    The ''male'' isn't a sad expression of life, although throughout history there have been some terrible men, but same with women. There are many women who aren't good people. I see the inidividual, their character, their treatment of others, not their gender...although, I'm attracted to men, from a relationship perspective. lol I think that as a culture, we tend to judge people too commonly based on gender and that is why there has been a deep line drawn in the sand between men and women, in some cases.

    Regarding who I'm referring to...maybe, I'm being sarcastic?

    Yeah, got to admit, that humour thread was a doozy!

    My favourite used to be Eddie Izzard... before he got a tad pretentious for my tastes.

    Also a big fan of Tim Minchin... best comedic song-writer for us cynical liberal skeptic atheists out there.
    He wrote a song dedicated to the Pope that’s well worth a listen (unless you are easily offended), and a few others about religion (“Thank you God...” and “The Good Book” to name but two).
    Plus best song ever for new parents, called “Lullaby”.
    And then real heart-tuggers like “Drinking white wine in the sun” (which is a Christmas song!)
    Then there’s “Prejudice”, about the word that no one should use, unless you are one.
    If you have 9 minutes to spare, his beat poem “Storm” is what first brought him to my attention.
    And on top of all that he’s a seriously talented pianist!
    Look him up.
    You won’t be disappointed.
    Unless you have a very different sense of humour to me.

    John ("Nay Nay!") Pinette (1964-2014). One of the few comedians that nearly killed me with laughter.

    I can't possibly argue with that, as I never attended Twain's lecture/routines.
    As to Graucho Marx, I recall only fragments of the quiz show spoof, which were crude, and some movies, which were largely slapstick, which not my favourite genre.
