Thema: Ironies of Laughter

Douglas Jones ponders funnies.

" We also have to ask why we would consider superiority itself to be funny. Why would delighting in power over something make us laugh? That sounds so tediously secular. Modern secularism is obsessed with power, power relations, fear of power, getting-in power, uncovering power, market power, sleeping with power, power lunches, power moves, empowering power, power tools, and power-ade. They have only this one key on their piano. Secularists force everything into power categories, oblivious to how tiresome that is. "

A Hunting Party - Douglas Wilson

"He looked down and was surprised to see that he had drawn his sword. What should he do now? His guide had abandoned him. Shouldn’t he follow Beow? Wasn’t he supposed to stay on the path, always west ? How was he supposed to find the dragon by himself?’"

Pictura: A Story, not too Long
Stalingrad - Nathan Wilson

" I knew a girl once whose mother had sent her brother outside to eat ants. She had apparently grown weary of his softness. He had not been allowed back inside until he had filled a quota of black driveway ants, a breed I have not tried. She seemed to think that it worked. The mother that is. The girl I once knew wasn’t so sure."
