Ever make up a joke that you really liked, only the person you said it to didn't find it so funny? No? You mean it's just me? Great...

I with with a group of people most of whom had just seen X3. One of the women responded to criticism of the movie by saying plaintively, "I like the X-Men!"

I saw the opening and went for it: "Well, I believe most of her boyfriends are ex-men!" Some of the other people thought it was pretty funny, but the woman in question... not so much.

Okay, it's not Oscar Wilde (except in an indirect sense), but I was really hoping for more than a glowering smirk.

Okay, you're right. Now that I've re-read it, it's a crappy joke. So sue me. In the words of Wayne Gretzky, "You miss 100% of the shots you don't take." There. I feel better now.
