fopylo Posted June 5, 2022 Share Posted June 5, 2022 (edited) Hey, so I am not here to judge whether it is good or bad, but I tend to always be the person targeted for jokes' sake. In every social group I am in I have found a reoccurring pattern - I, my name and personality, tend to be used very often in social groups for jokes (as well as inside jokes) and I get all that attention. Back in high school I was known as a sorta funny floaty person (like that I forget things, sometimes late, kinda stupid lol). At camp it really really peaked: My birthday was like 3 days into camp (no one really knew no one) and the whole camp (we were divided into 2 groups) sang every second of the day happy birthday and every time they saw me. Then it became a joke and starting singing happy birthday to me on days that weren't my birthday, and the funniest is that on other people's birthdays they sang to me as well lmao. But that is quite small. My humor has shot up (perhaps I was feeling more comfortable in this new environment), but I was literally like the clown of camp, made lots of stupid jokes, asked questions that made people laugh, behaved in a funny way, and lots of jokes have been built on me, so basically my name was quite famous in the camp because of the attention it had. I have also been the drunkest in 3 parties of the camp and people remember them well lol. But here's the thing: Today I met up with some friends from my town (friends I didn't see in quite a long time) and it was really fun and jokes, I really enjoyed my time. We played the game Quiplash and my name was used quite often as answers (the whole idea of the game is that before the game starts you are given 2 questions/fill in the blank in which you need to fill an answer, and the goal is to make it the funniest because two people are given the same question and then compete for votes anonymously). But seriously, it's not like camp that I was traveling with them or lived with them enough time for making inside jokes and having my name get attention. They just for some reason thought laughing at me was the most fun, I guess. My question is why is it happening to me? Is it because I give some sort of vibe that makes people comfortable laughing at me? Am I attracting lots of attention in the heat of fun? Am I perhaps showing signs of weakness and people utilize it for joking about me? What am I attracting for God's sake? It is literally a reoccurring pattern which is quite freaky. Sometimes it's jokes about me in the heat of fun and sometimes it's laughing at my weaker points, but I guess it's how I take it. Perhaps I am just good at taking jokes? But how could they know it before joking about me? And why don't they joke just as much about the other people?
