The Wife just sent me this email:
donner kebab, and Battlestar Galactica. Tonight. Awwww, yeah.
To which I replied (hyperlinks added for clarity):
And she didn't get it! Arrrrggggghhhhh! It's hard to be sure, but I think that may be the funniest thing I've ever written. I mean, how often does a setup like that come along? Once a decade? And I was there—I was all over it—but, alas, it was all for nothing without an appreciative audience.
P.S. We're in Leipzig. Capsule review: everything here is all...German.

"Donner, party of four..."
Hey, I thought it was funny. And now with twice the irony, as donner is actually one of the alternate spellings from your Wikipedia link.
Now I'm all hungry...
And here I was thinking about an unfortunate reindeer -- On Donner! On Blitzen! What would you like on Donner? Hot sauce? Tzatziki?
Brilliant. Don't worry, though. You don't get to pick your audience.
Bwa-hahahahaha! I laughed!
I found it quite amusing as well.
I wonder if there is a word/term for that. When you tell a wonderful joke and the audience does not get it.

Brilliant! I was raised to jump all over pun opportunities like that, and I am very sad *I* didn't get to say it.
I've been trying to think of a word for the gap between a joke and its audience for the anonymous commenter up there, but the closest I can come is "sarchasm: the distance between the meaning of a sarcastic statement and the person who does not get it." An excellent word, but not quite right.
then maybe u should try a little bit more to make people laugh to your little jokes iight donner if that's your real name so by donner..lol
