everything human is pathetic. The secret source of humor itself is not joy but sorrow. There is no humor in heaven." - Mark Twain

(Author portrait from the first set of Bent Books bookmarks, 2004)


You don't need to click on this link unless you're in a browsing mood. It's just a random thing that happens to suit my agenda for today. A doctor here uses his memory of reading the Inside Woody Allen comic strip to unlock metaphysics. I think the problem at hand is to do with dieting: "It’s not that they are not dealing with metaphysical problems. The problem is that they are looking for metaphysical solutions. For example, you have heard the phrase, “Laughter is the best medicine.” It isn’t “Humor is the best medicine.” Humor is a metaphysical concept, laughter is an active physical behavior, and that’s where solutions lie."


He must have studied under the great Professor Bean.


In other news (since we are now looking forwrd to going to Italy, as of yesterday):
ROME (Reuters) – Two Swedes expecting the golden beaches of the Italian island of Capri got a shock when tourist officials told them they were 650 km (400 miles) off course in the northern town of Carpi, after mistyping the name in their GPS.
