“How can you say that? It’s not funny to have psychological issues! You’re a horrible little human being!” Yes, I am! But psychology is more than therapy. It’s about humans and humans aren’t boring. I know because I’m part of human race (believe me, I AM).
Okay, so what’s funny about psychology? Well, think about observing how children interact. Oh boy, that’s funny! They are little selfish and egocentric humans that try to play with each other by themselves (this doesn’t make any sense, I know.).
It’s also funny if you think about human evolution. For example, I’m often wondering what was the thought process behind discovering all the condiments we use. And how many people suffered from eating the wrong plant (this is not so funny). Or what was the thought process before inventing ripped jeans. The corporations were like “Ok, these jeans have too much material in them and they look too new. Yack! Let’s make them look old and sell them as new!” Everything involves a thought process so everything was once a crazy (and maybe funny) idea. Seinfeld is one of them.
Oh, and if all of this makes no sense, don’t worry. That’s part of the funny side of psychology. When we mix stress, coffee, tiredness and a drop of hunger, the thought process tends to lose the logic. I guess that’s how Happy Tree Friends was created.
What do you find funny about psychology?
