Get the British humor mug.
Used to describe something that is not funny, but to indicate that you should pretend that it is so "intellectual" pricks will not deride you as an uncultured, ignorant dolt.
Man is struck in the face with a bat.
Arrogant prick: "OH, HAHAHA, everybody look how funny I think that is!"

Friend: "How can you laugh at that? That's horrible. You don't even sound like you really like it anyway."

Arrogant prick: "It's British humor you ignorant, uncultured dolt! It requires a higher intelligence than you possess to appreciate"

Sheeple: "Oh, it's British humor! I think it's funny too! HAHAHAHA! I'm so glad I'm not an ignorant, uncultured dolt like that guy. HAHAHAHA"
*Looks around to make sure everyone sees him laughing.*
