Humor: Drawbacks

The humor genre is based on exaggeration, yet to make that exaggeration work, the protagonist will often seem to lack a few brains. So the reader will often see what the protagonist does not. This means common drawbacks of the humor genre include: 
  • the development of a superiority complex
  • the belief that anyone who thinks differently than you is stupid, because they "obviously" can't see the ridiculousness of their actions/beliefs.
  • mocking a person or God, rather than an action.
  • losing the respect we are to give others.
