We all know "funny" when he encounter it, but just what's going on inside the human mind when we snicker at the word "wiener" or revel in a well-crafted pun? In this episode of Stuff to Blow Your Mind, Julie and I dive into the world of humor to discuss the evolutionary purpose of humor and just how it changes the world around us.
Is there really a universal theory of humor? We break down some of the core theories before examining the latest attempt to sum all our laughs up in one theory of everything. And yes, we will discuss why the words "duck" and "cheese" are funny, while "table" is a word that has never produced laughter.
Plus laughing rats! Strange words that Julie knows! Tickling! God-killing Jokes! Botox smiles! Laughter yoga! All this and more in a single episode.
