The point I was making is that comedy is deadly serious.

Nothing on the fucking planet is deadly serious.  Not a Goddamn thing.
Well, that's hardly my fault.  I was just doing what I do, doing my little dance, singing my little song, you know?  And then Hirley0 got on the dance floor and said

SHAKE THAT
First ^  Then V

And I did.  I didn't feel like I had any choice.  Between P-Funk and Hirley0, I became the man reptillian menace I am today.

Bootsy Collins did this to me.

On a semi-related note, there's also a horseshoe effect of shallowness towards appearance. On the one end there's "It doesn;t matter that you don't meet society's idea of beauty, what's important is what's on the inside" and on the other end you have "It doesn;t matter that you don't meet society's idea of beauty, what's important is you've got a part that I want to put it inside"

It is an unfortunate fact that every man who seeks to disseminate knowledge must contend not only against ignorance itself, but against false instruction as well. No sooner do we deem ourselves free from a particularly gross superstition, than we are confronted by some enemy to learning who would plunge us back into the darkness -H.P.Lovecraft

He who fights with monsters must take care lest he thereby become a monster -Nietzsche

Semi-related to what?
“Soon all of us will have special names” — Professor Brian O’Blivion

"Now's not the time to get silly, so wear your big boots and jump on the garbage clowns." — Bob Dylan?

"Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself, I am large, I contain multitudes" — Walt Whitman

to silliness looping back around into the profound. It's along the same lines. I suppose "semi-related" is a bit strong a term, I probably should have went with "tangential"

But anyway there's arguably a general horseshoe effect between the base and the refined.
