Join me for a chat about what makes things funny

Dan Ariely is offering a Behavioral Economics MOOC. As part of the emotions lesson, I present a guest lecture on how the benign violation theory explains what makes things funny.

Pretend that you are taking the class and join the Google chat on Friday, May 3rd at 5:00 PM Eastern (3:00 Mountain).

Keep this a secret, please. I could get in trouble.
