This classification is shown in the table bellow, accompanied by a somewhat unsystematic but rather exhaustive review of many of the themes or "humorous scripts" that occur within each category.
1. Sexuality and gender
2. Shortcomings and social deviance
3. Sickness, suffering and death
5. Money and wealth
6. Power and authority
7. Stereotypes and relations with others [usually combined with one of the categories listed above]
