Pop Thursday – The Science of Humour
Happy Pop Thursday.
Today I’m thinking a lot about Fido Dido.
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.
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!
