Is being funny an art or a craft?
Depending on who's being funny it can definitely be just a small craft - a virtual peddle boat's worth of amusement. I wonder if I am in fact funny or just nuts - suppose it doesn't matter really.
Making people laugh is a form of medicine. I definitely don't need to "beak" at you on the restorative powers of laughter. Though being gorped at by someone who thinks they're funny, someone who's actually not funny at all, is pretty much like being pecked to death by a duck.
One does wonder about the physical and emotional state of the comic though. Are we really all crying on the inside or is that just because we are never getting paid for our ...Art ...Craft ...thingy?
I think walking around with a banana as a phone has become re-funny with the invention and popularity of the cell phone. I still want to get one of those Fisher Price giant plastic phones for the car - I think those phones were on wheels actually so, ahhh, who needs the car.
Let's make giant phones that you can drive instead of really small phones for giant cars.
I gotta go, my car's ringing....
