Humor, especially light self-deprecating humor, can mask a lot of anxiety or shyness or low self-confidence issues in social interactions. I learned that as a child because I had so many schools I was always the new kid; humor and being able to entertain people is how I was able to go into to a new school and make friends quickly.

Spaghetti and soup... they usually end up on my shirt. It's better at home where I can just tie a dish towel around my neck...
