Q:

What are some funny quiz questions?

A:

One classic funny quiz questions is: What is an example of a non-vulgar four-letter word ending in "k" that means "intercourse?" The answer: Talk. The humour in this question lies in the fact that another word immediately springs to mind; much of the power of humor comes from setting up expectations and then subverting them.

  • Q:

    What things are funny all around the world?

    A:

    Because human culture differs so greatly across the globe, there probably isn't anything that is universally found to be funny by even the majority of people in all cultures, though there may be some things that certain people are amused by fairly reliably, such as jokes that involve peril or easily recognizable mistakes. However, humor is such a subjective thing that it's unlikely that there really is anything that will be likely to make everyone laugh in spite of differences such as age, gender, national identity, cultural identity, class and education. There is some scientific effort devoted to studying humor, but most of this research seems to uncover differences rather than common threads.
