Distorted Humor (foaled 1993 in Kentucky) is an American Thoroughbred racehorse and a successful sire.

Distorted Humor's sire is Forty Niner, 1987's Eclipse Award winning Outstanding Two-Year-Old Male Horse by the champion sire, Mr. Prospector. Distorted Humor's dam was Danzig's Beauty by Danzig. Distorted Humor was her second foal. (Danzig's Beauty died June 17, 2006, at the age of 19 due to colic. She'd given birth in April, 2006, to her last foal, a filly by Empire Maker. Of her eight starters, six were winners.)

Distorted Humor himself had a career running middle-distance stakes races. He impressively broke his maiden at Florida's Gulfstream Park. Trained by Phil Gleaves as a sprinter/miler, Elliott Walden took over the training in the spring of 1996 after Prestonwood Farm purchased a half-interest in Distorted Humor. Distorted Humor's eventual race record was 8 wins, 5 places and 3 shows in 23 starts, earning a total of $769,964. As a three-year-old, he won the Screen King Stakes, was second in the Grade III Fayette Stakes and the Grade II Jerome Handicap, and 3rd in the Grade III King's Bishop Stakes. At four, he took the Grade III Salvator Mile Handicap, was second in the Grade III Kentucky Cup Classic Stakes and the Grade III Philip H. Iselin Handicap. At five, he took the Grade II Commonwealth Breeders' Cup Stakes (setting the record for the distance that still holds), the Grade II Churchill Downs Stakes, and the Grade III Ack Ack Handicap before he was retired.
