I can say with a certain degree of confidence that the funniest people I have known have all carried a little bit of sadness with them. That’s the joke, you see? Something in their lives took the wool off of their eyes and they see the world for how it really is. All the trivialities that plague so many others simply cease to matter to them anymore. Maybe they understand that so much of what we are told is important is really just a load of shit yet they live in a world where there really is no other way. So they make jokes and make people laugh because its the only light they can ever create in a world that demands so much darkness. Oh, they’re funny for damned sure but are they ever laughing? If so, its never with the world. Always at it.
