Cracking the Codes of Comedy: On the Anatomy of Jokes, Part 2

Nice Blog…

Humor in America

Funny Cow

Last month I explored the anatomy of jokes by looking simple joke forms, “light-bulb jokes” in particular, in the ongoing context of applying the scientific method to understanding humor. See: Cracking the Codes of Comedy Part 1

Since I named that post “Part 1,” it would seem that I needed to follow up with a “Part 2.” I am a man of my word.

When I made the implied promise to provide a second installment built off of the popularity of the fine book The Humor Code, I expected to finish the book. I have not. That’s on me and in no way a criticism of the book. Things came up.

But I have continued to think about ways to analyze humor in the classroom using simple joke forms. The light bulb joke form still seems to me to be a rather useful joke. It is simple; it is…

Mice Make Great First Pets

Nice post..

The Animal Store Blog

Pip Originally uploaded by -kirra-
What kind of animal needs to be oiled?
A mouse, because it squeaks!
OK, that’s a bad joke, but it’s no joke that Animal Store mice make great first pets. Pet mice are a far cry from the field mice that can become household pests. Pet mice can be full of personality; they are gentle and easy to maintain, and can become quite tame if handled regularly. Their habitats don’t take up much room, making them ideal pets for families living in small spaces.
Another advantage of owning mice as pets is that they don’t require much equipment:
  • a wire cage or an aquarium with a tight-fitting screen cover
  • bedding
  • a small nesting box
  • a gravity-fed water bottle
  • a small food bowl
  • an exercise wheel
  • food
  • a few toys and treats

The Animal Store has everything you need to get started. Mention this blog…

Mathy Animals

Nice post……

Math Jokes 4 Mathy Folks

Many animals are proficient at math…

  • Rabbits, because they multiply.
  • Sea anemone, because they divide.
  • Snakes, because they can be adders.
  • Beavers, because they work with natural logs.
  • Flamingoes, because they balance.

What insect is good at math?

An account-ant.


And a joke funny enough to share, even if it’s only pseudo-mathy…

A dog in a front yard is tethered to a sign that reads, “Talking Dog for Sale.” The man walks up to the dog. “You talk?” he asks.

“Sure do,” the mutt replies.

“So, what’s your story?”

The dog looks up and says, “Well, I was adopted by a mathematician when I was just a puppy. Recognizing my gift, he offered my services to the NSA. I would attend meetings with spies and world leaders. None of them expected me to be listening, so they would discuss all kinds of secret plans in front of me. For years, I was…
