humor? or sarcasm?
I beeeleeeve what we have here is a failure to co-mun-A-cate.
We are ape-bags of chemicals accurate but not very sexy.
I once heard a joke: You know what a women is? It is the life support system for the vagina.
Funny? Well it depends on where you are and in who's company it's told.
I think a great many people are a mix between :
Me thinks thou dost protest to much...
and
What ever gets you through the night.
I fall into both camps quite regularly. I like to stave off my existential angst and fear and loathing smothered in nihilism by telling myself all manner of romantic artistic things. I can delude myself rather well. That is why I find the character Sheldon on BBT so funny. He doesn't delude himself with romantic notions. He is the face of science itself.
