How’s this – too harsh?

The person who claps after someone says something funny is either saying,

“Look at us! We’re all bonding! With Humor! We should feel good at this gathering!”

or worse,

“Look at me! I’m a jocular fellow! I’m enjoying this humorous situation!”

Also, if you’re close enough to the clapper, the sound is as jarring as getting poked in the head with a pool stick.
