So we have an Italian exchange student at our school. And he and I were hanging out and he saw a pony, and he tried to show me but he didn’t know what it was called so he just pointed at it and said “Look, the compressed horse.”
And then he just grinned at his complete understanding of the English language.
It is impossible to imagine a color

because she makes me panic. When I
say I am crying what I really mean
is that I want to cry but can’t. Instead
of dying, the jellyfish simply ceases

HE GRABS THE CUP BUT THEN HE DROPS THE PEN 0.0003 SECONDS LATER
AND HE LOOKS UP AT THE CEILING INSTEAD OF AT THE GROUND WHEN HE CAN’T FIND THEM
Oh my god, it’s not even that he accidentally drops it, he just purposely let’s go of them, expecting for them to float in the air while he goes about his business.
There are many other differences between the two that are not covered by this comic - for example, humour is ultimately controlled (like everything else) by the society we live in, so some things will fall flat as a piece of “dark comedy” because they resonate too closely with society’s discomforts or issues. Nothing exists in a vaccum, and free speech is not an excuse to make people view your artwork is if it does.
Humour isn’t as simple as you’d think! It’s a complex thing and can be difficult to understand, and if you are interested I reccomend researching popular dark comedy movies and series and expanding your knowledge!
