The Science of Laughter

Far from mere reactions to jokes, hoots and hollers are serious business:
They’re innate — and important — social tools.

By Robert Provine | //psychologytoday.com

Whether overheard in a crowded restaurant, punctuating the enthusiastic chatter of friends, or as the noisy guffaws on a TV laugh track, laughter is a fundamental part of everyday life. It is so common that we forget how strange — and important — it is. Indeed, laughter is a “speaking in tongues” in which we’re moved not by religious fervor but by an unconscious response to social and linguistic cues. Stripped of its variation and nuance, laughter is a regular series of short vowel-like syllables usually transcribed as “ha-ha,” “ho-ho” or “hee-hee.” These syllables are part of the universal human vocabulary, produced and recognized by people of all cultures.

Given the universality of the sound, our ignorance about the purpose and meaning of laughter is remarkable. We somehow laugh at just the right times, without consciously knowing why we do it. Most people think of laughter as a simple response to comedy, or a cathartic mood-lifter. Instead, after 10 years of research on this little-studied topic, I concluded that laughter is primarily a social vocalization that binds people together. It is a hidden language that we all speak. It is not a learned group reaction but an instinctive behavior programmed by our genes. Laughter bonds us through humor and play.

(NICEEEEE ;) 60 Humorous Print Advertisements to Tickle Your Bones

Written by: Terrance

Everyone needs a little humour in their hectic lives and more often than before, advertisers try to inject some fun into their advertisements. Injecting humour into their advertisements does not necessarily mean that the ads are better than others. However, the smart play on words and careful consideration of the ad’s objectives, target audience and market standards, humour can help the advertisement increase effectiveness and widen its receptiveness.

When using humour as a creative strategy, advertising firms agree that it increase audience attention, at least on the first few exposures to this form of persuasive communication. However, we cannot deny the fact that audiences’ patience has shrunk and their attention span is shorter as compared to the past.
