Humour vocabulary! Part-3

Here are some more words to our Humour vocabulary.

internet  n"The death of the idea that your cat was special."

gallows humour  n.  a joke that may cause one to die laughing.

In 1874, Alferd Packer and his party were caught in a snowstorm in the Colorado Rocky Mountains.  When he was finally rescued, the rest of the party was dead, and Packer was found to have dined on fillet of friend.  At the murder trial- before Packer was found guilty- the judge reportedly yelled at him, "There were only seven democrats in all of Hindsdale County, and you ate five of them!"  In honour of the state's favorite cannibal, the University of Colorado Boulder named its cafeteria the Alferd Packer Restaurant & Grill.  It motto: Serving All of Mankind.
