Ha Ha Funny, But Not Funny

January 16, 2017

There are just some things that we laugh at, involuntarily of course, at first reading or seeing. Something that strikes our humorous neurons just so, that the giggle, chortle or outright belly laugh comes forth without any thought to political correctness, offensive nature or any other societal blockages that usually keep us protected from scornful, unbelieving looks and the occasional tirades from the Twitter and Facebook faithful.
It probably has something to do with our value system and the ridicule of something on the far end of our acceptance spectrum but then again there probably has never been any research done on this so we can not fall back on any studies to validate our suspicions. Invariably we just laugh and think about what we laughed at afterward and hope that we do not have to offer too many apologies later. Yet in our heart of hearts, there is a small chuckling voice whispering, “Now that, that was really funny.”
Sometimes though after much reflection, I come to think that we laugh some of the time in order to keep from crying.
