Least Funny CountriesNo sense for humor, always being serious and doing your work. These are countries with the least funny citizens in the world.
I think it has a lot to do with Germans not being very open, especially with other people of other cultures. A typical German will most likely not joke with you unless you've been friends with them for quite some time. They seem to find jokes about stereotypes very funny (but only about other countries! ), and I noticed that many find it funny when someone makes a mistake, fails at something, or hurts themselves. I think they just have a different sense of humor from many other countries. Their television shows and movies are notoriously bland and unfunny as well. When I was living in Germany the only thing watchable on T.V. were the US movies and sitcoms shown on T.V.. I do remember that when the Germans had a few beers, they would finally open up a little and be a little more funny... Maybe the answer is beer...
I agree. They are like that but I still love Germany and Germans more than almost anything. My country, America, comes first of course, but Germany is second. They really are serious. My best friend, Til, is from Germany and is incedibly smart, and cane be extremely funny, but it is just rare. He is always concentrating on his work and what he is doing and never goofing off like my other friends.
Along with the Dutch, Germans are the most painfully dull, unfunny people on the planet. Every single German and Dutch person I've had the misfortune of meeting have been incredibly boring, unlikeable and arrogant. I now actively try avoid them. They will literally lower your quality of life.
Germans are deadly serious and don't seem to have any sense of humor. They show no emotions. They do not laugh most of the time, but instead of being funny they're really efficient, the result being the world's 3rd largest economy. But nevertheless I adore Germans.
North Korea's population as of February 18th, 2017 is 25,360,273.
North Korea is the third most corrupt country in the world, according to the CPI (Corruption Perceptions Index). It is also ranked 150th out of 163 nations in the Institution for Economics & Peace's Global Peace Index, making it one of the most dangerous countries in the world.
North Korea is said by many international organizations to have severe violations of human rights, citing their strict laws, prison camps (of which 40% of prisoners die from malnutrition), and having public executions and forced admittance of guilt for false crimes. ...read more.
My friend lives in South Korea and he can't even fly near North Korea or they will shoot down the plane.
People in North Korea are only allowed to laugh if Kim Jong-Un makes a joke.
Same as Iran, with the differnece of North Korea being America's enemy number 1!
Who is the President of the North Korea?
They almost can't be blamed for being so dour. Had a pretty rough history. Are easier to deal with when they are drunk.
Only time Russia can be funny is when they fall part through the power of the people, damn commies...
Not as serious as the Germans, but still serious, they can only laugh when they drunk Vodka.
This Russian girl I sit next to thinks the dumbest jokes are funny. They're awful.
Pakistani comedy is gold. Shafaat Ali's voice impressions are gold. Comedy in drama serials is gold. Pakistan is only on this rank here because people don't know any positive things about it so to call it "least funny" is kinda lame, just judging by your ignorance..-__-
Jokes on the lists' modifier because clearly you're wrong. Switch off CNN, Fox or whatever BS you're watching and watch Eva Zu Beck instead. Ta.
Come and visit here, we will let you realize what you see on T.V. and what you hear on News is nothing. we love each other. We love humanity we love every being on planet earth from east to west south to north.. Stay blessed all. we love you.
Worst terrorist beggar country with a lot of retarded inbred peacefuls.
Of course is not true! I'm an Iranian person and you should know that in Iran people always lough just for no reason! And all the people in every hours are outside and having fun and even the coffee shop close at 3:00 am
People really misunderstood this list and think it is "America's N.1 Enemies".
Often considered as one of the evil powers in the world, enemy No.2 of the USA.
Not true. The same case for Germany and Pakistan. Nome of them are sirious and they are even funny.
Colonel Gaddafi ruled this country, but the lybian people will regain their emotions.
As a Venezuelan guy I must say Venezuelan humor is maybe one of the worsts sense of humor in Latin America, people here really don't know how to make a joke, besides is very often that people makes jokes with you when you don't know that person enough to make joke with you, and I find that arrogant.
Hugo Chavez has vanished the smiles out of it's people by threatening the USA with an attack.
Its always funny to see idiots killing each other, like last week I saw a man who got shot because he thought he was funny! That was such a laugh haha!
Now a days the country change in many different fields the country now in westernized process, many things was unnormal became normal.
may god bless Saudi Arabia and the countries.
The same as Turkey and Pakistan with the difference of Saudi-Arabia being more open to the world.
I am Turkish, and I can agree with the previous poster. Our excessive binding to our own religion can end up in something extremely horrifying if you also consider our very much strict and poor education system.
Many people over here are also so full of themselves, so worried about 'looking cool' that many of them end up being way too boring and someone that you would not choose to hang our with at all.
The religious influence makes them really serious and they do not understand jokes when talking about their religion.
I don't see how is America in the top their clearly one of the funniest countries they not only have the worlds greatest comedians but also make the funniest movies and jokes.
Serious and anti-social, but when you get to make friends with them, they can be very very nice and funny. All in all good people.
Influenced by the Germans, but they can still laugh and show emotions.
Should be on top!
India has people from thousands of race, caste, color, religion. Only people of similar kind become funny with each other. I hate my country. It is actually most racist country in the world. 1000% Hypocrites, dumb ass holes. If they do not agree they will blame others. The media create sad and fake news all the time.
"Now, they will blame that I am north indian or south indian or they will say I am Pakistani"
Haha no, I don't know about the WHOLE COUNTRY but in my area, people are hilarious! I seriously can't stop laughing when I talk to anybody, and they too laugh a lot!
Some one steel my camera in India. All history of visit was gone along with old memories. and what he left behind camera charger. I was really pissed off why he left charger behind. very bad experience
You will laugh whole life if you visit Khumbh gathering. Naked old and young for bath early morning. crazy to enter into river same like African animals enters.
People here have no sense of humor. Everything is centered around getting as much money as possible and getting as much work done as possible. All this is a result of the high standard and cost of living in Singapore (Singapore is officially the world's MOST expensive city now)
It's nice though the people are too introverted. The people usually don't make jokes which is why I didn't get liked by my friends in 2014.
I agree because most of American people just think about their job and always try to save it and don't pay attention to another things like their families or travel most. Also they have to pay attention to their job because in America you should work and have job to save your house and your family.
Don't you think?
Ok then foreign people, what do you find funny? Trying to be rude to Americans? Thinking that all the humor in the USA are childish is wrong, the humor is diverse here, just like culture, personalities, and weight (not everyone in the USA is fat by the way)
Just about all Americans I've ever met love comedy films, sitcoms, romcoms, etc but can't seem to process any information fed to them as a joke unless it's coming to them from a T.V. screen.
They lack the wit and subtlety that British and Australian humour encompasses. Most of their talk shows seem scripted unlike the Graham Norton Show.
The supreme overlord/Governor Genera/Military Dictator banned a sense of humor in New Zealand. NAHH JK, but seriously, Australians live under a monarch (Tsar since it's a socialist/communist state) and they laugh at everything. Most ME Gulf Countries have great senses of humor actually, except for Saudi Arabia, but they're kinda the Ann Coutler of Arab Countries, very right leaning, so...
New Zealanders on nthe other hand, nnot so much...we barely have a sense of humor. General Zakharchenko pretty much banned it altogether XD. JK, He didn't but our society is just very serious as we're predominantly Eastern European/Slavic Descent.
Kiwis do not have a sense of humor, they love to laugh at others but not themselves. It's not that hard though, I'd laugh at myself if I had a NZ accent.
