No offense

Can anything be funny, or are some things off limits?

There are a few things off-limits. I don’t think a tragedy is funny or make fun in an offensive way of a handicapped person is funny or be offensive to the most sacred believes of some group of people is funny, for instance.

I’m not the best person to talk about what is and what is not funny, because although I love laughing like everybody does, I’m not good at jokes. Lately I have problems to look on the bright side of life.

I admire people who can make fun of things, be at easy, have good spirits and spread joy around. I think that a key to make people laugh out of joy is love. Because of that, deep offenses are out of the picture. This said, I have to confess I love political satire or political humor when is intelligent. I know, there is absolutely not love for politicians in that. They are public personalities and have to deal with that kind of jokes. It comes with the job.

  1. Humor doesn’t need to be cruel. Just like it doesn’t need to be overtly dirty. The true comedy artists can make us laugh at real life things. Like Bill Cosby. He had a gift. Or the comedians who worked back when you had to be careful of what you said. Of course there is still a place for George Carlin. You can be a little nasty if you are making us think.
