Don’t ask me why, but if you add food into your public speaking presentation, you’ll get a laugh. For some reason food has established itself as a comedy tool. Many similes, metaphors, and jokes are related to food…one of the most famous advertising slogans is for Oscar Mayer in the song, “Oh I wish I was an Oscar Mayer Weiner.” This jingle automatically elicits a humorous response.
For a surefire way to enhance your public speaking event, tie in food. Just be warned that having snacks on hand is a good idea. People will get hungry!
