This phrase is often misused. It means: being able to perceive comical things.

However, it is often used to accuse others of a lack thereof when the person fails to laugh at someone else's expense. Or when the person fails to laugh WITH those who are laughing AT him.

Many if not most people say "sense of humor" when they mean "C'mon, let us have a little fun at your expense."
For example, Albert falls while trying a ballet pirouette. Just because his friends find it funny doesn't mean they should laugh. Why? Because real friends spare the feelings of their friends. However, it is OK to laugh if Albert gives them permission. How does he do this? By laughing at himself first.

"Albert, that fatty, fell while trying his ballet moves. We all started laughing. He didn't laugh because he has no sense of humor."

The condition in which a person is afflicted by an inability to be amused by certain cognitive experiences. Somebody who does not find jokes or situations that tend to make others smile or break into laughter is considered to have an undescended sense of humor.An inability to perceive what is comical. Magic mushrooms or marijuana are widely considered to be treatments for this condition.
Rodney is such a tool. He didn't even break into a chuckle when we saw that comedian with all the big dick jokes. Why we hang out with somebody who has an undescended sense of humor is beside me.

The inability to laugh, relax, take it easy, or find jokes funny. People with sense of humor cancer are typically perfectionists who never laugh. They can also appear as radical conservative assholes like Ann Coulter, or liberal hippie douchebags that have to defend everything. And if they smile at anything, it's the most vapid form of obvious humor. They take everything absolutely seriously and are usually an absolute buzzkill.

Sense of humor cancer can metastasize so badly that the victim may hate and be jealous of others who actually have a sense of humor.
"My sister lives in California, protests in demonstrations, hates all men, and never laughs at anything. I think she has sense of humor cancer."

Having a poor sense of humor is worse than really being broke. Not taking anything seriously isn't the same thing as having a sense of humor. Being a joke isn't the same thing as being funny.
