Are you looking for new and fun ways of spending your free time? You already know that the Internet is a great source of entertainment and a second world, probably even more powerful than the real one, for many teenagers all over the world. In addition to turning the world into a small village and allowing everyone to get together, irrespective of time and location, the Internet is home to virtually endless means of entertainment. |
This article addresses teenagers in general and the teenager French community in Canada in particular, as we are going to discuss something that is of interest to them more than to anyone else. I am talking about jokes, funny videos, absurd humor, buffoonery or French comedy (farces, blagues, gags d’humour, humour absurd, bouffonnerie) that target your particular age.
Of course, everyone likes a good joke or a funny video. After all, the saying “laughter is the best medicine” wouldn’t go around as much if it weren’t true. However, different age groups appreciate different kinds of humor. The kind of jokes and comedy (farces et comédie) that teenagers find most humorous may seem kind of dull to adults and the other way around.
When it comes to French humor, no one can understand it better than the French themselves or people of other nationalities who have been in contact with the French way of living and their culture. If you ask someone outside these categories about French humor, they will most likely say that it’s over their head or at least a bit curious. But I think it’s safe to say that this goes for every country in the world and their humor and comedy. An outsider will never fully comprehend the specific hints and allusions behind a joke and thus won’t be able to enjoy it the way someone familiar with that particular humor will. This is the reason why the contents of this article target French teenagers in Canada particularly. The Internet is home to many sources of comedy and absurd humor (comédie et humour absurde) that only they would enjoy the most.
When you’re with your friends, in the real world or the virtual one, there is no better way of being in the spotlight than by being funny and telling good jokes. Of course, not everyone wants to be the center of attention, but it sure feels good to be able to make the others laugh. Not all of us are natural born comedians, but that can be improved. With a few good jokes and sallies (blagues et boutades) that you can find online, you will certainly get your friendly laughing and enjoying your company, whether you get together online or in the real world. Having an insight on French comedy and the kind of jokes that French teens like will also help if you’re planning on spending some time in with them, for instance in a summer camp or as part of a school exchange program.
The bottom line is that teens have many places to go to online when they want to find jokes, funny videos or absurd humor (farces, gags d’humour ou humour absurde). It’s always a matter of personal taste when it comes to humor, but there are websites where all the teen French living in Canada will find jokes and funny videos that they will absolutely love.
