Humor is Humerus

Welcome to Marriage

Humor is a “funny” thing.  Har har.  Sometimes humor is not too humerus:

Humerus

If you’re not careful with your jokes, you’ll offend someone, which could by touchy.  (Did I mean touché?)

Touche

I do not like to see or make jokes that hurt people or animals, or humor that promotes violence, or disrespects religion, or is a little too risqué, or pokes at disenfranchised groups of people.  Bad humor propagates bad memes and bad manners.  I’m a member of several of those disenfranchised groups.   Yet once in a while, I don’t mind making funnies at my own expense.  It’s a release valve of sorts.  So here is a quaint, disjointed selection of humor that may or may not be funny or politically correct, as I let off some steam:

Scene from one of my favorite movies, Young Frankenstein:

The first photo, featuring Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, Jr, strikes a serious chord for me.  After my daddy died when I was 5 years old, I was smitten with the I Love Lucy show.  I never missed an episode if it was within my control.  But I never cracked a smile either, even with Lucy’s hilarious shenanigans.  Seems I was watching the program to understand what a loving and functional family was really like.  Lucy and other popular comedies from that era instilled in me an idealized notion of marriage and family.  Later on, it was The Waltons:

And later on, it was the lesser-known TV series The Wonder Years.  I would have given anything to be the Fred Savage character:

All these dreams, all these deeply held wishes, is what fueled my vulnerability to my psychopathic wife. Humor, music, art — they are intertwined and they make us human and make us what we are. Let us try to use them to understand and to heal.

About DogDharma

Dog Dharma is written by a human who loves dogs and who believes dogs have attained enlightenment. The human behind Dog Dharma came from humble origins, has faced many trials, enjoyed many adventures, and taken a path less traveled. He claims no special privilege or expertise, and remains humble. Dog Dharma‘s author has learned a few things along the way, and has much yet to learn. He has been told by many people that he has a talent for writing, and aspires to write a book, but is a little too lazy and disorganized, so his blog will suffice for now. He opens a window into his life in the hope that some of his words may be of comfort, some may be a beacon or warning, and perhaps he will connect with like-minded souls. Everything shared comes from a place of openness and honesty, but with no claim that he possesses the Truth. People and places mentioned should be taken as pseudonyms. In many cases, details may be an amalgamation of actual events disguised to protect the “innocent.” Nothing written is to be taken as actual fact, but as the author of Dharma Dog‘s limited understanding.
