The Importance of Context

rogersgeorge on February 24th, 2017

Not a lot of content in today’s lesson, but some.

The source of the humor in this Freshly Squeezed is the misalignment of contexts. Context is the framework you operate in. The bully has no interest in getting his language right, and the kid who’s being picked on wants to deflect the risk by changing the subject, from a bullying context to a learning one. He didn’t exactly succeed, but he doesn’t seem to have expected to, either.

Anyway, at least in a less intimidating situation, it’s a good idea to match your framework of operation with your reader’s. You’ll communicate better.
