The first part is pretty self explanatory. As for the second: "I wouldn't mind in the slightest about his pornography collection, but I'd laugh at him a lot..."

This isn't all that important, but... How would you laugh at him?
I mean... "Hee! You're watching pornography! Hee hee!"

I think he means 'why would you be amused as opposed to offended'.

Ooh, fun! A speculating contest about what the heck Darnn meant!

I think he wanted to know what sort of material she could find in Yahtzee's habits to tease him about. As in what specifically she'd say when she laughed at him.

Hmm. This is actually rather difficult to explain. It appears to be one of those situations that the English language doesn't allow explanation in. Or maybe I just can't think of the right words. Did anyone understand what I tried to say, or should I try again?
