Everybody likes people with ready wit. Mark Twain and Groucho Marx were well known for their sparkling wit. Oscar Wilde's witticisms took potshots at people. Even today, wit is considered 'cool.' So how do you hike up your cool quotient?
Start by practicing with funny quotes. If you have some witty lines up your sleeve, you can use them during casual conversation, formal speech, and even on social networking sites. Also, wish your friends and family members on their birthdays with funny birthday messages. Soon people will take notice of your sense of humor.
