… should on no account be allowed to do the job."
Those immortal words of Douglas Adams ring more true every time I read them. Such is the cutting edge of humor that while many a skilled converser can easily turn pirouettes past the soldiers of logic, all writhe in tormented fluster beneath the wit of the comedian's tongue.
Inside its power to amuse and belittle our troubles to sweet laughter lies the bitter sadness of truth, for we laugh at the absurdity of how things are more than anything else in life. Truth will always be stranger than fiction perhaps (no narritive imperative to worry about), but it will definetely always be funnier as it is always more tragic. I wish we all new how to laugh.
