Happened a lot in the first few years. On a similar note I had to hand joke help files for every joke I cracked My gutter humor was wasted here. Now I don't crack any jokes and just sit in the corner with my bottle of Tabasco sauce.
Have you noticed how you'll receive an English joke from someone - it'll be maybe two or three lines with a punchy catch line, you'll laugh and that will be that. A few days or weeks later you'll receive another joke from a German or Swiss colleague with a powerpoint attachment. You'll open it up and it will be the same joke only this time it's been enhanced with lot's of goofy graphics, really annoying letter-by-letter fly-in animation, garish colour schemes and somehow the humour has been removed? Happens a lot I believe
