Transcript: Humor "Disecting humor is like disecting a frog, few people are interested and the frog dies of it." E.B. White The term derives from the humoral medicine of the ancient Greeks, which taught that the balance of fluids in the human body, known as humors (latin: humor, "body fluid"), control human health and emotion. Laughter occurs unconsciously.(like sneezing) You don’t decide to do it. While we can consciously inhibit it, we don’t consciously produce laughter. That’s why it’s very hard to laugh on command or to fake laughter. Men use humor to express closeness with other men by putting them down. Women would rather tell funny stories about things that have happened to them. According to our book the most important aspect of humor is a violation of our expectations.
