Tragic and unexpected news always makes me wonder, “When is it going to be OK to be funny again?” Because to me, funny=normal and that’s what I really want, is normalcy. (Which is really to say, I wish for the sad thing not to have happened at all.) I remember reading several interviews of various comics about how they wondered that very thing after 9/11.
I don’t know the answer. But I need some funny today after sad news about a friend’s family, and so I’m sharing with you a few of the tweets I’ve favorited on Twitter over the years. (You can see the whole list here.) Some of them may appeal only to my weird sense of humor, but I do think a couple of them are pretty universally hilarious.
What’s made you laugh recently? I would be most glad to hear. I’m feeling a need for a good dose of that best medicine.
