Thread Name: Our sense of humour? B/S
Subject: RE: Our sense of humour? B/S
Hooray Rick! One problem with laughing at those posts is that first you would have to read them. I have learned to "see it coming" as you said, and purposefully avoid reading specific content in some postings for a while. I think eventually, usually, after venting and lashing out, some incredible honest, sincere articulate writing takes place here....for most.
Turning the page back to "Our sense of humour" does anyone remember the skit that Pat Paulson did on the Smother's Brothers Comedy Hour in which he critically lectured about the American sense of humor being to laugh at other people's pain?? During the lecture he: slammed his hand in the desk drawer; got his foot stuck in the wastebasket and fell; hit his head on the desk...etc. Its still, in my fading memory, the funniest skit I've ever seen.
