Try a Humorous Reply when Someone Asks "How Are You?" ...

People tend to ask the same questions whenever you see them, which is why you should have a few different replies to "How are you?" You don't want to give the same, bland answer all the time. Your friends will expect you to say "fine" or "good," so shake things up by providing an unexpected answer. Here are some of the most humorous replies to "How are you?"

1. I'm Better on the inside than I Look on the outside

(Your reaction) Thank you!

This one works well when you're still in your pajamas or are having a bad hair day. You don't want others to assume that you feel as horrible as you look, so this is the way to set them straight. It's one of the best replies to "How are you?"

2. Can't Complain... I've Tried, but No One Listens

(Your reaction) Thank you!

"Can't complain" is a normal response to the question, but by throwing in the following sentence, you should get a laugh. I mean, no matter how amazing our lives are, there's always something to complain about. It's impossible for things to be perfect.

3. Hopefully Not as Good as I'll Ever Be

(Your reaction) Thank you!

This one is a bit depressing, which is why you should watch when you use it. It's best to say when you're in a horrible situation, like in a class you can't stand.

4. If I Was Any Better, Vitamins Would Be Taking Me

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Here's one to use when you're having a spectacular day. Things can't get much better and you want the world to know. Of course, you don't want to brag, which is why this funny line is useful.

5. Okay. I'd Be Better if You Asked Me out

(Your reaction) Thank you!

If your crush asks you how you are, you might as well be honest. Let them know that you're itching to go on a date. Who knows, they might just do it.

6. If I Was Any Finer, I'd Be China

(Your reaction) Thank you!

This one is bound to get a laugh. No one will expect to hear it, so you'll be catching your friends off guard. They might even steal it to use in the future.

7. Living the Dream

(Your reaction) Thank you!

If you've been stuck inside doing chores and homework all day, and your parents ask you how you are, what response do they expect? You don't want to be rude, but it's okay to give them a little sarcasm by using this phrase.

8. Better than I Was a Minute Ago, Because You're Here

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Here's another way to respond to your crush. It lets him know that you love spending time together. Hopefully he'll compliment you right back.

9. Okay, Because My Name Wasn't in Today's Obituaries

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Everyday that you're on the right side of the grass is a good day. Even if life is rough, be happy that you're still alive. It's quite the accomplishment.

10. Things Could Be Worse; I Could Be You

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Make sure the person you say this to is able to take a joke. Save it for your best friend, but avoid using it on your teacher. You want to make them laugh, not yell.

11. Stop Being so Nosy

(Your reaction) Thank you!

If you don't want to explain how you're feeling, then don't. There's no reason why you should have to express emotions to whoever asked. Tell them to stop being nosy and avoid answering.

12. I'm Still Sucking Air

(Your reaction) Thank you!

This one kills me! Haha basically a sassy way to say, "I'm still alive." but it's just so blunt and funny. I think it's a great response when you're possibly feeling cranky.

13. Physically? Mentally? Spiritually? Socioeconomically? Financially? I'm Not Sure How to Answer That!?

(Your reaction) Thank you!

This one is good. Everyone always thinks being asked how you are means your health or a general standing-but what about if it isn't? This one gets to the point of what they want to know, it's humorous, and it makes ya think.

14. If I Had a Tail, I Would Wag It

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Everyone knows a happy dog wags his tail, so if you're feeling happy and joyful, this would be a good response to give to someone asking how you're doing because it's clever and unique.

15. I'm Taking over the World

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Feeling confident? This is a good response to throw out there. Definitely will catch your casual convo counterpart off guard and will probably bring a chuckle.

16. Not Bad. Could Be Better. Could Be Payday

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Everything is always better on payday right!? Haha use this humorous response to make someone laugh-you never know, you just might brighten their day.

17. Wondering How You Are

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Turning the question around on them without actually having to answer? Brilliant! It's definitely a better reply than the standard, "I'm fine."

You'll be asked how you are almost every single day, which is why you should add some humor to your answers. How do you usually respond to the question?
