if there’s dry humor why isn’t there wet humor?

In: Culture

In this case, “dry” is not being used the way you think it is. Dry has many definitions, one of which is:

> marked by matter-of-fact, ironic, or terse manner of expression

Dry humor is humor that is matter-of-fact or terse, rather than “free or relatively free from a liquid” (one of the other definitions). Just like how “blue” can mean the color _or_ the feeling of sadness, dry can mean different things depending on context.

This has potential for a r/showerthoughts post. Maybe wet humor is NSFW humor? Haha
