The use of funny persuasive essay topics is a technique of presenting a new insight into some ideas through essay writing. Lighthearted presentation of facts elucidating the new ideas can appeal to both young and adult readers who might find them amusingly convincing. Topics used for persuasive essays have some academic value if they can be defended by the essay writer through facts and figures that are available on the subject matter. Topics vary according to the desires of the writer or the teacher that ordered the essays to be written.

Degree of Difficulty of Topics Assigned to Essayists

Not all writers are comfortable in writing funny essays so the techniques of using funny persuasive essay topics are taught to students at different educational level. The topics are to be categorized into the three, namely, secondary schools or 6th to 8th grades, High School and College. The reason for the segregation of topics into these categories has something to do with the degree of difficulty that topics present to students.
