Man feels bored. And laughter is the antidote. You cannot live without
laughter; because you can negate your boredom only through laughter. You cannot ﬁnd a single joke in
primitive societies. They don‘t have any jokes
"A joke moves in two dimensions. First it moves in a logical dimension. You can conceive it. If the joke
goes on logically to the very end, it will cease to be a joke; there will be no laughter. So suddenly the joke
takes a turn and becomes so illogical that you cannot conceive it. And when the joke takes a turn and the
result becomes illogical; then the expectation, the tension that was created in you, suddenly explodes. You
relax. Laughter comes out.
"Laughter is the relaxation. But tension is ﬁrst needed.
