I wish I’d known sooner that more than humor was needed to fight a lot of evils, political correctness being one of them, radical Islam being another. That’s because our opponents are humorless and are therefore impervious to ridicule. Our jokes are simply more evidence of our decadence and ignorance, as far as they are concerned.When two of the funniest writers around appear to reject the fun stuff, is it time to turn in your whoppee cushion?
I say, "No way, Josie!"
For while it's true that yucks alone won't stop the evil (viz Chaplain's The Great Dictator, a movie that made fun of Hitler but did not--could not--thwart him), humour can keep you sane and help boost your spirits during the lengthy, seemingly hopeless fight (viz Winston Churchill's "some chicken, some neck" speech).
Works for me, anyway.
