Comedy...What in the world makes comedy?

Started from the bottom now we're here.

Started from the bottom now were here.


(deformed way of saying yeah.)

The phrase is becoming commonly used in a number of situations these days, and I don't know (well, maybe I have an Idea) what it is, but it's freaking hilarious.

Starting from the fact of the way it is sung, and worded by rapper Drake, the impersonation possibilities are endless. The fact that he brings a black, ghetto inspirational vibe to it automatically ignites this phrases' opportunity to be used by even the highest intellectuals in out nation; and ghetto black jokes can make up some of the funniest jokes, running catch lines and impersonation ever. For some reason, we find the stereotype personality traits given to "a ghetto black man" to be funny, because the personality that we shape them by is just so....unique. The change in voice and attitude. I don't know, there's just something that's makes us laugh about all these things, but why? WHYYYYY?

Aside from just the ongoing ghetto jokes, there's the penis jokes, the vagina jokes, the death jokes, the stupidity jokes, the uncomfortable jokes, and all the other running gags our world has come up with, don't you ever just wonder why it makes you laugh, just why? There must be some joke to life connection there or something. I don't know.

Laughing could really turn into this complicated matter, and it's kind of deliriously magical once you really think about the power of laughter and how we produce it from our very hearts and brains. It's awesome. I feel like questioning what exactly makes us laugh, but to put that into actual words kind of feels like it would ruin the entire secret and magic of laughter in itself.

So why don't we just laugh, forever. And leave it at that. I like laughing. And the cool thing is, laughter can happen anywhere, anyplace, anytime.  So yeah.
