Example text

Cultural differences within one society are not independent of one another. Although different groups within Dutch society have, to some extent, their own values, norms, ideas, and symbols that differ from those of other Dutch subcultures, taste and style are defined and formed in relation, and even in contrast, to tastes and styles of other groups (see Kuipers 2006a). Youth culture, for instance, often includes a more or less conscious rejection of the adult culture (Hebdige 1979; Thornton 1996).

Taste” does not usually point to matters of life and death but rather to mundane things like preferences for interior decoration, clothing, or television series. And yet, in judgments having to do with taste, preference or aversion is often highly present and deeply felt. Social boundaries are sharply delineated by what seem to be trivial matters, in which “tastes differ”. Given that this book presents mostly research into my own society, and another society with which I am quite familiar, I was very much aware of these opinions on good and bad taste throughout my research.

All these interviewees, under fictitious names, will be cited frequently in this book. The group of thirty-two was a sample taken from a group of 340 Dutch people who had filled in a questionnaire about jokes and humor in 1997–1998. In addition to this, I collected thousands of jokes: I found them on the Internet, in joke books and magazines, in archives, and as told to me by friends, acquaintances, and people whom I interviewed. Differences in the appreciation of jokes touch upon three of the most important social distinctions in the Netherlands: gender, age, and social class.
