  • Slide 6 - Through humor, you can soften some of the worst blows that life delivers. And once you find laughter, no matter how painful your situation might be, you can survive it. - Bill Cosby Humor is tragedy plus time. - Mark Twain Humor is a rubber sword - it allows you to make a point without drawing blood. - Mary Hirsch
  • Slide 7 - WHAT IS HUMOUR …. It be defined as that which makes us laugh, smile, or amuses us. Source:Making Humor Work, Terry L. Paulson, Ph.D.,1989
  • Slide 8 - Elements of Humour A sense of humour can be defined as the ability to perceive one or more of the universal characteristics. Therefore, one’s sense of humor involves the capacity to appreciate: incongruity wordplay absurdity what if..(future) common experiences cultural and historical contexts
  • Slide 9 - Incongruity… LFFs = contrast / juxtaposition / oxymoron Incongruity means: putting two opposite ideas/things together that don’t belong together. “Don’t sweat the petty things, and don’t pet the sweaty things.” - George Carlin “Never take a sleeping pill and a laxative in the same night.” - Dave Barry
  • Slide 10 - Wordplay (double meanings)… LFFs = pun / innuendo / homonyms Toilet out of order. Please use floor below. In case of fire do not use elevator, use water.
 The farmer allows walkers to cross the field for free, but the bull charges. The skinny postman was asked why he was so thin. “Because I only have one mail a day”
  • Slide 11 - Wordplay (Double entendres)…LFFs = sexual innuendo A double entendre usually implies a subtext (metaphoric meaning) beyond the real literal meaning…phrases that can be understood in two different ways: “Gymnasts do it upside down.” “Actors do it onstage.” “If I told you you had a beautiful body, would you hold it against me?” “You know what they say about men with big feet??? – big socks!!
  • Slide 12 - Common Experiences… LFFs = rhetorical questions / high modality / contrast Truth in comedy is what makes people laugh and relate to the humorist’s jokes or comments. “Oh, you hate your job? Why didn't you say so? There's a support group for that. It's called EVERYBODY, and they meet at the bar.” - Drew Carey “Have you ever noticed that anybody driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac?” - George Carlin
  • Slide 13 - Wordplay (Rule of three)…LFFs = cumulative imagery / repetition / contrast / juxtaposition This is often used by comedians, and requires that they list two normal items in a sequence, followed by a third that is nonsensical or absurd or wrong: “Can I get you anything? Cup of coffee? Doughnut? Plastic surgery?” In The Addams Family, Morticia is clearing out a closet and finds three bags. In bag #1, "Uncle Knick-knack's Winter Wardrobe". In bag #2, "Uncle Knick-knack's Summer Wardrobe". In bag #3, "Uncle Knick-knack.” “For Halloween this year, my kid got 3 apples, 2 candy bars, and the deed to one of McCain’s seven houses.”
  • Slide 14 - Absurdity, ridiculousness Something that makes no sense and is just over-the-top-strange. “Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you see one tumble down the stairs.” LFFs = sibilance / allusion / simile “English - Who needs that? I'm never going to England!” LFFs = repetition / pun / high modality / rhetorical question
  • Slide 15 - what if?… LFFs = rhetorical questions / repetition / cumulative imagery “The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends. I mean, life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time. What do you get at the end of it? A Death! What's that, a bonus? I think the life cycle is all backwards. You should die first, get it out of the way. Then you live in an old age home. You get kicked out when you're too young, you get a gold watch, you go to work. You work forty years until you're young enough to enjoy your retirement. You do drugs, alcohol, you party, you get ready for high school. You go to grade school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities, you become a little baby, you go back into the womb, you spend your last nine months floating…” George Carlin
  • Slide 16 - Cultural Context… LFFs = allusion / vernacular / similes / hyperbole Humor is funny because we can relate to it. What people in America find funny, people in Egypt might not find funny. Jokes about our culture work because we recognize the truth in them. What’s funny in your culture?
  • Slide 17 - Historical Context Humor is a real snapshot of a certain time. Things that were funny in the ‘80s aren’t as funny today. Mark Twain’s humor doesn’t make us laugh as much as it made the people of his own time laugh.
  • Slide 18 - TYPES OF HUMOR Satire - sarcasm (Daily Show) Farce - broad, over-the-top humor (Weekend at Bernie’s, Dr. Doolittle, Austin Powers) Slapstick - physical humor (Three Stooges) Parody- copying the form of something established, but tweaking it (Saturday Night Live, Colbert Report) Situational - personal life situations that are funny. (Dane Cook, Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock)
  • Slide 19 - SIX REASONS THAT FUN CAN IMPROVE YOUR LIFE… Breaks up boredom and fatigue Fulfills human social needs It increases creativity and willingness to help Fun fulfills the need for mastery and control Fun improves communication Fun breaks up conflict and tension Source: www.workplaceissues.com/arhumor.htm
