The Nature of Funny – Origins and Evolution of Funny Jokes and Humor

Humour or humor is a trend of human encounters to elicit laughs and give amusing amusement. Humor is a reaction against the seriousness of serious situations, sometimes bringing light to lighter things. It’s often associated with feelings of self-depreciation, and self-deprecating humor, sarcasm and wit, and even admiration and appreciation. The word derives from the classical medicine of the ancients, who taught that the balance of certain fluids in the body, called humors, controlled emotion and human wellbeing. For some people, a good sense of humour can be as soothing as a great cup of tea.


There are times when we are caught up in the heat of our emotions and commit a violation of social etiquette, or even law. The intention behind such violation of etiquette may be defamatory, offensive, humiliating, or even hurtful to another individual’s feelings. In situations such as these, it is a wise decision to use humour to counteract what might be perceived as a breach of social etiquette. For example, if a man commits a public outrage against another person or society, or if a woman commits a slight violation of another person’s etiquette, either intent upon the result of this violation or not, is equally justified under the law, provided that in the situation no more serious offence occurs, there is no physical injury, and if any harm is caused to another person or damage is done to property, then the act can be considered a violation of etiquette, if it can be proved that there was a malicious intent.

In many ways, these laws of comedy serve as a commentary on human nature itself. Most of us are inherently funny, but the concepts of humour and social etiquette are not. In order to understand why this is so, we need to look at other types of laws, such as those governing the administration of war. In war, laws and principles may vary depending on where the war is taking place, who the enemy is, and what goals are being pursued. If we consider the different legal regulations governing different parties in the conflict, including the government, army, and civilians, then we will see how laws and principles of comedy begin to coincide with the rules governing war. There are commonalities, of course, but similarities as well.

Funny, or Satirical, as it is commonly understood, has two basic theories that all other theories are built around. These are definitions of comedy and the relationship between language and meaning. The first of these is that language and meanings are always associated with other concepts. Therefore, if one definition of comedy entails that a joke is a telling of something completely true or non-existent, then that is what makes things funny.

The second theory that all other theories are built around is that there is some inherent meaning or symbolic appeal to certain forms of humor. For instance, if you observe a war going on, you will find that certain forms of humor are used to tell you what is happening. In a way, they are trying to say, “This is funny because it is happening right now.” This incongruity theory is very important to understand when you are learning how to make things funny.

In conclusion, all forms of humor are related to our understanding of reality and the relationships we have with other human beings. The relationships we have with our friends, family members, co-workers and even the funny things we do can make the world a better place. The key is to be able to separate your personal sense of humor from what you observe around you. By doing so, you will find that everything becomes more peaceful and enjoyable.
