Gallows Humour and Ironic Humour

Well it’s good to be back after my varsity Old Boys reunion in the Far North this weekend. We only had one foreigner there – courtesy of him having flown in from Canada to make the meet – diseased bastard!!

Internet and cellphone comms were non-existent so we were all blissfully unaware of how the COVID-19 crisis was developing. Probably the first time any of us have been disconnected from the world in months or years.

So it’s good to see different types of humor emerging from this situation, and here are just two.

First up is gallows humour, courtesy of a Wisconsin bar:

Then there’s ironic humour, as one of Hollywoods most insane NeverTrumpers demands the following

I love the irony here. Rob Reiner has spent the last four years calling Trump a dangerous fascist who wants to take away many of the freedoms of Americans. Now that’s exactly what he wants Trump to do.
I think writers of the old sitcom All In The Family perhaps knew more than they were aware of when they gave Reiner’s character the label of, “Meathead“.
There’s also what I call Schadenfreudean humour, like this.

Trump Job Approval:
Approve 53%
Disapprove 47%

His polls have risen during this crisis. Looks like the MSM-Democrat scream fest has failed.
I would remind readers that Jacinda Adern will almost certainly receive the same benefit here in New Zealand.

How About That. Eh?

Last week Adolf attended what is called the ‘graduation parade’ for his grandson’s Air Force Cadets unit.  The affair was very well done with the standard of parade ground skill well above expectations.

Apart from said grandson receiving an award for marksmanship (takes after his gf who was a uni rifle team member) there was one award which caught my attention.  A fifteen year old unit member was presented with his private pilot’s licence for which he had studied assiduously. 

Now get this!  He’s too young to be allowed to drive a car in this crazy country.

Isn’t that a bit like forbidding a brain surgeon from applying band aids to skin lacerations?

Comment of the Day

Under Herr Hitler, the Germans invaded other countries and made the people of other countries miserable. Under his daughter, Frau Merkel, the Germans invade their own country and make their own people miserable. It seems like German rulers love invasions so much that if they can’t invade other countries, they invade their own country.”

Whence came this comment?

Who cares?
