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

Nothing on the fucking planet is deadly serious.  Not a Goddamn thing.

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"
Praise NHGH! For the tribulation of all sentient beings.

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.

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.

Howl is full of shit, he knows JUST how serious it is... that said, whatever happens, happens. If you can't laugh at it you're sad indeed, just don't fucking live in a ghost cave inspecting laughter.

You're making one hell of an assumption, here.
