The title says it all. So ever had that awkward moment where you're trying to be funny and the person you're with just tells you, "you're not funny" or "stop"? I've had it MANY times. Mainly when I have nothing to say and am just trying to kill time by maybe blurting out something funny. Like with this friend of mine, while we were playing video games, I was bored, so I just started talking gibberish in a really weird voice, trying to be funny. And then all I get from her is a, "can you please like stop?". And then I feel like a piece of crap for a couple of seconds (because I was trying to be funny but just came up as idiotic and annoying) and just say "ok" and then there's a REALLY awkward silence. So can anyone else relate?

Yes, don't worry, it's fine.
Many have been there.
You try to break the ice with what you think is a classic one liner to make people laugh, but all you hear is the crickets or passing tumbleweed. Story of half my life as the awkward one at parties... It's momentarily awkward though, people get over it.1
