What Do YOU Think?

This is probably where my own quote,if it’s funny enough you can do anything (in your writing) – came from.

  1. I agree with this. I learned early on to make a joke in front of bullies so that everyone else laughed and the bullies had no choice but to laugh too.

  2. Sometimes you have to let them down gently into the joke though.
    In my experience if there’s one thing folk like more than a good laugh, it’s having their sensibilities outraged so they can have a wonderful rant.

      1. A classic example of a humorous line which leaves the ‘target’ folks ‘head scratching’:
        Groucho Marx’s explanation from resigning from a prestigious club; (there are various versions but the basic is)
        “I don’t want to belong to any club that will accept me as a member”
        It’s difficult to be angry when the deliver of the joke is being self-deprecating.😃
