I can't remember my first taste of dark humor, but each time feels like I'm experiencing it for the first time. Maybe. I used to read Jhonen Vasquez's comics and those were great. Dead Like Me was one of my favourite shows, I can't remember much else but I'm sure there are plenty behind me somewhere. I like to think they broadened my acceptance of humor, if that makes sense. Maybe my acceptance of life, in the form of humor. Like getting dumped over MSN and being able to laugh about it. Or recognising something twisted inside yourself and feeling only amusement at the hilarious irony.
Sometimes I find myself sitting back, laughing my arse off at the joke that is this reality. And I think we all know the punchline.
