Not funny.
Pronouncing b3ta as 'bay-ta' rather than 'bee-ta'.

As I'm Bored, I Nearly Did Very Wrong
Qwerty keyboards are damn stupid. But then, so was I. At work, I was busily typing away, my banking missive being along the lines of:

'We regret to say we cannot relate the reference you have supplied with our own records. We cannot investigate this matter further, so please be advised that your letter is now closed and filed.'

Unfortunately, the I and L on a standard Qwerty are rather close to the U and K.

If not for the authentication system, I would have sent out my letter advising the customer that their letter had been closed and fuked.

Sort of a pity I didn't, really...

Silly me!
I only went and tried to include a php file, within an extended class while I had strict E_ALL reporting enabled. As you can imagine I was unprepared for the Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_INCLUDE, expecting T_FUNCTION that I received!

Just now
Tucked a cigarette behind my ear, and nonchalantly moseyed out for a smoke.

Stopped for a pee on the way and it fell out of its perch and into the bowl.

No laughing matter - they work out as about 30p a pop nowadays...

A good 20 years ago, when I was at sixth form college, I spent a lot of time in the music room. Either playing the piano or bending the future Mrs SLVA over it and taking her from behind on a very regular basis. However, it turned out I was doing it wrong. What I should've been doing was going to lessons and getting A levels to go off to Uni to study chemical engineering or some such science.

How we laughed when I left college with no qualifications, no prospects and a kid on the way.

Solar Panel
I was just trying to work out why the hell a solar panel in the garden would have an accelerometer inside.

The lights that are powered by it would only switch on when the panel was upside down and facing the floor.
After a bit of head scratching and reading the part of the manual that said the lights automatically come on in low light I realised how dumb I'd been.

A friend. Really.
A friend of mine really wants to smoke cannabis. In a party situation, she will always happily accept the joint.

As a non-smoker she hasn't quite got the hang of how one actually transfers from holding a joint to being stoned.

She blows into it. Every time. And then gets the giggles.
