Periscope? I don't even know what that is. Shame on me.

But thanks for the info and links. Nice and complementary thoughts about Amal today!

She has a good sense of humor , it's nice to know they go to Augusta when they can .

They got Georges home town wrong he's not from Lexington.

Thank you, Jenn. Great article. 

You can imagine the banter around their house(s), can't you?

Thanks Jenn for posting. Yes annemarie she is funny. George has mentioned her sense of humor many times. Really enjoyed the read. Amal is just 38 and already has had some amazing experiences in her life. There are many women I admire for different reasons. Sonia Sottomayor is one of them. Amal is one of them.

Sorry for criticizing but for me Amal is as funny as a bottle of milk and a tennis rocket next to each other...

Not everyone finds the same things funny I think it has to do with how something is presented and the look they give when they give the joke or antedote.

George has a great sense of humor. Think he would be a good judge.

There have so few articles written about Amal where she is quoted talking about her career and new life with George. I really enjoyed reading what she had to say about herself and her work.

From what I read I didn't find her especially funny either, but a lot of humor depends on tone of voice and facial expression.Maybe you had to be there to really get it.

I would describe Amal's sense of humour as ironic wit. It's very British and quite sarcastic - remember the comment about who she was wearing in the European court?

Loved the one about the big reception her parents threw at Danesfield House for all the 'cousins' that neither of them had ever met! Very succinct.

Good description PAN. Some of her comments from the interview came across to me as pretty witty with a bit of sarcasm mixed in.

Sorry, guys, but I think she's the worst dressed woman in that photo of four. The top is ok - it's a peach colored blouse - big deal. But the pants!!- OMG! They hang on her as if they were made for her mother and they look like they were made out of that rubbery 1960's polyester! Awful.

Those are not pants any real working woman could wear, unless she has an unlimited budget for dry cleaning. If this outfit is the latest trend then I think Amal is becoming more fashion victim than fashion icon.

I think this is what Amal likes, if she is comfortable good for her. There are working women who will pay dry cleaning I know a few they don't have a problem with it. If it makes their garment last longer.Not everything has to go to the cleaners I use dryel for in between trips to the cleaners.

To be fair the  press have called Amal a fashion Icon, that is not what she calls herself. I think as I have said she has her own style and wears what she likes. Which all women should do .
She happens to love clothes there are many women who do it's nothing new.

Thumbs up! Thumbs up! 

What's on her nightstand, Clooney laughed and responded,

"The Azerbaijani tax code."

Sharp wit. Fast on her feet. I expect it's like watching a good tennis match - only funny. Truly - someone you would want to have at your dinner table :-) I can easily imagine being in stitches.

Definitely.

And the Azerbaijani quote is probably very near the truth. Her next bone fide case is for the young journalist isn't it?

Wonder if she'll go there next week when they go to Armenia. It's over the border from there

About Amal's sense of humor:
I would describe it as witty and ironic as well - from what I read and how she answered the first question in Delhi.

For me her sense of humor is quite similar to George's, and I often have the impression that many people don't get his sense of humor as well - ...

I would agree with that carolhathaway. I think you have to be in right mood for some of his humour. Sometimes it comes off as immature imo.

She said that at their wedding there were people on both sides who didn't think either of them would ever marry. She said she highly recommended marriage.

This she said in I believe India.

In Texas she said that there was a lot of news in her parents home and her marital one.

Doug Ross I think it's under "Amal Clooney to be at Conclave 2016 New Dehli March 17-18, 2016" topic in the Amal thread. Third post down. I hope I'm referencing what you're looking for.

Really nice pictures. Thanks PAN. Great to read that this group of strong women used their passion to raise $1 million for a cause that's so many times gets underreported here in the states.
