What is Dark Humor?

Dark humor is all about making fun of the worst parts of life. It can be rude and offensive most of the time since it makes light of taboo or uncomfortable subjects like death, abuse, racism, sexism, poverty, etc.

Laughing at dark jokes doesn’t necessarily make people evil, though. People who appreciate dark humor jokes may actually be more intelligent than the average person. They’re able to process a dark joke’s multiple meanings and create emotional distance from it, allowing them to have less negative and aggressive reactions to it than people who don’t like dark jokes.
