We all miss Thunderpuff. Her humor was great but she also inspired you to respond however your could. We need more examples of how to deal with absurdity and horror as humor with a sardonic sense of our own absurdity. The absolute absurdity we live with becomes only horror if we cannot laugh at it and mock its perpetrators.
I think a lot about the old black humor of the Soviet era. It collapsed, finally, when everyone got the joke. We can't even see the joke now, let alone get it. How did that happen?
