Wild Humor

My brothers and I have a sort of dry humor we usually call Wild Humor.  Though our mother loved a good laugh to the point of breathlessness, we maintain our sense of humor comes from our dad who was quietly witty, loved puns and irony, and had a laid back humble delivery.  It often appears to be unintentional due to its calm and straightforward approach, rather the opposite of slapstick.

I bring this up now because I'm home editing a document for work and occasionally check my email for diversion.  Dave sent me a recipe for Red Lentils and Kale with Miso.  Always interested in healthy eating I replied that I want to try it but have never cooked with miso.
Dave said, "Miso either."
I said, "I'm SOUPrised."
Dave said, "You're pulling my LEGume."
I said, "Stop! You're KALEing me."

I suspect we could have gone on all day but we have work to do.  Not an LOL in the bunch but we were sufficiently amused.  : )

The recipe that started the banter

:) We Wilds do have our own unique brand of funny, don't we?
