Make Humour

Make Humour is a matter of taste and opinions on what constitutes humour vary from person to person. Humour can involve incongruity, ridicule, or exaggeration. The concept is often associated with the comic, but it has its place in drama and literature as well.

  • You might find something funny that others don’t find funny.
  • People’s sense of humour can change over time, depending on their surroundings and experiences.

Absurdist, black and satirical humour are often closely linked.

Absurdist humour, black humour, and satirical humour are often closely linked. All three types of humour are based on the incongruity theory: you laugh when a situation is unexpectedly funny because it doesn’t fit into your expectations. Absurdist humour involves a situation that we all know should be possible but is not—such as an astronaut landing on the moon or two nuns getting pregnant at the same time (and having twins).

Black humour uses dark satire to create laughs by presenting something unacceptable as normal or desirable; for example: “I want to kill my son” becomes “You should kill your son.” Satire takes advantage of people’s political biases by exaggerating them in order to make us question them; for example: “The government plans for everyone being able to own their own home” becomes “The government plans for everyone being able to own their own home if they can afford one.”

Most religions have developed nuanced doctrines about humour, even though the general tendency has been for religious traditions to reject it with few exceptions.

The religious taboo against humour has gradually eroded in the West since the 17th century as religious authority has waned.

Religion is not a big part of many people’s lives, but it still holds some power over them. For example, some people believe that a god exists who can help them achieve their goals and make life better for themselves and others around them.

Religion is also important to other people: those who believe in God are encouraged by their faith to behave morally and do good deeds such as helping the poor or caring for animals (especially cats). They may go further than that by refusing to eat meat from animals raised on farms which have been treated poorly or killed unnecessarily – this helps reduce unnecessary suffering during slaughtering/processing as well as provide ethical alternatives for consumers wanting something different from what they usually get at marketplaces.”

is a good way to keep the brain active and the mind stimulated, and it has been shown to help people with Alzheimer’s disease retain their memories. For example, one study found that telling jokes helped participants remember things better than if they just watched a video or read an article about it; another study showed that making jokes with friends improved memory in healthy seniors who had mild cognitive impairment by 10%.

Joke-telling can also improve social interaction among older adults, who often find themselves isolated due to their age or other health conditions (such as arthritis). The ability of older adults’ brains to sense humour varies widely throughout life; some people learn how best to tell jokes while others don’t develop this skill until later on in life.

Incongruity theory states that the humour evoked by a given joke is based on the tension between two mental states (the incongruent mental state and the congruent mental state) that occur simultaneously in response to certain stimuli.

An example of incongruity theory would be a situation where you are looking at your phone and then receive an IM from your friend who has just sent you an email with a link attached. Your mind immediately thinks of all kinds of things:

what could they want? Is it something important? Should I open it now or wait until later? These thoughts are associated with your conscious thoughts and memories of previous conversations with this person; therefore, when you read this IM on your phone screen, it triggers both types of responses simultaneously because they were already familiar with each other’s personalities—and thus their reactions were natural ones as opposed to forced ones.

humour varies from person to person

Humour is subjective. It’s a matter of taste, and each person will have their own idea about what makes them laugh. Some people find slapstick funny, while others might prefer dry wit or sarcastic commentary.

varies from person to person because humor is largely contextual; it depends on the situation you’re in, who you are talking with and whether or not your audience likes you (or at least has some kind of interest in what you’re saying).
