The Randomly Humorous

My chosen topic is nothing if not heavy so once in a while a little humor is in order.  Or at least an odd slant.  Here are a few escape hatches.

You mean him, dear?

But the mother of all friendships is the one that’s forged in the furnace of life.  I have an old friend like this, a woman with whom I share a level of bonding similar to that between comrades on the battlefield.  We’ve been through a lot together.

A lot.

Planking: The Organization of Random Humor

Planking, otherwise known as “The lying down game”, has evidently been around for a while but I just learned about it.  It’s totally absurd (a guaranteed hit with me) and involves lying down on one’s face in random, incongruous, often public places

Squirrels and Spring: The War Begins Anew
