Hello everyone! This is Jamie, Katelyn, and Danielle speaking to you!!! We hope you've been enjoying our unique sense of humor with the topics we have chosen to present. Humor is such an interesting topic because it's part content and part personal "flavor". Lets face it, there are some things we personally find funny and others well... not so much. We thought humor would be a great topic because yeah, it's funny... haha... but we also felt this would be a highly recognized topic. It's a good topic worth discussing because since communication has changed and evolved so much over the past decade it's almost harder to really establish when someone is being funny virtually. Stop and think about when someone says something like "Gosh, man you're dumb"... Ok is this is an insult, or someone joking, or whatever? You can't really tell unless you understand the tone of the conversation or if they add something like "lol" or "rofl". With humor in Social Media, the same kind of idea applies but it's a little bit easier to identify the "funny" in the topic, once again based on personal taste.
Here's an example we all thought you would appreciate:
Ok, so this is from the movie Moulin Rouge and it's not the PERFECT example, but it will do. As you watch the beginning of this clip you'll note that the two characters appear to be doing some humorous actions. Well first off, it's not what you think! They are on two totally different spectrums (as you'll see in the clip or if you watch the movie.) Now some people would find this as really funny because of the content and dialogue in this scene, others may view it as this is gross and down-right weird. Whatever your view is that's fine. You may find it funny on your own but to others.. it may be different. As Katelyn just said "THANKS TO YOUTUBE, YOU CAN LAUGH ON YOUR OWN!" It's true though. YouTube, as another form of Social Media, really brings us this quantity of content that allows us to adapt your own view of humor.
Well, that about does it for us for this round! Til the next... have fun!!!!
