The Immutable Laws of Comedy

I. If something bad happens to me, that’s tragedy. But if it happens to you, that’s comedy.

II. Tragedy plus time equals comedy.

III. Everything is really just a dick joke.

IV. Getting hit in the balls is always funny to someone.

V. Words with the ‘K’ sound are funny.

DISCUSSION

These laws have been gathered from the greatest comedic minds of the past three millenia, except for Aristotle. He thought he was funny, but really wasn’t (which, by the way, is a fine example of tragedy).

Law V. is a little shaky, and may be revised at some point. Well, it’s immutable, so it can’t be revised; so we may just cut the little bugger (just as long as we don’t cut my little bugger).
