As for your response to my joke: perhaps we've competing ideas of funny. Black people in my family can have larger than average behinds. Which means more fabric and thus bigger pockets. But of course fitting in one million is still unlikely. So to me that's funny. Also, I officially believe your posts are properly representative of your real thoughts/feelings. BTW, the skewed narrative of my joke is also meant to employ the device of absurdity. But surely that's implied. Also, quit criticizing me. My skin is too thin for it.JohnClay wrote: ↑Thu May 05, 2022 10:31 pm@Yesterday
I thought when you said it reminded you of a joke you'd tell the joke.... your version of it doesn't make a lot of sense. I mean who posted the ad about the $1 million? When the ghost says "put the money on the table" is he saying that the guys have to put $1 million on the table? The black guy says he's going to put $1 million in his back pocket - but $1 million wouldn't fit!
Normally the multi-ethnic jokes kind of fit with the stereotypes.
I like to be incredibly silly with my wife and call myself [first name] Silly-Pants [last name]. I have only become more self-aware recently. But sometimes I know I'd be seen in a bad light but don't really care.
I recommend the Uncommon Knowledge depression program and the book "Lost Connections"....I have chronic depression and my only mode of survival is to remain buoyed above the fray by a bias for optimism.
At times I've been extremely detached.I care about you Jon - in a warmly detached kinda way- even though you too are an unusual specimen.
Hey Jon, I appreciate the book suggestion. I intend on actually reading it. Perhaps by tomorrow even.
You keep posting and I'll work on my deficient joke logic or whatever. Deal?
P.S. here's a joke I came up with about lawyers in the 9th grade. "What did the door say to the lawyer? Gotcha!" Because not even doors like lawyers. So much so they rudely slam shut on their hands, feet, suit jacket etc. I'm glad I can sleep tonight knowing you'll be sufficiently unamused and/ or confused by my foolishness. I actually appreciate your criticism unlike that of others who will just pretend like what I've said sometimes makes a lick of sense. Thanks for keeping it real boyo.
