There is a time and a place for funny. The hard part is that it is always funny to the person making the funny because, well, they know it's supposed to be funny. But when other people don't - well that's when things can get sticky. For example, we all know in wedding ceremonies they ask each participant if they agree to be married. Well, a bride in Austria answered, "No,"
and the officiant broke off the ceremony. The officiant refused to resume the ceremony, and it had to be rescheduled.
