Today, I was told that when I was in middle school and thought I was considered class clown for either making jokes or acting stupid, people thought I actually was stupid and/or mentally challenged. FML

Some people just aren't funny no matter how much they want to be

Either you're an extremely gifted actor, or they may have assumed right. YDI. Seriously, there's no humor in acting like an idiot. People that think otherwise are why we have kids thinking it's "cool" to be/act stupid, and doing so rather than trying to better themselves intellectually.

Are you sure you aren't mentally challenged? I mean there must have been some sign that you weren't as funny as you thought you were. I suppose it can be difficult though to tell the difference between being laughed at and laughed with.

Stupid is as stupid does

I mean, when you think it's an achievement to be the class clown in middle school...

Sorry OP. Seems humor isn't your thing...

YDI. People who are the class clown types are jackasses. Be "funny" on your own time. Especially if you were so bad at it that people thought you were mentally-challenged.

YDI. More often than not the designated "class clown" is obnoxious and disruptive, and rarely actually funny.
