Now it needs the white text that makes it funny.
It is true that liberty is precious; so precious that it must be carefully rationed.

For a small fee, I can add the white text for you.
I am losing my mind to mandess.

The boy looks genuinely heartbroken. No way can that be made funny...
unless western civilization is deeper in decline than even I had realized.

Shouldn't have eaten that entire cheese tray.
You see...a pimp's love is very different from that of a square.
Dating a stripper is like eating a noisy bag of chips in church. Everyone looks at you in disgust, but deep down they want some too.

Not so much his mind but his emotions.
He might appear to be suffering a great loss.

He just found out that one of his parents just died - maybe more the Mom.
He might have just found out that he's gravely ill and is dying.
He might have just been told by his wife that she's leaving.
He might have just been told that his unborn child died.

He has a suit on. He might have just been fired from a job which he really needs to support his wife and kids.
He feels terrible - powerlessness. It just happened so he's not thinking straight at all. He's just an emotional mess.

Look at his face. What human being would engage himself in such a way that it could be funny?
If we laugh at tragedy or another's pain, it's because we're afraid of our own emotions and the realization that life can indeed change on a dime. In no time at all, WE can be him. No one can be 100% secure about anything. The man is having a terrible existential moment.
But I may be wrong.
“How can a bird that is born for joy
Sit in a cage and sing?”
― William Blake


“Little Fly
Thy summers play,
My thoughtless hand
Has brush'd away.

Am not I
A fly like thee?
Or art not thou
A man like me?

For I dance
And drink & sing:
Till some blind hand
Shall brush my wing.

If thought is life
And strength & breath:
And the want
Of thought is death;

Then am I
A happy fly,
If I live,
Or if I die”
― William Blake, Songs of Innocence and of Experience


“No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings.”
― William Blake

Or he was in an existential mode of total dis pair, when he realized, running from his unlocked car to the nearest W.C., that he isn't going to make it, and reaching it, was too late, and sat down, to think over, what the hell to do next.


The white text should say, "ohh,but, if I'd been more like ,reasonable, this may not have been so
redundant."

In answer to your prayer
sincere, the centre of
your circle here,
i stand ; and , without
taking thought,-
i know nothing. But i can

Full well your need-as
you be men
This: Re-Creation. With a
bow,
Then, your obedient

servant now.
One gift is all i find in me,
And that is faithful
memory

"i told you men couldn't give birth, aaah"
The truth is naked,
Once it is written it is lost.
Genius is the result of the entire product of man.
The cosmic insignificance of humanity, shows the cosmic insignificance of a universe without humanity.
