What is the definition of humor, and how is it different from yesterday’s daily wisdom word, Satire? Satire is using humor at the expense of someone else, in the process, ridiculing them. On the other hand, humor is quite positive and happy and necessary to survive life.
Let us take a look at the Webster definition of humor-1. The quality of being amusing or comic, especially as expressed in literature or speech. 2. the ability to express humor and make other people laugh. 3. a mood, or sate of mind. an inclination or whim.
Daily Wisdom Word Meaning-1. Having the ability to make others laugh through comical desires and the desire to make them laugh.
Humor is invaluable. Let’s face it. Our world can be a serious place to live in these days with war and famish and money problems. Humor allows us to cope with these things. Humor can take a frown, and turn it upside down, as my father used to say. Humor is safe. It makes people laugh without the expense of another’s feelings. You don’t use ridicule with humor. It is simply used to make others laugh.
Humor is a sense. Humor is a sense because some people have a good sense of humor and others don’t. Sometimes its the combination of two personalities that create humor. Have you ever been around someone that you laugh with, and not at? This is the combination of two personalities working together to produce this humor.
My best friend and I have the kind of humor that takes both of us to create the laughter. You may be funny to most people, but you not be funny to all people, so humor requires a good sense of judgement.
Humor can take the most terrible situations and make them better. I have had a really depressing day, and then had someone pop off with a good sense of humor with something funny, and turn my whole day around. One day in particular comes to mind.
My niece and son were playing in the basement when they were young children still in diapers. They took off their diapers and proceeded to take what was in them and smear it on the basement walls. Needless to say, when I went down to check on them, I was furious; that is until I looked at their little innocent faces and saw that they were just having fun. Both of them stood there minus diapers, and I just started laughing. As mad as I was, the humor took the sting out of the situation. That is how powerful humor can be.
There are different types of humor. There is humor with a sense of irony and humor with jokes that people tell that are actually funny because of the way they tell the jokes themselves.
Humor can take a dreary day and make you smile. Try this next time your having a bad day. Call a funny person, tell them about your problems and let them make you laugh. You will be surprised at what great therapy this is for you and your problems.
Thank you for reading about humor with me today, and have a blessed and beautiful day.
