Seriousness in Jokes

Do you sometimes have difficulty in understanding if people are joking or serious? Or whether they understood what you thought were jokes? You may sometimes say something so completely outrageous knowing that it can never be anything but a joke but yet you haver people who look at you with that strange “OMG…how can she say that?” face. It can be quite embarrassing.

On the other spectrum of things, you have people who are too literal and who break down jokes into logical inconsistencies. Like correcting grammar in a sentence, or saying that there’s no way that joke could make any sense. Mostly it gets irritating because you have to explain your joke and that makes it un-funny if you will.

How do you deal with such situations?
