Very funny.

Say this when someone makes a mean or teasing joke about you. "Very funny" actually means that you don't think the joke is funny. 

This is an example of sarcasm.

When you really do think that a joke is funny, don't say "very funny". Instead, say something like:

That's funny!

That's hilarious!

That's pretty funny.
