Aside from all the stuff other people saying, I also delight in being surprised.

Predictable jokes bore me.
I enjoy having the "joke" be a twist I did not see coming.

I even laugh good-naturedly when people do or say things I wouldn't have predicted they'd do or say, especially in a given context. It just amuses and pleases me on a deep level.

“I think, therefore Descartes is.” — Saul Steinberg
................................

René Descartes is sitting in a bar. The bartender asks him if he’d like another drink. He says, “I think not” — and vanishes.

........................................

There was a young student called Fred
Who was questioned on Descartes and said:
“It’s perfect clear
That I’m not really here,
For I haven’t a thought in my head.”

– V.R. Ormerod

..................................

Teacher: “If you have seven apples and I asked for three, how many would you have left?”

Pupil: “Seven.”

..........................................

Two communists are sitting on the porch of a nudist colony.

One says, “Have you read Marx?”

The other says, “Yes, I think it’s these wicker chairs.”

.........................................

The only problem
with haiku is that you just
get started and then

— Roger McGough

.......................................

“I saw a big rat in my cook-stove and when I went for my revolver he ran out.”

“Did you shoot him?”

“No. He was out of my range.”

– The Pun Book, 1906

...............................

A neutron walks into a bar and orders a beer.

“How much do I owe you?” he says.

“For you,” says the bartender, “no charge.”

.......................................

A guy is sitting at home when there’s a knock at the door.

He opens it and there’s a snail sitting on the doorstep.

He picks up the snail and throws it as far as he can.

Three years later the guy is sitting at home and there’s a knock at the door.

He opens it and the same snail is sitting on the doorstep.

The snail says, “What the hell was that about?”

Random thoughts at the worst of times. Most frequently at places like funerals.
Me too, although probably not at funerals. When someone is talking to me seriously, I frequently imagine them doing something inappropriate and it often takes every resolve I have not to break out laughing.
