Everyone appreciates humor. Sometimes it’ll makes you laugh; other times it’ll make you groan. You may get the punch line of a joke immediately, or you may take you a while to “get it.” Wherever you land on the humor spectrum, you can always include it on your site. This can be done by creating your own; borrowing from other sites (with permission); or simply making a list of your favorite humor sites. Following are 4 types of humor posts you can to your site.

Here’s a joke from one of my Facebook Friends, Diamand NdaRuff. She’s naturally funny, but this was a good joke. Ok, I thought it was hilarious, but I could be a little goofy.

Parody is the art of mock something or someone or being satirical. You can often find political figures and celebrities the subjects of both. In the past, this form of humor was limited to print.
