Funny

 

Sarcastic inside jokes, viral videos, Internet memes: what makes these funny? By looking at the nature of funniness through humor and laughter, Funny shows how analyzing humor can be serious business, turning a critical eye on the subject to get students both thinking and laughing. Funny calls readers to consider humor’s cultural and historical contexts through both contemporary and classic examples. Political humor, humor’s effect on health and well-being, and humor and social perspective name just a few of the diverse selections this timely reader offers.
