Comedy of Errors

If you are going to try to take over the world, never start with Europe. Start with Australia and then take over Asia. Once you those and your borders heavily defended, you should do fine. I've been playing a lot of Risk.

I heard an interview today with a guy that interviewed over 40 comedians. Apparently the majority of comedy writers suffer from obsessive compulsive disorder and most, if not all, suffer from some sort of depression (on a fairly regular basis). This leads me to think that comedy is an inherent quality that is ingrained within oneself, like a mild personality disorder or something like that. It could also be biological, for instance some disorders are onset by enlarged glands.

Just finished Sherman Alexie's novel The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian. It was an easy read and one of the more solid novels that I've read in a while.

Speak easy,
