What Makes Me Laugh

OK, here's the thing about laughter. You can't train yourself to laugh or not laugh. Sometimes it just happens, and it happens in a way that is highly embarrassing. Tonight I was flipping through the channels with my wife, and I stopped on a film. There was a joke in the movie that made me laugh so hard I almost lost consciousness. I looked at Bridget while I was choking, and I could see her losing respect for me. Why was she losing respect? Because of the joke, and because of the movie it was in. Here is the joke...

Character 1: I don't want to be indelicate, but does your friend have Aspergers?

Character 2: Probably. He doesn't wipe too well.

The movie was Dumb & Dumber To.

I'm deeply ashamed.
