    Scott Adams wrote this in his Dilbert Blog about the elements of humor

    Quote:
    I wrote on this topic more extensively in my book, The Joy of Work. So I’ll just give you the highlights here. The core of humor is what I call the 2-of-6 rule. In order for something to be funny, you need at least two of the following elements:

    Cute (as in kids and animals)
    Naughty
    Bizarre
    Clever
    Recognizable (You’ve been there)
    Cruel

    http://dilbertblog.typepad.com/the_dilbert_blog/2005/12/humor_formula.html

    Here is my favorite Dilbert cartoon. It is the only one I have ever saved. The date on it is 11/9/1995. I ran a check on it, and I think it hits all six.

    Cute - Saint Dogbert -
    Naughty - enters the land of Cubicles -
    Bizarre - searching for Demons of Stupidiy.
    Recognizable - Suddenly he finds an over-promoted computer guru spouting useless database concepts ("You'd be fools to ignore the boolean anti-binary least square approach.")
    Clever - Dogbert shouts "Look! Actual Code!"
    Cruel - Co-worker shouts COOL! as the monster is dispatched to Dark world by the sight of its most feared object.

    I have from time to time used white out to substitute the following for "boolean anti-binary least square":
    * Corba Application Server
    * n-tier business server
    * Rational Extreme Application Development
    * Voice XML Server
    * Push Technology Server

    Pointy-Haired Boss: Dilbert, I'd like you to meet Ben, our new fast-track manager.
    Dilbert: Hi.
    Pointy-Haired Boss: Ben has no real experience but he's very tall, so we know he'll go far.
    Ben: I also have executive-style hair.
    Pointy-Haired Boss: We think it will turn silver.

    I made a large copy to hang on my cube and substituted "CORBA Application Server" over a whited out "boolean anti-binary least square approach." It got laughs for months.
