Reading other blogs is a great source of inspiration. When I read Bottledworder’s recent post about writing humour, I nearly commented there and then. However, I was rather pressed for time and clicked away.
On reflection I realised I have enough material for a post of my own on the same topic.
One of my most successful posts is a joke I wrote in response to a Daily Prompt. Three Men…
Often I see humour where none is intended. Earlier this week I read a tweet in which a famous person was mentioned. Children were decorating a Christmas tree with the Archbishop of Canterbury. I imagined him as the fairy on top of the tree!
I think it is amusing to write about something unexpected. On my other blog I often throw in some sort of non sequitur or red herring. After all, isn’t predictable a synonym for boring or a best uninteresting?
Humour may be blatant or subtle, wordplay or slapstick.
The humour tag is good for stats, but not necessarily for likes!
Have I made you laugh, smile or…what’s that, you’ve left already?
I don’t think that’s funny, you could at least have read to the end!
