Throughout modern scientific history, studies conducted under various levels of control and garnering various levels of acceptance in the academic community have come to a common conclusion regarding the concept of humor: it is good. This is especially true in both educational settings and when dealing with controversial subjects. The Presidential Press Dinner, for example, is always an opportunity for a president to unite people in laughter regardless of their approval rating.

Humor can also be useful when education is the purpose. According to an Israeli study, college students retained information more effectively from lectures in which humor was utilized than from lectures that were kept devoid of humor.

This is why BocaRaton.com & The Bites! Network decided to start the “Laugh Yourself Green” project. Environmental protection is often a controversial subject. Many blame environmentalism for the current “energy crisis”, and some people even see environmentalism as a conspiracy to increase government regulation and drive America towards communism. In lieu of engaging in the traditional Internet shouting match, BocaRaton.com & The Bites! Network strives to make environmentalism fun. We have assembled a team of comedians who are willing and able to use their refined mastery of the art of humor to engage the community on issues such as global warming, habitat loss, and environmental contamination. We hope to resonate with the community in order to create a social wave that will go on to solve these problems.

BocaRaton.com is hosting an event next year, if you are interested in sponsoring or joining the event please Email us at Laugh@BocaRaton.com or call 561.338.7877
