It's light hearted, but that's not the same as funny. I think the main reason it's not funny to me is that humour generally needs an element of surprise, the unexpected. These jokes don't do that for me, they're trite.

As for what's funny to me, my occasional posts in the spam and meme threads should give you an idea but if I come across a good example I'll post it here

Actually, here is one (although not mine):

where is the surprise?..ducks fly no surprise ok gate damaged, so that's the joke... had ducks in the UK and had to clipped their wings, as they were not bought up in the wild, so pets, special pets, although when they bred one of our chickens sat for the duration of, to hatching then we took over....

Jokes to me are so varied..take the UK CarryOn films..loads and loads of them, funny to me as is the late Kenny Everett....when you can laugh at yourself though your a winner....that's is not so easy really.

People completely missed the sick joke over the beer can scare crow..all about how man is destroying the land....Jokes come in many forms and you have decided you know my humour from just a couple of examples....no way, never been that shallow.

wut, I never said such a thing
Don't take the surprise thing too literally, it's hard to explain but in the case of the duck example I mean the connection between the picture and the correlation vs. causality principle is apt but surprising and just the right amount of absurd. There are many exceptions to that though, like you said humour comes in many forms. And I agree that laughing at yourself is great and very important

Think Marvel Universe + Angry Duck.

The scarecrow/litter one I wouldn't label a joke if it was multiple choice.
Much more satire imo.

This is funny.

The sheer amount of "wife bad" cartoons you post mark you clearly as a boomer.

Well that's true, except misogynist teenage boys probably like wife bashing jokes too

Comedy is definitely universal - take America, for instance.
