Examples Of Humor Devices
This is an example of verbal irony: “I had told them that I should not return until the morning, and had given them explicit orders not to stir from the house. These orders were sufficient; I well knew, to insure their immediate disappearance, one and all, as soon as my back turned”
If you do no know what verbal Irony is, it is a device in which one means does not match what one says.
Humor Devices
The next type of humor device is Situational Irony: I found this example in a book called Gym Candy by Carl Dueker: the main character named Mick Johnson was wanting to be a football player like his father when he grew up and he was having a hard time with strength and he was a good kid until he got addicted to steroids.
If you do not know what situational irony is, It is a device in which what one expects to happen does not actually occur.
Humor Devices
.The third one is my favorite which is sarcasm: This example is a personal experience. My sister and I were in Publix and my mother asked her to get some vegetables and we were right next to the vegetables but she did not know that and she went all the way across the store and when she passes me I said hay Miranda you missed the produce and she said thank you Sargent sarcasm.
If you do not know what sarcasm is, It is when you say something to try to be funny but in a rude way.
Humor Devices
Here is a funny type of Humor Devices and its called a Pun: The best way to communicate with a fish is to drop them a line.
A pun is a play on word based on the similarity of sound between two words with different meanings.
