it all makes sense now

Fun Fact: Witzelsucht is a rare disease characterized by someone who can’t stop making puns, saying inappropriate jokes, or telling pointless stories when it’s socially unacceptable.

Well… I’m feeling pretty validated right now because I finally have an answer for all the times I couldn’t help but tell an inappropriate story in a room full of strangers, only to be met with eyes of glaring judgment. Or share some terribly cliche puns about farting at the ripe age of 29. From now on, every time someone questions my sense of humor, calls me tasteless, or points out that I’m unladylike… I’m going to refer them to this post.


So, guys… I have a condition. (Thanks for pointing it out) There are times I must tell you my stories about yellow snow, farting, blow jobs, and experiences of hump-happy dogs. Don’t be offended by my tales. Just blame it on the Witzelsucht.

    Oh, my goodness! It feels *sooooo* good now that someone has finally gone and Sucht on my Witzel. I feel discovered. Renewed. Refreshed. . . . Unloaded. I believe in multiple Witzelsucht. To be honest, though, I thought a reasonable diagnosis was Housemania.

    So I was all like “Yea there’s a reasoning this way!” because I was just horrifying people at a Christmas party. Ya know how that goes. Then I looked it up and it’s caused by brain lesions and/or tumors. Less excited now.

    When I stopped by the allergy clinic today to get my weekly allergy shots I noticed a used condom laying in the parking lot amongst the regular puddles of melting snow and remnants of the still yet to melt dirt brown colored snow. It was disgusting, obviously, but I thought who has sex in the parking lot of an allergy clinic?!? Or, does someone, upon arriving for their allergy shots, randomly dump it thinking “oh yeah, this pesky used condom just sitting here in my cup holder has GOTS to go and this is as good a place as any!?” So as I’m thinking of these things as I make my way across the parking lot I think hey, I should tell my allergist there is a used condom in her parking lot. Then I follow up that thought with, why? Do I expect her to send someone out to pick it up? Do I expect her to say “oh yeah that was mine, wondered where I left it” or do I simply feel the driving need to share inappropriate information with people?

    Thanks to your post I now have my answer. 😉

    Wait… since when is it not appropriate to tell stories about yellow snow, blowjobs, farting and humping dogs?

    I think there is an internet version of this condition where people can’t help but speak only in memes (which I believe has replaced the pun as the lowest form of humor)….

    I definitely have the W disease. My lovely friend presented my husband with a bottle of wine tonight. The wine had a little knitted hat on it and I couldn’t resist pointing out, inappropriately, that it looked like a willy warmer. “KERRY!’, was the response… Merry Christmas inappropriate friend.

    When I first read this, my eyes just skimmed over the name of the disease. I seem to have a bad tendency to ignore medical/technical words. And then at the end of the post I was like – Wait. Is that witzel sucht. So I guess I qualify for the disease too 😛

    Oh god, the hump-happy dog stories. I not only tell them, but I get out my phone and try to force people to look at the pictures. Why don’t people get how hilarious this is?

    As always, you made me laugh! Pretty sure if they still have that comedian tv show where people auditioned, you’d win! Your wit is totally relatable yet still a bit of “pop came out my nose when I read it” type hilarious! Love this blog! 🙂

    I believe there’s a support group: PUN: Particularly Unruly Nuts and they meet in large groups that aren’t anonymous so other people can watch them so they can draw attention to themeselves. The 12-steps are actual steps that they climb up on top of a table so they can jump up and down on and tell jokes and fart and act silly. I know these things because I was chapter president of a local group for a bit until I was laughed out. You have to have pre-requisites like ‘class clown’, being sent to the vice-principal’s office constantly, being disruptive, not making honor society for lack of teacher’s vote (you may have the grade average) because you were a pain in the butt. A star member was George Carlin…. we all need to follow his lead. He did a piece years ago on being the class clown….I was very young, but he inspired me to be one ever after…..!! Carry on!
