Suppose that I joke with my friend but he gets angry easily and then I say to him:
1. You don't have capacity for a joking.
2. You don't have capacity for joking.
3. You don't have capacity to joking.
4. You don't have capacity for a joking.
What's your opinion about my above examples? Do they work? How would you say if you were me?
not a teacher
Another possibility is, "You can't take a joke".
None of your examples is correct.
"You don't have a capacity for joking" is the closest correct example to what you've written.
Note though that there is a difference between being able to make a joke and being able to take one. Your sentences don't make a distinction.
Thank you my friends.
In Persian language we sometimes say: "You don't have properties for joking."
Do you have any sentence in English similar to this one?
