The importance of humor cannot be understated. For humor
provides the ability to laugh at yourself and with others. An
ability that is cathartic for yourself and society. When we
laugh together, we can discuss the issues and concerns of
society in a more harmonious manner.
It is in this sense I have collect over the last several years
some of my favorite humor. I do not like disparaging humor and
will not post such humor. However, humor that pokes fun at
people and situations tickles my funny bone. I have shared this
humor with many of my friends, including friends that are poked
at (i.e. my Jewish friends, my Lawyer friends, my Teacher and
Cops friends, etc.), and they all agreed that the following
humor was not disparaging and indeed very funny and contains a
kernel of truth.
A true sense of humor is the ability to laugh at and disparage
yourself. Those that cannot do so do not have a true sense of
humor. And those that cannot abide laughing at themselves and
with others make the world a more depressing place to live on.
Also remember that;
“Anyone without a sense of
humor is at the mercy of everyone else.”
― William Rotsler.
