We had a conversation about humor the other day, with some of us wondering if the seriousness of life and happenings around us makes the sharing of humor more dangerous, full of pitfalls or opportunities to offend and fail.

I started looking for evidence of humor's robustness in all kinds of places: self-reflection and revelation, letters switched in envelopes and sent to the wrong recipients, someone you love and trust poking gentle fun at an uncomfortable truth, a genuine and unexpected surprise, morbidity brought to light in a dark time. I think there is plenty of room for this list to grow. And what's not to love about seeing your astrological sign turned slightly askew, your Capricorn's solid determination goat-fish tail turned to an all-grabbing eight-limbed-cephalopod?
