dc.description Plenary presentation delivered at the annual meeting of the International Society for Humor Studies, Krakow,Poland, 27th June 2012. en
dc.description.abstract In this paper I will explore the reception of jokes. I will use practical jokes as examples but my intent is to make claims about the reception of verbal jokes as well. I contend that joke reception arises from the interplay of three essential characteristics of jokes, namely their nature as aesthetic objects; their transgressive nature, and their playful essence. Jokes are artistic; jokes are bad if they are any good, and jokes belong to the realm of play. en
