Henri Bergson’s Theory of Laughter

I was watching a documentary on Monty Python and John Cleese mentioned that he subscribed to the Henri Bergson theory of laughter. I had never heard of it, but John Cleese’s endorsement was more than enough for me.

I feel like a fool growing to my ripe old age and not having heard of it, but I could fill an encyclopedia with my regrets and mistakes. In fact, that’s what I’m doing on my personal blog. In the meantime, I’m just going to keep learning and trying to get better at all this.

The article explains it all quite well, and I mostly just wanted to add a link to it so that I can refer back. I guess I subscribe to the theory that a blog is an extended form of associative memory, and Google provides the way to recall the thought.
