We’ve been talking a lot about humour lately and how old people have such a different humour than we do, and wondering if in 30 years when we get older if our kids will think our humour isn’t funny at all. Anyway, Rachel found this article about humour comparing older and younger, it was interesting, but probably more timely for me than interesting which would make us all wonder why I am linking to is.

  • I don’t like the humour study.
    They need to have tested these old people 40 years ago, or wait and re-test the college kids and see if there is any difference with age.

    I suspect that the humour difference is cultural and as culture changed, the humour changed. Today’s culture is immersed in much more humour than the culture 65-90 year olds grew up in was.

  • never even looked at it that way, but i guess that does make sense, especially with the media and information age there is a lot more humour going around than i’m sure my grandparents enjoyed, which is why they probably enjoy slapstick humour a lot more, the humour they were exposed to.
