Today’s Quote

th-1“Common sense and a sense of humor are the same thing, moving at different speeds. A sense of humor is just common sense, dancing. Those who lack humor are without judgement and should be trusted with nothing.”

Clive James, Cultural Amnesia: Necessary Memories from History and the Arts

    Humor is “just common sense, dancing”: I agree, since I like both humor and dancing. Maybe the relationship between humor and common sense explains why so much humor these days involves satire and sarcasm (e.g., “duh”).
