Random is when something happens out of the blue, with no real reason or purpose. It, in my opinion, is WAY funnier than stuff that makes sense. Lets compare Frasier to Monty Python's Flying Circus, shall we? Frasier obviously represents organized comedy, and M.P.F.C. obviously stands for Random Comedy. If you didnt know that already, you are retarded. I'll show you what I mean:
|||FRASIER|||
Roz: "Ever heard of Lupe Velez?"
Frasier: "Who?"
Roz: "Lupe Velez, the movie star in the '30s. Well, her career hit the skids, so she decided she'd make one final stab at immortality. She figured if she couldn't be remembered for her movies, she'd be remembered for the way she died. And all Lupe wanted was to be remembered. So, she plans this lavish suicide - flowers, candles, silk sheets, white satin gown, full hair and makeup, the works. She takes the overdose of pills, lays on the bed, and imagines how beautiful she's going to look on the front page of tomorrow's newspaper. Unfortunately, the pills don't sit well with the enchilada combo plate she sadly chose as her last meal. She stumbles to the bathroom, trips and goes head-first into the toilet, and that's how they found her."
Frasier: "Is there a reason you're telling me this story?"
Roz: "Yes. Even though things may not happen like we planned, they can work out anyway."
Frasier: "Remind me again how it worked for Lupe, last seen with her head in the toilet."
Roz: "All she wanted was to be remembered. Will you ever forget that story?"

|||Monty Python's Flying Circus|||
Mrs. Podgorny: Oh, a blancmange gave you an order for 48,000,000 kilts?
Angus: Aye!
Mrs. Podgorny: And you believed it?
Angus: Aye, I did.
Mrs. Podgorny: Och, you're a stupid man, Angus Podgorny.
Angus: (getting a little angry) Oh look woman, how many kilts did we sell last year? Nine and a half, that's all. So when I get an order for 48,000,000, I believe it - you bet I believe it.
Mrs. Podgorny: Even if it's from a blancmange?
Angus: Och, woman, if a blancmange is prepared to come 2,200,000 light years to purchase a kilt, they must be fairly keen on kilts. So cease yer prattling woman and get sewing. This could be the biggest breakthrough in kilts since the Provost of Edinburgh sat on a spike. Mary, we'll be rich! We'll be rich!
Mrs. Podgorny (Mary): Oh, but Angus... he hasna given you an earnest of his good faith!
Angus: Ah mebbe not but he has gi' me this... (brings out piece of folded paper from sporran)
Mary: What is it now?
Angus: An entry form for the British Open Tennis Championships at Wimbledon Toon... signed and seconded.
Mary: Och, but Angus, ye ken full well that Scots folk dinna know how to play the tennis to save their lives.
Angus: Aye, but I must go though dear, I dinna want to seem ungrateful.
Mary: Ach! Angus, I wilna let you make a fool o'yoursel'.
Angus: But I must.
Mary: Och, no you'll not...
Angus: Oh, Mary... (suddenly we hear a strange creaking and a slurping noise; a look of horror comes into his eyes) Oh, oh, Mary! Look out! Look out!
(Big close-up of Mary's eyes starting out from head.)
Mary: Urrgh. It's the blancmange. (Blur focus. Cut to a desk for police spokesman. A peaked-capped policeman sits there, reading 'The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire' by Googie Withers. He lowers book and talks chattily to camera.)
Policeman: Oh, now this is where Mr Podgorny could have saved his wife's life. If he'd gone to the police and told them that he'd been approached by unearthly beings from the Galaxy of Andromeda, we'd have sent a man round to investigate. As it was he did a deal with a blancmange, and the blancmange ate his wife. So if you're going out, or going on holiday, or anything strange happens involving other galaxies, just nip round to your local police station, and tell the sergeant on duty - or his wife - of your suspicions. And the same goes for dogs. So I'm sorry to have interrupted your exciting science fiction story ... but, then, crime's our business you know. So carry on viewing, and my thanks to the BBC for allowing me to have this little chat with you. Goodnight. God bless, look after yourselves.

Which do YOU think is funnier. More importantly, How The HELL did you manage to read all that without getting bored?

A term used to explain something out of the ordinary or something that doesn't make sense. A term I hear way too often and it pisses me off more then anything. Please, If you are going to be the R word or if something is so R or whatever, just try not to say the fucking word out loud. Just keep it to yourself and I'm sure everyone around you will notice and give you points. I mean, out of all the different types of humor, I do think it is the funniest when it doesn't make sense. Although, it is not funny to say the R word, and saying the R word is not so R itself. So please. Refrain! Red light green light untill I die.
-Frank: It says I must use this word in a sentence!
Hogarth: Which word mom?
Frank: Random
Hogarth: Oh mom, my ears are on fire. Please make my bed then show me to the door.

-It would be more simple if you just put the sock next to the scotch tape and let the gerbil take care of the rest.

Leonard: Ghost treaty!?
Jeff: SLAP TIME!
Leonard: FUN PUZZLES?
Jeff: STARVATION?!
Leonard: HAHAHA!
Jeff: HAHAHAHAH!

-What's more important to you, pancakes or making progress. I mean c'mon.

-Mister Paddles has a coat HAH! and it isn't even cold. Paddles is in such trouble! What will he do? That Paddles, he's always getting himself into some unsettling situations. Yeah Paddles, I hear you. I will remove the hook. Soon Paddles. Love you Paddles. LOVE YOU!

Girl: Terry! Grandpa is mean mugging himself again. He said he would stop if you would actually use the chess set for something other than musical chairs. You know how grandpa gets.
Terry: TAKE THE DAMN THING BACK THEN I WAS HAVING FUN BEING AN IGLOO AND NOW EVERYTHING IS RUINED!

The new "it" word among faux-intellectuals who believe that irrelevance equals originality. In short, glorified social incompetence.
Person A: "I can't believe I got a ticket over this crap, can you believe it?"

Person B: "For real! It's hella funny though, this one police car I saw had weird-ass stickers on it."

Person A: "...what?"

Person C: "Oh Person B, you're so random -- I love it!"

an incredily overused word humongous douche bags use. Usually used by people who think they are smart.
Lexi: omg! That was so random what you did right now!
phil: i will shoot you.

A word meaning irrelevant or out of nowhere.

Individuals often use this word to mask nonsensical "humor".

Random is not the same as "unexpected"
Random humor is only random because it is in a context, thus making it stand out.

Actually the dictionary defines random as a thing done or said without thinking of the consequences and with no definite plan or pattern. This means that many of the things dissmissed as not being random within the 9 pages of its definition on this website, are in fact random. In fact those who believe in the theory of the big bang have to acknowledge a certain degree of randomness exists in everything that humans do, simply because there is no "definite plan" and we make our own decisions. Therefore, in the context of the universe, a man taking the train on his way to work in the morning can be seen as random. In the same way as university students deciding to go to a 24 hour tesco at 6am is random as it is a decision made without thinking of any consequences.
I am writing this definition without a definite plan and i am not thinking of any consequences as it is a decision i have made on the spot. Therefore, it is to a certain extent, random.
by nik86 December 23, 2005
ok.theres 200 pages of definitions that agree with me.
WHY THE FUCK THEN DO PEOPLE STILL SAY IT?
Things considered "random" by the mindless twats of teenagers im:

-putting repeated letters at the end of words.

"Hii" "Randomm!" "Oh my godd" "Rawrr"

-Saying "rawr"

"Rawrr!"
" OMG your so randomm like :D "

- Being just like every other pradictable fucker.

"LOL OMG"
"Rawrr!"

- Wearing Neon. >:l

A commonly misused Facebook album title, actually meaning a series of carefully composed photos which make the subject look more attractive than they really are.
"Here are some randoms of me in dim lighting and a push up bra."
