Drunk People Are Funnier Than Sober Ones!

Published

on

A small study has revealed the somewhat unsurprising truth that although having a drink (or five) may make you feel more humorous, your sober friends probably don’t agree.

 
Psychology Professor Peter McGraw and Journalist Joel Warner – who have teamed up to write a book entitled The Humor Code: A Global Search for What Makes Things Funny – conducted an experiment to investigate the relationship between alcohol and humor.
 
Twelve jokesters were selected for the study. The results speak for themselves. The drunker the participants of the study got, the funnier they considered their own gags to be and, in turn, the less funny they were actually judged to be by a sober panel as the night went on.
The participants were invited out for a night of drinking at New York’s Hurricane Club and each were asked to come up with a joke, deliver it, and then have another drink. After each repeating round, they were required to rate their drunkenness on a scale ranging from ‘sober’ to ‘sh*t-faced’.
 
They were also asked to rate their own jokes, on a scale from ‘slightly amusing’ to ‘hilarious’. All the jokes were later judged independently by a sober online panel.
 
As expected, almost without exception, the drunker the ad-men became, the funnier they judged their own jokes to be.
 
In actual fact, the jokes were judged to be at their funniest two or three drinks in, when enough ‘liquid courage’ had been consumed to loosen them up, but before too much of their judgement had been compromised.
The jokes submitted after the participants fourth or fifth stiff drink were judged by the sober panel to be much less amusing and often actually offensive.
 
‘Drinking reduces inhibition,’ Mr McGraw explains. ‘But it opens the door to failure, with failure likely to be on the side of going too far.’ ‘As people became more intoxicated, they thought they were funnier, but a sober audience didn’t see it that way,’ concludes Mr Warner.

HEART FX And Joe Jury Are Getting Us Warmer With Their New Single “King Without A Throne”

HEART FX And Joe Jury Are Getting Us Warmer With Their New Single "King Without A Throne"
After releasing their first single “Thinking Of You” on Flamingo Recordings, the Austrian duo, HEART FX consisting of Markus Schulz & Mario Staniek, mesmerize us with their newly-born release with its tongue-in-cheek title, “King Without a Throne“. As the leading voice softly goes “I’m looking for a place to settle down, yes it’s hard to find the shelter in this town“, it transfers us to the cavernous space created somewhere above our heads, reminding us that everybody gets lonely and nostalgic at times. And so do HEART FX, bewitching us with their music sensibility and mysterious aura. You might be a bit surprised that the following label is responsible for the release. It’s the Dutch Big & Dirty brand, previously standing for edgy club sounds, are now redefining themselves. As they say about their new direction “We aspire to travel the world, only to worry about deadlines. We encourage freedom of speech, still rather stay quiet than cause a scene. We aim for real friendships, but spend valuable time on our phones. Yet we find balance in music. (…)‘Cause music works like a drug.” However, if we are to believe that the most glorious form of art is, indeed, music, then – Big & Dirty and HEART FX get along perfectly.

Both, the mysterious yet symbolic title and seemingly fairytale artwork for the cover of the single, “King Without A Throne” touch us with their enigmatic and sensitive aura. Still, the production, with all its halo does not bring any naive or shallow atmosphere to the track, but it perfectly suits what we would love to hear in cold, autumn evenings or what we would like to dance to on vivid dancefloors being surrounded by electronic music lovers. Just like HEART FX like listening to sad music when they’re down and dance in their rooms when they’re excited. That magical set of contradictions is smoothened by music which keeps them in balance, and “King Without A Throne” makes an excellent example to believe that our fresh duo, HEART FX cannot imagine life without their queen – music, herself and they will surely surprise us with their next, forthcoming singles.

Chelsea Cutler – Wake Up (Remixes)
Out now through Ultra Music comes a wicked pair of remixes inspired by Chelsea Cutler’s ‘Wake Up.’ The East Coast hailing singer and songwriter has just signed with the prestigious label, and this month sees both Sondr and Cuebrick take on her enigmatic single.

► BUY / STREAM (CLICK HERE)

Sondr is up first with a delicately lilting remake, providing well-placed percussion and an easy sense of groove – layering Cutler’s vocals in waves over the top. The Cuebrick edit opens fluidly and with an air of serenity, before adding dynamic drum patterns, expressive chords and gathering tension with its progressive energy.

This remix package is a great introduction to the sounds of Chelsea Cutler, and both featured artists have put forward high caliber versions of the powerful ‘Wake Up.’
