What's So Funny About Training?
The television show Sesame Street uses cartoons, stories, Big Bird, short films, and other humor-filled tools to educate youngsters. Many textbooks from grade school to grad school contain humorous cartoons and examples. In some firms, humor is used in training manuals, slides that summarize employee benefits, and role-plays that show how (or how not) to talk to the boss.
