GUEST,Jeri Tech: Can closed threads be re-opened? (175* d) RE: Tech: Can closed threads be re-opened? 16 Feb 05

Yeah, Jon. Rick loved stuff like that. He'd crack up over stuff he thought was funny because... it wasn't funny. He once accused me of 'not getting it'. I told him I understood why he thought it was funny - I just didn't think it was funny. My sense of the absurd is growing keener these days, and I'm much more appreciative of absurdity, due in no small part to Shambles 'War on Whatever'.

Some days it's funny, and some days it's boring. It was amusing to see him write tons of stuff while avoiding writing even one simple answer to any question I asked. It's amusing to see how many different variations he can come up with on what's basically one theme. It's like people who tell the same joke over and over. The joke stops being funny, but the absurdity in the repetition can be hilarious. Theater of the absurd, several light years past 'too far'. Mudcat's own Andy Kaufman.

"Is discomfort comedy really comedy? Yes and no. It depends on what you think is funnmy [sic]. It's a matter of comedy-faith and your frame of reference, and whether you are in the audience or an audience watching the audience suffer."
