Here's to milk out your nose...

Absurdity has a place in the life of the spirit. Dreams seem absurd to the rational waking mind. Yet they help us reconnect to ourselves by erasing the artificially separating lines we draw across our mental landscapes. The best jokes similarly contain spiritual truths -- perhaps the worst ones do as well. Our everyday motives are largely a joke, which is why humor punctures all pomposity and the wise laugh readily.

This wasn't funny and I know that. But I have sat through an entire Unitarian service on humor, and believe me dear reader, you are getting off lightly here.
