I wrote this one in the Fall of last year, and I have come close to running it half a dozen times. I finally did but its wordiness bugs me.
Since the verbosity, itself is part of the gag, but not really, so much, the content, I think it would hit sooner and harder if the thought bubble overlapped the second panel a bit.
I don’t think that the disparagement theory of humor is really due to Kant (see his Critique of Judgment for more info on that). Also, complex humor isn’t a counter-example against the disparagement theory. Not that that matters much, as I suspect the point of the cartoon is how little the theories about humor actually match up to what is really funny.
Ah, but the tenured professor soiling himself is a person of high status being humiliated.
check out the theory of humor “benign violation”
really matches up to what’s really funny ^_^
