I'd say sarcasm which I probably picked up from my dad who has a sarcastic, smart-ass sense of humor.

Mine is a cross of sadism and sarcastic.

well... if the Black Knight in Monty Python and the Holy grail counts as slapstick, then yes.

I clicked irony, but I mean sarcasm  ::)

I voted "other".  My preferred type of humour is in-jokes.  My stack of flapjacks with a pirate hat is not absurdism, it is an in-joke.  Since you do not get it, I laugh at you.

Har har har.

Hear how I laugh?  I laugh heartily.  Etc. :)

Note: Yes, there was a good dose of sarcasm in this post, and I thought it somewhat funny, but still not as funny as the glorious in-joke.

Another Note: Where is the option for pun?

It's a play on words. Here's an example: Don't be saucy with me Bernaise. Bernaise is a type of sauce.

Jep, looked up the meaning in a dictonary.
