The Funniest Picture For 0-18 Year Olds, Danny Fast, 2012, Photoshop.
About a month ago I started a project dealing with humour. I asked people to fill out a survey pertaining to what they find to be the funniest “things”, ie. types of humour, locations, people, actions, animals, etc. I divided the survey up into three age categories: 0-18, 19-33, and 34+.
This picture is the culminating answers given for the 0-18 age group.
People age 0-18 find the following to be the most funny:
Humour: Wordplay, Memes, Social Humour
People: Dumb People, Students, Fat Men, Asians
Places: High School Cafeteria, Washroom
Things: Sex Toys, Alcohol, Feminine Hygiene Products, Birthday Cakes, Tu-Tus
Animals: Talking Animals, Any Animal in Human Clothing, Cats, Monkeys
Actions: Laughing, Drinking/Doing Drugs, Summoning
I’ll be doing a presentation on American artist Paul McCarthy for school but I’m going to start talking about former Beatle Paul McCartney and see how long it takes for someone to stop me.
So you know how analyzing something you truly love ruins it completely?
That’s what I decided to do for my independent project.
I took an episode of Arrested Development and analyzed the comedic, plot, and character devices until it was no longer funny. It’s called Comedy Unraveled and comes in three 14-minute installments, totaling 42 minutes.
It’s really not funny at all. But that’s not the point.
