The Power of Humor

I just couldn’t resist sharing a bit of humor in the face of the present tragic times. Normally, I abhor ad hominem attacks. Sometimes, though, there doesn’t seem to be any other way to confront overwhelming destructive power…

  1. Hello Carol, yes this has done the rounds of social media here in the UK too, but nowhere near as much as disinfectant jokes. I fear we are in a similar position with our current leader who has been absent for several weeks having had Corona-19 himself but like Putin, he is already well known for delegating while he goes off somewhere nice to enjoy himself. Not on this occasion obviously. So I try to maintain a healthy sense of humour, I`d go bonkers otherwise. Rock on and keep the faith. Much love from across the ocean. Helen. xx

  2. MOST EXCELLENT!

    The only problem is there is nobody else worth voting for ………… an OLD empty box or a deranged lunatic!

    And people have the nerve to “believe” this is the best leadership this country can muster?

  3. Carol, Tubularsock thanks you for your attempt at cheering Tubularsock up a bit. Very, very kind.

    Both of these videos have made Tubularsock laugh aloud as Tubularsock straps his dynamite vest on to go out this evening and tend to business. Even as the government’s agents attempt to hinder Tubularsock’s movements with all this shelter in place business.

    The legal way around all this business is to dress as a turtle thereby carrying Tubularsock’s shelter with him! Cleaver yes?

    It was coyote’s idea.

        1. Thank so very much, Carol. Your kind readership touches my heart, you inspire me to continue with all the verve I can muster to counter the sanctimonious white-supremacist system behind uncountable brutal crime scenes by those using superior firepower at every stage to ethnically cleanse stolen lands and ancient cultures — all justified as divinely manifest blessings bestowed by their Western Civilization and Judeo-Christian “heritage.” Heritage imposed by bloated and fulsome imperial overlords who believe themselves manifestly privileged with “incomparable” virtue and designed in the image of a jealous whitewashed deity.

    1. I apologize for my belated reply to a comment that sadly still remains unresolved! 2020 was indeed a challenging year. My new year’s resolution is to try to reply to all of the comments that I didn’t respond to as a way to begin the new year that I hope will be kinder to us all. Sending my best wishes to you. 💜

      1. Hello, Carol, Happy New Year and best wishes. I must say, it’s wonderful to hear from you.
        Jackie and I are both OK and doing fine, thank you; looking after our birds and animals is keeping us occupied, a welcome distraction from the not so nice goings on around us.
        It’s snowing here at the moment with a biting northerly wind blowing in, courtesy of Scandinavia. That means extra rations for everyone, myself included, not that I need any; Jackie now calls me Porky Pig, and reckons I’ve got a wok under my jumper. Puppy fat, that’s all it is.

        1. It’s delightful to hear from you, Mick, and learn that you and Jackie are both doing well. This has been a challenging year, and I hope the new year will be kinder for all.

          Snow does mean more work! We get quite a bit here, although the weather has been milder and ours has been melting a bit on sunny days.

          Sending my best wishes to you and Jackie, and all the birds and animals in your care! 💜

    1. Ah, Pam. Please forgive my belated thank you for your kind words. I didn’t want to close out the old year without responding to all of the comments still waiting for a reply. Let’s hope this new year is kinder to all. 💜
