Interwebs: Please Take Note:


[hi-lair-ee-uhs, -lar-, hahy-]



arousing great merriment; extremely funny: a hilarious story; a hilarious old movie.


boisterously merry or cheerful: a hilarious celebration.

Hilarious: Arousing great merriment, extremely funny. In other words, when something is hilarious you laugh out loud until your fucking sides hurt.

Unforunately, most of you seem to have 'hilarious' mixed up with 'mildy amusing' or 'not funny at all' IE: Hilarious Cat Video!!!1!!!

For my sanity (and your own safety)
can you please stop labeling everything
that you consider to be slightly amusing as 'hilarious', because it's invariably not funny, it devalues the word and it really fucking annoys me.

For example:

Lolcats = Mildly Amusing.

Jokes that started being passed around in the 80's by fax machine = Kinda funny if you've been living under a rock for thirty years.

All those annoying people who set up websites that consist of nothing but 'humorous' content they've stolen from other sites that have also stolen their content from other sites being attacked by a pack of incredibly angry gorillas = Hilarious.

Thank you for your time.

Dare i ask what brought that post on?

........Never Mind- I'll find out when I get home.

And btw- isn't what's funny subjective to each individual?? Not everything you think is funny makes me laugh- and vice-versa.

It's different strokes for different folks.
