit is often lost even when people know each other well. Not only in print-- I've learned to be very careful of wit because it can so easily be misinterpreted or even be hurtful. For myself I would much rather be thought a bit dull than get those strange looks from those who don't understand or have been inadvertently hurt.
