A stable and emotionally balanced person can handle a joke anytime. At the very least they will appreciate the comics attempt to make them smile. Emotionally unbalanced people usually can't go too deep into what they are hearing. They hear what they want to and interpret how they see fit. Basically emotions blind unbalanced people.
