It’s so hard to be funny. I can’t even tell jokes right. When I hear something funny, I try to remember it, but then it comes out wrong. There’s nothing better than making people laugh. Laughter really is the best medicine. A good joke can change a sad, dark or tense moment into a tolerable one. Something funny can turn my day around. I want to do that for other people too.

And on those rare occasion where I am funny, I ruin it somehow. I don’t know when to stop. I can’t let a joke linger and spread it’s good will. I have to shovel it deep and spread it like manure. If it’s funny once, it will be funny over and over again right? Wrong. But I never learn. I’m the joke killer. That should be my superpower… joke killing. Don’t let me near something funny, okay? You don’t want humor to fall into the wrong hands. These hands will use and abuse it.
