Need help with comedy with no romance

HI guys, i really need suggestions for anime with comedy as the main theme and no romance in it.
I'm just bored with so many comedy animes always have romance theme along them. It would be fine if there is A LITTLE bit romance, as long as the romance isn't too significant. Also it should be very funny that you will lol at most of the episodes.

The animes i've watched with the above conditions so far :
- Azumanga Daioh
- Lucky Star
- Ichigo Mashimaro
- Cromartie High School
- Happy Lesson (i know there is a bit romance in it, but it isn't too obvious)
- Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei (the same as Happy Lesson)

Hope you can help me!!!!

Bleach has SOME comedy; lil here and there.
The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi-its debatable whether it has romance or not
Full Metal Alchemist-some but not fully based on comedy
Full Metal Panic(all seasons)-bit of romance but comedy/action for the rest
Samurai Champloo-Mix of comedy/action(more action than comedy)
Welcome to the NHK-slice of the otaku life as well as some comedy
Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei-comedy
Soul Eater-has plenty of comedy, low on the romance or no romance haven't really caught up to the episodes
Seto no Hanayome-though its suppose to be romance, you don't really see much of that, maybe a 80:20, 20 being romance
Minami-ke-similar to lucky stars
zero no tsukaima-its mix of romance/comedy but you can prob endure the romance
Genshikin-you might or might not notice some of the jokes they play

emmmmm though some of my recs have romance in them they are very light on it or isnt the main focus of the series, give em a try.

Jungle wa Itsumo Hale nochi Guu - One of the funniest anime I've ever seen
Yakitate Japan - It might have TINY hints of romance, but its very subtle (like 1 or 2 scenes with hints in all the 60 something episodes).

Sakigake!! Otokojuku - takes place in an all-male school so no romance there.
Same for Sakigake!! Cromartie Koukou

Thanks for the replies, guys.
I've watched some of them. Some of arkuatic's suggestions are leaning more into action or romance than comedy, but thanks for the suggestions though. Cromartie and Zetsubo sensei are also the kind of anime that i looked for (forgot to add those). I've heard nice things about Guu, but i thought it has some romance because it's about a boy and a girl.
Also i heard FLCL is a confusing anime. Is it really of a comedy genre?

"Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu" is as close a comedy as I can think of.

Their is not really any romance in it at all, unless the viewers themselves think that some of the events that occur are. But their is no "I'm so in love with her" and things like that at all! Their is just the odd scene where they discuss which people they think are hot. The whole anime is just based around one guy that happens to be a teenager so he just sometimes thinks to himself about the characters in the anime and how good their body's are.

Another one could be "Sketchbook Full Color'S" (not dubbed yet). It centers around an art club in school and mainly revolves around one shy girl named "Kajiwara Sora". It's a cute anime with a lot of comedy. It also has a really relaxing atmosphere and is quite peaceful. In a way it felt like watching "Azumanga Daioh" and "Ichigo Mashimaro" put together. Their teacher also resembles Yukari-sensei and Kuroi-sensei a lot.

If not that then I would have said "Azumanga Daioh", "Ichigo Mashimaro", and "Lucky Star", as they are perfect, although obviously you have seen them. Expecting.

Oh! Edo rocket is pretty funny. So far the romance part is very mild, I heared it stays such.
