"It’s not difficult to make politics funnier." – John Cleese, British comedian
In an interview, this great comedian was asked how one would make politics funny. His answer is hilarious and one fraught with great insight and wisdom. It need not be serious and hazardous, or taken seriously because that’s the nature of things given the vagaries of human nature. And human nature can be hilarious.
Laughter is the language of the soul, we are reminded. As we witness political gaffes, we must rejuvenate ourselves. Laughter is also the cheapest and best form of therapy as it represents the shortest distance between two people. Laugh, and the world laughs with you even at the expense of funnier politics.
