Food is Funny
Food, when used properly can be very funny. Proper preparation of food
can be used in a variety of ways which you will learn in your public
speaking course. It can make a point or add humor when properly presented.
I heard a comic many years ago say 'Life is a Twinkie.' When there is
no other way to explain some office calamity I say, 'I guess life is
just a Twinkie.' It breaks off the tension so I can tackle the problem.
There are many funny foods like chicken soup, meatballs and Bill Cosby's
favorite, Jello. If you majored in philosophy, you might find a deeper
meaning in the Twinkie line. However, most of the rest of us would agree
that the line was just used for its comedic value. After you finish
your public speaking course you will be able to create wordplay that
will do wonders to jazz up your presentation, and that ain't chopped
