Generate Materials for Laughter

After you become better at making women laugh, you’ll be more concerned with finding new sources to generate humor materials.

The key is using your imagination.

By “imagination” I don’t mean a one-time brainstorming session where your humor is tested against the woman you talk to.

I’m referring to those so-called “silly fantasies”—a daily activity of asking yourself hypothetical questions on everything you see, hear, and feel.

Look around yourself now. What do you see? Table, chair, lamp, book, or people? I want you to make up a funny story involving these objects. What would the chair say to the table beside it? Or what if your butt suddenly starts talking? Free your mind and make up a funny story.

The story might be absurd the first few times you do this, but please don’t curse yourself. If you perform this routine consistently, you’ll soon find inspirations pouring in. My experience tells me that your learning curve will start to rise sharply within 1 to 2 weeks.

Examine some popular humor columns. The majority of them are outright funny observations of current events or day-to-day activities that you and I often take for granted. Now it’s time to start making a conscious effort in creating funny stories, images, conversations, etc. from the material that you see and hear on a daily basis.

When you overhear other people talking on the bus, pretend you’re one of them and try out some funny lines with yourself. You’ll soon find it natural to respond to people with a good sense of humor, and you’ll be surprised at your progress. Plus, it’s a great way to kill boredom.

Another simple way to train your “humor muscle” is to link completely unrelated concepts whenever you can. It’ll be very entertaining, and you’ll understand why TV-shows like “Whose Line Is It Anyway” is so popular.

It also proves that humor is often about associating diverse concepts together. (Again, imagination is the key here). For example, when you see milk, you may extend your thought to “breast-milk”. What are the differences? Well, one difference is the “ingredient”. Now you can go one step further and ask, “If mother’s milk was actually hazardous to some babies, where should they place the warning label?”

Keep on taking these “humor Rorschach tests” and have fun!
