In this riff on his 9/11 Classic, James Corbett demonstrates the fundamental mechanics of humor in this 4-minute clip about the US’ recent “adventure” in Syria.
Things are not funny if they’re great and perfect. If things are too perfect, they become weird and therefore, funny. The more horribly messed-up things are, the funnier they are. This hysterically funny video is a perfect example of this.
Of course, there is absolutely nothing whatsoever funny about what is happening on the ground in Syria.
