Stories, analogies and fables

Otherwise ninety-nine percent the world’s fairy tales would be outlawed and banned, and nearly all books , newspapers, films and every other media would not exist. For example, I tend to write fantasy stories, and add the humour via the methods described in this post. It’s not ‘laugh out loud’ hilarious humour, it’s more subtle and underlying, often giving the stories a dark undertone. This doesn’t appeal to everyone, but I have been successful with the style and had a lot of stories published. It’s worth mentioning that humour is subjective. What one person finds hilarious might irritate another. You can never hope to please everyone when writing a funny story, so don’t try to.

If you use more than 1 at a time, they do not exponentially add hilarity to the previous sentence. Humour needs to evolve and present itself naturally. If you chuck in a slapstick moment when your story doesn’t need it, it can disengage the reader. In ‘Shot in the Head and Left For Dead’ the main character, Dave, is in a band. He’s playing at Wembley Stadium in London and half the crowd have turned into zombies. It’s the way Dave observes, describes and reacts to what he’s seeing that makes the situation amusing.

You can learn a lot building character from watching that programme – Del Boy and Rodney are incredibly strong and identifiable. However, if Arthur acted like this on purpose, to gain attention or help, and the B&Q staff member was a kind young man named Jim who wanted to help Arthur, then the situation and their conversation could be presented in an amusing manner. It would have a point and add to the story, revealing character development and plot. In this situation, it’s not the bared willies and public urinating that’s funny, it’s the resulting conversation and reason behind the situation occurring in the first place. The second sentence in this paragraph delivers an element of humour without detracting from the description. This comes from Joshua’s voice – the way he sees and describes things. As the story is told in the first person, I used this tone throughout.

The family hung around the locksmiths, visited the shops again, and generally made a day of being at the little shopping centre. While working on the locks and the keys, the locksmith talked with the family about England, about America, about the rides at Las Vegas, about motor-homes, about business, about locks, about families and kids, about lots of things. A tale is told about the Buddha, Gautama ( BC), the Indian prince and spiritual leader whose teachings founded Buddhism.

The following day as Jane walks past the front of the store she stares at the parrot and she hears …… nothing. Fantastic attention-grabbing lift-the-flap book. Under every flap, there is a different dog hiding that will surprise your little one for sure. From the Pop-up peekaboo series from DK, this is a beautiful book that will make your little one smile. It seemed to hover there behind his closed eyelids. He opened them and stared at the far-off ceiling, spattered with nameless blobs and blots by the efforts of past occupants.

Misalignment at a basic level eventually produces problems at the level of tactical or operational implementation. Like a national football team, if a business fails at a tactical or operational level, the causes – and therefore the solutions – are generally much deeper than they seem. Here are some indicators of foundational weakness and vulnerability in the basic organization and ethos of the England national football effort. Success is difficult when foundations are flaky and misaligned. With a little imagination it is easy to relate these lessons/examples to the business world. “Poor little lads, they can’t get in,” she thought, “Parents these days just don’t seem to care.”

See also the sections on personality styles, multiple intelligence and learning styles, and motivation, which all relate to this story. A very old lady looked in the mirror one morning. She had three remaining hairs on her head, and being a positive soul, she said, “I think I’ll braid my hair today.” So she braided her three hairs, and she had a great day. This reversal followed and was largely due to decades of persistent lobbying and campaigning by organisations and individuals, many being families and descendents of the victims. It is not easy to imagine their suffering, especially of the widows and parents long since gone, for whom this decision came a lifetime too late.

“A man and a woman – away from home – probably never meet again..” Says the businessman. Some days later, looking in the mirror one morning, preparing for her day, she saw that she had only two hairs remaining. “Hmm, two hairs… I fancy a centre parting today.” She duly parted her two hairs, and as ever, she had a great day.
