Tricky Dick and Deepthroat

I was in my US History class when my teacher mentioned two people by the names of Tricky Dick and Deepthroat. Come to find out That Tricky Dick was Richard Nixon (referencing Watergate). And later we found out that Deepthroat was the man who busted Richard Nixon. Is it normal not to laugh at the joke when everyone else in the class was laughing? Although it wasn't a joke.

Is It Normal?
Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

      • I was in a department store a couple years ago when I heard an announcement, "will Mr. Miehoff please meet your party at the service desk. Jack Miehoff.....", and then the intercom went dead as the girl realized what she had said! Everywhere I looked people, guys and girls, were all looking around and snickering, enjoying the joke that had been played on the innocent girl on the intercom.

  • Haha. That's Funny. I Didn't Know About Deep Throat. That's Quite Funny. Basically It's Quite Normal To Laugh At Jokes That Sound Funny.

    Not All Jokes Come In The Form Of, "Knock, Knock," Or "What Do You Call." Basically This Is A Pun.

    It's A Word That Has A Very Funny Meaning, And A Very Nonfunny Meaning.

    If You Ask me,
    Your Too Normal.

    Ha!

    • ... Is there a particular reason you capitalize each word? I'm just wondering, cuz for some reason that is irritating the shit out of me, to the point where I kind of want to stab myself in both eyes. I'm not mad or anything, just all of a sudden really damn bothered by that.

      • Most programmers write a lot of code and this is a tale tale sing. Whenever you want to declare a name of say String whyCaps = “why you do that”; then you make it look like that. However this is just a wild guess but I know I do it from time to time.

  • CONGRATS!!!! I don't find it funny at all. My favorite subject in school is World History and I learned this last year. Then again it could be because I'm a girl and it was mostly the boys who laughed, but still. You're just more mature, nothing to be ashamed of:)

  • Totally normal.
    My history teacher wouldnt DARE to talk about something like that, seeing as how most of my class is very immature and would probably be kicked out of classes for talking about "dicks" and "throats" combined. LOL!
    I dont even think my history teacher could talk about that with a straight face, let alone anyone with a sense of humor.

    Dont worry about it, everyone in your class is just a little too serious.
    Its better to take humor out of something and enjoy it than just be serious about everything.

  • To above commenters: congratulations, fourteen-year-olds. You've proven that you are eminently qualified for employment at McDonald's. Reason: having no knowledge whatsoever. Enjoy.

    If normal is defined as that behavior in which the majority of eleventeen-year-olds engage, then, no, not laughing isn't normal. I, however, salute you for not laughing. If people actually understood this shit, they wouldn't be laughing. How many people are laughing at the 2000 presidential election (besides those in the Bush administration)?

  • Wait, you didn't laugh? I don't think that's abnormal at all, nor would i think it abnormal to laugh at it, i mean it is kind of funny. so either way, in my opinion, you are a perfectly normal person...though i'm sure you have your own little quirks, as do we all

    Comment Hidden ( show )
  • Haha, reminds me of when I learned about it. I didn't get it because I didn't know what deepthroating was, and I wasn't that familiar with the term "dick," either. Mostly though, it was because I was two years ahead so all the kids in the class were older, and English isn't my first language and I was still trying to fully grasp it.

    But if you don't know what deepthroating is, like I didn't, it's not a big deal that you didn't find it funny.

  • Richard Nixon was a good president. He created the EPA, opened relations with China and got us out of Vietnam. Ignore the haters of Nixon. This was a time when the liberal media had all the power. There was no talk radio, no Internet and no fair and balanced TV networks to give both sides of issues like there are today. If Nixon would of come clean immediately on Watergate, it would of been no big deal. Fifty years from now...Nixon will rate a much better president than the current administration.

  • I guess I am an old fart but I thought these names were more widely known. Deepthroat was NOT "the man who busted Richard Nixon". He merely supplied some information to the Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward during their investigation of the unethical/illegal activities of the Nixon administration. When Nixon ran for congress in the 1940's his opponent coined the term "tricky dick" in part to counter his claims the she was "Pink right down to her underwear" (I.e. a communist).

    I just get really pissed off.

    Mostly because all of the peopole laughing are virgins; litterally I canhonstly say none of them even know what deep thraoting is.

  • I say, it depends on your sense of humor, not your maturity. I've got bi-polar maturity... I can be mature and immature. I'd probably laugh at that too. But it's perfectly fine if you didn't laugh; if you didn't find it funny, you didn't find it funny. That's all there is to it.

  • So, you don’t find perverted lines funny. It only shows you are more mature than that. But high-school IS a joke anyway. I’d go ahead any laugh when I can, it feels better. Yeah, I didn’t used to think something like that was funny, but the world has messed with me.

  • You are right, it wasn't funny. You are the head of the class.

    The teacher makes him/herself look like a fool for being so heavily partisan and biased in a classroom setting.

    But I am certainly not defending Richard E Nixon!
