Creativity **IS** a Laughing Matter

Join us to look at the creativity behind the everyday joke.  We will look over a short description of Arthur Koestler's definition of "Bisociation" (1964) and then examine a few jokes to see how the bisociation concept creates the tension in a joke that is released in laughter.

We will be looking at only verbal jokes AND only those kinds that you can tell to your mom.
