Truth behind the humor

I have to agree with a lot of people who say that you can get a lot more people to pay attention to and retain information if it is put into a humorous form.  Just look at the success of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report.  Sure, they are fake news programs, but there are kernels of truth there—or should I say truthiness—and for a lot of people those programs are their main source of news.

This method is used to great effect in this link: http://www.cracked.com/article_18611_the-10-most-important-things-they-didnt-teach-you-in-school.html The article is funny and irreverent, but it it also imparts a good bit of wisdom.  Give it a read and see what you think.
