The core of humor is what I call the 2-of-6 rule. In order for something to be funny, you need at least two of the following elements:
Cute (as in kids and animals)
Recognizable (You've been there)
I invented this rule, but you can check for yourself that whenever something is funny it follows the rule. And when something isn't, it doesn't.
Now I realize why TVB has never really picked up steam the way I'd hoped. I just wasn't following the rules of funny.
So, herewith, the most-amusing TVB post ever:
Naughty (If by naughty, you mean evil.)
Bizarre (Acid flashback! Acid flashback!)
Clever (C'mon, would you have thought of combining a fork and spoon?)
Recognizable (Who doesn't do laundry?)
Cruel (Feel those shivers down your back yet?)
Now, stand back and watch the funny-seekers turn out in droves.
