How Witty Are You Really?

 

 

Different people have a different sense of humor. This is the beauty of human beings. We may all be almost genetically identical beings but yet we are so different. There are many people who love sarcasm. Some people are naturally sarcastic and it makes the conversation fun with them. Though be careful if you are being sarcastic because it has been found that sarcastic comments hurts people more than blunt criticism. I don’t know if the research has found its place in famous peer-reviewed journals so take it with a grain of salt.

There are many other such research papers related to comedy. Slapstick humor is also one of the most common ones. It basically involves physical pain like smack in the head, pokes in the eyes and many other such things. It is often considered as of low quality in the comedy world but still many of the works have managed to become world-famous and is also considered of high quality be the critics. Though it is a very old form of comedy but still you could see in many of the plays in small theaters.

Many of them have been written a long time ago so keep that in mind. Humor which is considered of high quality is witty humor. It is highly praised by the critics and people also love it. It requires quick thinking and knowledge of the thing you are talking about. It leaves a lasting impression on anyone whom you meet for the first time. Many actors and actresses are known to use this type of humor to answer mean questions asked by journalists.I hope you liked my short article.

“A pause followed my greeting. Then “We’re watching you ” whispered the voice on the other end.

“I am not shy about admitting my modest talents. For example, I am happy to admit that I am better than average at clever remarks, and I also have a flair for getting people to like me. But to be perfectly fair to myself, I am ever-ready to confess my shortcomings, too, and a quick round of soul-searching forced me to admit that I had never been any good at all at breathing water. As I hung there from the seat belt, dazed and watching the water pour in and swirl around my head, this began to seem like a very large character flaw.”
― Jeff Lindsay, Dearly Devoted Dexter

― George W. Bush

“When people are missing out in their choices and cannot make a distinction between cheery, witty, funny, filthy or scurrilous walks of life, they will have a hard time to inhabit a pleasing and enriching life; and to integrate into a world of understanding and recognition. (“Love lying fallow ” )”
― Erik Pevernagie

“A funny person is funny only for so long, but a wit can sit down and go on being spellbinding forever. One is not meant to laugh. One stays quiet and marvels. Spontaneously witty talk is without question the most fascinating entertainment there is.”
― Diana Vreeland, D.V.
