It can be enjoyable, but right now he has a bit of 'lifelong smoker who finally quit and now complains incessantly of every molecule of cigarette smoke that enters his sphere.'

Fact is 'we laugh because it hurts.' Everything outside of puns relies to some extent on someone suffering a bit of embarrassment or ridicule, from the most brutal roasting of someone to 'Mary Jane*' jokes where MJ doesn't recognize the sexuality of her situations.

"Mary Jane was playing on the swings one day, swinging higher and higher. Her mother came out and said, "Mary Jane, don't you swing too high, the boys will see your underwear." And Mary Jane laughed and laughed, because she knew she wasn't wearing any underwear."
