Can anything be funny, or are some things off limits?
I believe anything can be funny. Nothing is off limits. However some things may be inappropriate at the time. A lot of funny things are said out of context. I believe the content used is important in order to make something funny. Even the worse case scenarios can have funny moments. Something that I have realized that people find funny is to respond is a slow manner. People tend to find your reaction to be funny if you show that you don’t fully understand what is happening. Even though you may be fully aware of the situation the less you seem to know the funnier the situation becomes. For example if someone is calling you out and you respond with a “huh” they will find it funny that you don’t understand what is happening. Some of the cruelest jokes are the funniest because they are hard to believe. It is all about context and the reaction to a joke or story. Be aware of your surroundings and attentive to the emotions of the people around you. You don’t want to push someones buttons who can’t handle a joke.
