  3. Of all the different types of writing humor may be the most (perishable jovial) because each generation has its own idea of what is funny.

    This sentence is saying that some humor goes out of style and is perishable. Humor often makes use of current slang or people or events. For instance, I don't understand some current humor because I don't know anything about rock stars and their slang. You probably wouldn't understand humor about K-rations or crooners.
