Laugh it Off

October 24th, 2006

“All anyone can do,” he said, “is laugh.”
Talib al-Sudani, writer/creator of Iraqi comedy news program, “Hurry Up, He’s Dead”

Is that the human reaction? When things get so bad you can’t imagine them worse, do you laugh? Is this what separates us from other animals? Is our sense of humor our humanity?

It sure seems like people who take things too seriously, can’t take a joke, aren’t really helping to fix this mess we’re in, but rather are making it worse.

So, laugh… laugh and find a way out.
