This is apparently the world's longest joke (maybe because of the format?) http://longestjokeintheworld.com/ but how true are the conclusions at the end?
If you don't agree with me you are obviously not from this planet.

Bits and pieces of all three types seem to apply to me, so I suspect we have a bit of Forer effect going on here...

I only read the whole thing because I had nothing else to do at 3:00 am, could not sleep. Normally I would have skipped to the punch line.

That is indeed one of the problems: whether or not people read to the end depends not only on their personality, but also on circumstances.
