Awkward Turtle…

Don’t you just hate it when you have a hilarious story and you tell it and get an awkward silence in response? It seems to happen to me a lot. For example, I’ll say something like (I’ll just write the punchlines here):
“And then he said, ‘But they didn’t like pork anyway, they were vegetarians!’ ”
or
“And then the pineapple was all like ‘RAWR! CITRUS!’ “
And the person I’m telling will just look at me and half shake their head, almost in disbelief that I could tell a story so lame. Of course, there are certain people who will get the stories, like Toong will get the top one, and my TOMs team will get the second one, but to the general population they’re just weird.
To make the situation less awkward I end up having to say ‘I guess you had to be there?’ and change the subject really quickly.
The worst part is I’m the only one who ever seems to do this. I am never on the receiving end of awkward jokes, so either:
a) I find lame things funny
or
b) I’m the only loser who can’t tell a story.
A lot of the time I make out I have this epic story but half way through realise how lame it is so I pretend I’ve forgotten the end of it. That just makes me look dumb, which in a way is almost worse.
I honestly don’t think I’ve ever told a funny story and received the reaction I was hoping for. Future comedian? I think not.
Please tell me I’m not the only one who fails like this?
