This paper presents our submission to SemEval-2017 Task 6: #HashtagWars: Learning a Sense of Humor. There are two subtasks: A. Pairwise Comparison, and B. Semi-Ranking. Our assumption is that the distribution of humorous and non-humorous texts in real life language is naturally imbalanced. Using Naïve Bayes Multinomial with standard text-representation features, we approached Subtask B as a sequence of imbalanced classification problems, and optimized our system per the macro-average recall.doi:10.18653/v1/s17-2063 dblp:conf/semeval/HanT17 fatcat:rk35dkp2fzf5jgbsml63onql5i
