Humor can bring warmth, reassurance, and most likely, laughter. Above all, it can generate a feeling of happiness that can become contagious. The experience of humorous writing should come with pure pleasure so that the reader's desire for it will grow continuously. This pleasure may be generated by riddles and jokes, comics and cartoons, or just plain old silly stories.
The world of fantastic nonsense and silliness and the reader's everyday world of people, pets, and the outside world may seem far apart. Humor allows the reader to move easily from one world to the other and to be at home in both places.
Humor is a delightful stress reliever and also illuminates some of the everyday weirdness that makes life so interesting.
