Wed Mar 25, 2020, 08:20 AM

Rev. Sharpton had me nearly spit out my coffee today on Morning Joe...

He characterized Trump's "it'll be over by Easter" as a "premature Resurrection."

Nobody on set was heard laughing, but I am still laughing...

I guess I have an untidy mind. So be it.

1. He also had some great advice the other day

Learned from his time in jail--Don't serve the time; make the time serve you. Use the time-out to become better, not bitter.

3. One thing I think I once heard him say "If you want to wear the crown,

you have to carry the cross."

His little homily today on MJ, brief as it was, I thought was perfect. He delivered a teeny Easter message, which I, a non-believer, could find reassuring...

7. Made me think of one of my own, actually

Trump's push to use the malaria medication for COVID-19 treatment is a case of premature innoculation.

I'll leave now. I do understand now is not time for levity, but uncomfortable laughs are laughs nonetheless.

26. Laughing in the face of death is healthy

Itís not the same as laughing at the dead and dying. It even has a name. Black humor. Itís a psychological release that intermittently releases the mind and brain of hopelessness in the face of forces beyond our control.

Definition of Black Humor
Black humor is a literary device used in novels and plays to discuss taboo subjects while adding an element of comedy. Cambridge dictionary defines it as a non-serious way of treating or dealing with serious subjects. It is often used to present any serious, gruesome or painful incidents lightly. The writers use it as a tool to explore serious issues, inciting serious thoughts and discomfort in the audience.

13. Attributed to Abe Lincoln (well, what isn't)

When asked why he told jokes during such serious times, he answered, "I'm too old to cry; so I must laugh."

"an untidy mind" That's a keeper.

In a way, it brings balance.

My favorite YT vid this week. It gets hilarious toward the end.

didn't say anything risque but they could lighten up a bit, IMHO. He was FUNNY, folks!
