Pop Thursday – The Science of Humour

July 7, 2011

Happy Pop Thursday.

Today I’m thinking a lot about Fido Dido.

You doing good work, Fido

But I’m still not going to drink 7 Up because it sucks, and tastes like a ballerina’s left sock.  No, it’s my old stand-by Dr. Pepper for me today.

Dr. Pepper is so tasty, it even makes this old crone look good.  

Looking good, Old Crone!

I want to point your attention to an article that was part of Wired Magazine’s Humour issue recently.  Wired is a solid, well-written magazine, and this guy has a neat theory about how laughing reactions can be boiled down to what he calls a “benign violation.”  It also has an anecdote involving him pissing off Louis CK which is pretty funny as well.  Check it out while you’re slurpin’ away at that pop, pal!
