No subject is ever too serious for humour. I think many people have a
basic misunderstanding: There's a difference between being serious and
We could be talking about things that are extremely serious -- our
marriages, the education of our children, politics, even the meaning of
life -- and laughing quite a lot and that wouldn't make what we were
talking about one bit less serious.
But solemnity, on the other hand; I don't know what it's for.
Solemnity serves pomposity, self-importance, and egotism. And the
pompous and the self-important always know at some level that their
egotism is going to be punctured by humour. That's why they always see
humour as negative, as a threat to them personally. And so they
dishonestly criticize it as frivolous and light-minded.
