Welcome to our Samoan Humor Page

Talofa lava and welcome to our Samoan Humor page.

Included on this page is stuff that was sent to us from people like you. We have collected stuff that we thought was especially funny and true about us, Samoans, so that we can all laugh together about what makes us special and different from other people in this world.

Samoan humor, at its best, is like no other kind of humor. It is unique, truthful, and can really make your stomach hurt from laughing so hard. At its worst, of which examples abound on the other Samoan sites, it is nothing more than petty attempts at trying to get attention. But hey, you won't find that here because this is a family site and only good-natured "stuff" will be posted.

Enjoy the humor and visit us again. We would like to thank Sina Solomona for sending the first of these interesting bits of Samoan humor.
