Warped or outdated sense of humor?

The past two days I've told my coworkers (and Ro) jokes that have totally bombed. I mean crash and burn, lie there on the floor dead in flames jokes. I'm wondering if my sense of humor is too warped, outdated or left-field for the "normal" person.

1) This is from Fibber McGee and Molly. (background here) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fibber_McGee_and_Molly

I don't know how it came up but we got to talking about Halloween and tricks or treats and the like and it turned my mind to an episode of Fibber McGee and Molly. In an episode where Fibber is looking for his hip boots to go fishing they get to talking about Halloween as well and Fibber relates what happened to him one night. He and two of his friends were out trick or treating and a tornado hit. "Talk about being three sheets in the wind."
Yeah, no one got it.

2) I realized that we have a dead spot in the casino where there is no camera coverage at all. So I needed the layout of the cameras we do have to figure out if I needed a new one or if I could just move an existing one. I couldn't find the darn thing, but in looking through the state codes I found that in the definitions section they have defined player, dealer, cashier, pit boss, security officer, and surveillance officer (among others). I said that its a good thing we're all defined so clearly so if we ever stop thinking we won't disappear.
No one got it.
I went a step further and told the old joke about Rene Descart walks into a bar. The barman asks if he wants a drink. He says I think not and vanishes.
No one got that one either.

Now I'm depressed. Oh well, at least my dad understood and got them both.
