The 10 ways we laugh. - MARKETING Magazine Asia


The 10 ways we laugh.

On the subject of laughter, we are delirious to yak about the different types of laughs we hear in our lives.

You will surely recognise your colleagues and friends by the way they laugh. The next page has audio links and we have attached some cheeky narrative for each type of laughter (few seconds each).

You have to click on the red text to enjoy. Earphones not included!

1. The Towkay: throaty confidence with a sneaky threat of gangsta. He’ll make you an offer you can’t afford to refuse.

2. The Jumpstart: a quick yelp before realising one has become noticeable. Can giggle with raised eye brows while sipping hot Chinese tea from an oversized mug and looking directly at you.

3. The Executive: unsure if a full throttle guffaw is warranted in the presence of the Board. Always on guard to stay safe and will survive any management changes.

4. The Exploder: First to jump the gun on any joke to look smart. Fantasises his laughter is infectious and that a shriek will start a movement.

5. The Follower: Confuses breathing with laughing, so goes with the flow but very conscious makeup is not affected. More obvious is that spittle is restrained intermittently by a hand gesture.

6. The Pimp: Don’t mess with this one, they reinvent their laugh as they go along and normally do so with their eyes wide open. Either sole proprietor or scavenging free-lancer in the throes of good cashflow.

7. The Gotcha: Biologically akin to the incessant hyena. They are big eaters with time on their hands wearing large watches.

8. The Attention Seeker: They laugh till they cry, prevalent amongst emos and vamps. The jokes are irrelevant to them, so long as they are heard.

9. The Bully: Dreams of being a voice-over talent with a perpetual boom mike in tow. Only tameable by a domineering wife or mother-in-law.

Double click here to hear.

10. The Blurred: Have no idea if they are coming or going. The world does not laugh with them, as the whole point is actually pointless.
