The Dilbert Blog : Humor Formula
Topic: Comics
The Dilbert Blog "In today’s blog entry I will teach you how to write humor, thus removing the mystery and in the process turning you into a joyless zombie, albeit a witty one. I wrote on this topic more extensively in my book, The Joy of Work. So I'll just give you the highlights here. The core of humor is what I call the 2-of-6 rule. In order for something to be funny, you need at least two of the following elements:
Cute (as in kids and animals)
Recognizable (You've been there)
I invented this rule, but you can check for yourself that whenever something is funny it follows the rule. And when something isn't, it doesn't." Read more in The Dilbert Blog, by Scott Adams.
