At an unspecified point in my life, I may or may not have said, "It's only funny when you fall down," or something to that effect.
I would like to point out at this time that although it is an alleged statement, it is nevertheless true.
I would like to further assert that while the above alleged statement may or may not be slightly sadistic in nature, it also illustrates my hidden philosophical depths, as illustrated below:
"It is not funny that anything else should fall down; only that a man should fall down. Why do we laugh? Because it is a gravely religious matter: it is the Fall of Man. Only man can be absurd: for only man can be dignified." -G. K. Chesterton
Just think about it.
