The Dis/advantage of Having a Really Dark Sense of Humour
The advantage is that when the world is burning and crisis after crisis is coming at you, and most people are breaking under the strain, you aren’t in the same state of mind. So you can calm them down and help them think rather than feel.
The disadvantage is that you have to hide the fact that this shit is tickling your gallows’ humour at new levels and people look at you oddly now. Ooops I said that out loud? Um I really didn’t mean that snicker to be audible, sorry?
Up until the past week or so, I’ve had the comfort of watching really great comedic works. SO . MANY . OF . THEM!! And they stayed great till they decided to tell me how to vote, how to think. No no! Just do the rips, I’ll make the decisions thx!
I guess that is the difference between old style lampoons or social commentary and political agendas then?
….. Sighs!! …..
I’ve actually stopped watching some of my fave ones cuzz they got religion at the last minute (Pouts!!) So if you have some ideas? i’m ready to laugh again!!
One vision I have that I can’t seem to shake is:
(politics on my side of the border) Scheer, O’Toole and Singh’s barbershop routine of attacking Trudeau.
We think the P. M has lost his mind
No we cannot find a way to say something kind
So we’ll whine and cry, it’s do or die
Something must be found to remove his tie!
Oh what a tie!
We think the P. M has flipped his lid
No we cannot find a way to just get rid
Though we gnash our teeth and pull our hair out
All we have done is whine and shout
Oh how we shout!
There he stands, there he preens his locks
He croons his lady fans and us he mocks
We cannot find a way to get him out
Out damn spot! Out we must pout!
Oh how we pout!
At Trudeau the lout!
The lout! The lout!
