Dry humour can be sarcastic, generally a little more subtle than normal humour.

Black comedy is often dry humour, you have to think about it a touch more as it's a lot less obvious.

I would consider most sarcasm as dry humour.

Slapstick is definately not dry humour.

You aren't thinking or really existing unless you're willing to risk even your own sanity in the judgment of your existence.

Posted:Dry = Deadpan, cynical, sarcastic, intelligent and jaded.

Wet = Cream pie, All the american pie movies*, fart jokes and rolling round on the floor wetting yourself..

Dry humour can be done in the safety of your own home.

Wet humour is messy and, if done improperly, can take hours to clean up the mysterious stains.

EDIT: *I'd like to point out that these movies aren't actually funny, but their obsession with anything sex/bodily fluid related makes them prime suspects...

Hmm... Wet humour = body fluid related.. Possible hypothesis...

Posted:well i serched some site and dry humour is =

Dry humour is humour told in a "dry" way, without emotion, e.g. seriously. So you tell a joke like it's not a joke, in a matter-of-fact kind of way. defines it as this:

humorously sarcastic or mocking; "dry humor"; "an ironic remark often conveys an intended meaning obliquely"; "an ironic novel"; "an ironical smile"; "with a wry Scottish wit"

I guess that wet humour is the bodyly fluid/ american pie style humor biggrin its funny in a sick and twisted way (like most things nowadays)
