One of the other things I think you need to understand in order to get why I think this works is the idea of tickling many different things at once.
Because I think something being funny is related to it being dangerous, and I think our Lizard Brain's have evolved to be scared of almost everything, I think that something can be funny in a huge number of ways all at once, and in fact I think this is more often the case than not.
Actually, I'll go one further. I think that the best, most successful, comedy is actually specifically that kind of comedy which is funny at many different levels at once. I think at times when something is really truly funny there has to be at least a few different things happening at once.
This is the thing I'm interested in really. Is it possible, taking this theory as a starting point and then trying to pull apart some of those things
