Card #42

Humor Effect

Humorous items are more easily remembered—and enjoyed!.

How might this apply to the Web?

Why so serious? Almost any text is an opportunity to add humor. But don’t stop there; think about interactions and how they can be made humorous. Just as humor is injected into conversation, we can easily add humor to hover actions, button clicks, three-step processes and other user actions. In learning contexts, use humor to ease new knowledge acquisition and retention.
