Public Speaking Course:
Food is Funny
Food can be very funny. As you will learn in your public speaking course, it can make a point or add humor when properly presented. I heard a comic many years ago say 'Life is a Twinkie.' When there is no other way to explain some office mishap I say, 'I guess life is just a Twinkie.' It breaks off the tension so I can tackle the problem.
There are a lot of funny foods like chicken soup, meatballs and Bill Cosby's favorite, Jello. If you majored in philosophy, you might find a deeper meaning in the Twinkie line. However, most of us would agree that the line was just used for its comedic value. After you finish your public speaking course you will be able to create wordplay that will do wonders to jazz up your presentation, and that ain't chopped liver.
