" a better tomorrow...tomorrow..."

“Do you know what I like about comedy? You can’t laugh and be afraid at the same time—of anything. If you're laughing, I defy you to be afraid.” ― Stephen Colbert

     The high-def 3-D glasses included in Stephen Colbert's bestseller, America Again: Re-Becoming the Greatness We Never Weren't will increase the "depthiness" of your reading pleasure. By sharing this information I have already violated the Terms and Conditions Agreement of his book to which you have two options YES or OK. There is so much brilliant satire in the book you have to share. Stephen Colbert and The Colbert Report allows me to digest those gristly chunks of complex social and political issues otherwise impossible to swallow. Jon Stewart is one of the most thoughtful, intelligent writers and politcal satirists of our time and the Daily Show encourages an audience to contemplate the most serious of subjects while we giggle and guffaw. Aside from family, friends and aquaintances( my brother photoshopped this pic ) the four fearless New Yorkers who constantly challenge each other on Impratical Jokers arouses my pure sense of the absurd with their hilariously cheeky dares because it's true; you can't laugh and be fearful. There are thousands of different ways to explore humor.

      Observing and understanding the human predicament connects us all. Life is tragedy and divine comedy. People who are able to laugh at themselves have a developed sense of humility. Never trust people who are disingenious or lack a sense of humor. We are only human. We all have a capacity to increase happiness in ourselves and others. Possessing an excess of self-importance and seriousness builds up frustration, pessimism and negativity. We need to laugh. As the great American writer Kurt Vonnegut once observed, people either laugh or cry when they are frustrated and exhausted. Humor is a release. Laughter is the best medicine when generously administered with a deliciously sugarcoated spoonful of sarcasm. Stephen has also included a few shining examples of truthiness to validate your educational history on "the winning resume". Eliminate your competition in any job market by use of the following under, EDUCATION: Havard University, Yale Campus 1999 Princeton, N.J... B.A.- in Dartmouth Studies, graduated Summa Cum Stanford. Mr. Colbert has also written all of his readers A Letter of Recommendation because as he states " his readers now know him in the form of a book". When it comes down to nailing the perfect job or discovering what makes us laugh the old adage still rings true, its not what you know it's who you know.
