When I was in the army (which is mandatory here, if you have the wrong sort of genitals), we had a guy who was constantly trying to make jokes and witty remarks. Every now and then, they were really funny! But 95% of the time they were duds, and everybody would just shake their heads and sigh. One of the guys once said to me: “I like you better, because you don’t say much, but when you do it’s funny. Not like this guy!”

To which I replied: “I come up with pretty much the same amount of dumb things to say as the other guy. The difference is just that I filter out 95% and don’t say it.” Which they also considered to be funny. But actually I was just speaking the truth. My brain comes up with ridiculous stuff all the time, and the majority is actually pretty un-funny. The key is just to have enough self control and the discernment to tell when to speak and when to keep it shut. But good lord, I hope I never lose the function of my frontal lobes, because then I’d probably be an insufferable human being.

Oh and sorry for the late upload! I was engrossed in some other work and totally forgot about it …
