Then I started to visualize me self from the point of view of the person I singled out… My jokes didn’t seem funny, they were aggressive almost. They made me feel disgusted almost, I know better than to act that way towards others. After all, I’ve been the butt of many jokes, some of them I found absolutely hilarious, some not so funny or kind. So I know from experience how they might feel, but how am I to know for sure since I’m not them. I can’t bear to see my friends hurt like that so I text him up “Hey, sorry about the rude jokes earlier hope they didn’t hurt ur feelings!
But I am sure that after reading that introductory phrase, some readers had an urge to laugh. People always talk about how they are "just kidding," or how we should "relax, it's just a joke." However, that is precisely the point. Joking about a race, color, or nationality is not funny--it is discrimination. The word prejudice literally means to "prejudge."
I had to continue trying.. How could I be funny in one language and culture, and not be in another language and culture? Best I could muster was slapstick and self-deprecation. Begging for laughs was clearly the only option left. Simultaneously, hearing my native Korean peers crack jokes that to me were horrendously unfunny, and generally being unable to partake in the joy of Korean TV shows and dramas, was also very discouraging. I often felt excluded and incomplete as a Korean trying to fit back in.
He had made many ignorant decisions because he did not want to listen to Cassius. The first time Brutus showed this trait was when Cassius warned Brutus many times about the danger of Mark Antony. Brutus simply thinks the good of people, not ever wondering if he does one action, if the other person might retaliate. He let himself get fooled by Mar... ... middle of paper ... ...o go second so you can counter the other person’s argument. Brutus, even when his mind has good intention it is also littered with ignorance.
These mocking tactics are only discouraging to people that hold different beliefs than the author. This lack of calmness and rationality is a major downfall in terms of the essays persuasiveness. Lastly, Van Gelder uses weak reasoning to persuade the readers of her
And with any luck they will come to feel positively towards us. This is such a joke on so many levels. The obvious fallacy is that even if people do form a friendship or some other relationship with us, it will not be our true self that they are seeing. This is the reason we feel so unworthy of the love that people offer us. In the back of our minds we know we have been conning them and do not deserve their love.
They think embarrassing others is funny, and also they could be trying to show off because they think c... ... middle of paper ... ... And also you shouldn't take photos or videos of someone else without their permission because some people get mad when you take a photo or video of them without them knowing. Another way to prevent cyberbullying is by watching your tone while you communicate online. People get mad when you have a rude tone while you are speaking to them. One good thing to do is don't send texts or messages when you are mad. The argument of this is that cyberbullying is getting out of hands, and needs to be stopped.
I do not really think I would like Louis CK as a person off the stage. Most of the things he says repulse me or I disagree with (family and kids). So I am not necessarily intrigued by him as a person, but rather I am intrigued in the way his stories can make me laugh. I like how when I watch his stand up I never really know what he is going to day next. I know it will be hysterical, but he tells a wide range of stories so it keeps his performances ambiguous to the audience.
He fully shows that people use irony incorrectly, and it is to their disadvantage. 	Gordon has a particularly negative view on how much irony is used today. The thesis in his essay is not clearly stated, but his implied argument is that the overuse of irony has made society cynical. This negative view comes across to the reader through sentences such as the following, after Gordon has explained the technical meaning of irony, "In today’s context, irony is a sensibility that values cleverness and style above passion and commitment. It attacks bad taste by seeming to celebrate it.
I am not funny. If you were to ask my friends, they would inform you that I am only funny when I am not trying to be, as in the times when I trip and fall (which happens more often than I would like) or perform some other unintentional folly. If you were to ask someone else who doesn’t know me well, I am certain that “awkward” or “quiet” would be the words chosen to describe me far more often than “hilarious”. When I do try to be funny, I am generally aware that my jokes are bad; I rely on corniness and silly mannerisms rather than wit to elicit laughter. Due to my own shortcomings in the comedy department, I am genuinely curious about humor.
