Inappropriate Behaviours

There’s a fine line between what makes people laugh and what is so bad you’ll burn for all eternity in Dante’s seven levels of hell. Humour means constantly being on the edge of what is right or ‘normal’ and the edge can be fallen over and you can find yourself with a black eye and broken leg, because over that edge was a ravine. Ouch. You should have stayed away. You should have kept your mouth shut, agreed with everyone and respected the person in charge. For an average person this is quite easy to do, but for someone constantly hyper aware of their social status and a weakness for the devil drink is it nigh impossible. You could either end up gaining the respect of the group for saying a witty off-the-cuff remark, but, if said with the wrong intonation or with the wrong choice of words, you’re fucked. You’ve offended everyone, they all think you’re mean and everybody goes home early, abandoning said devil drink. Oops. So how to know when you’re a comedy genius or just an asshole looking for attention? You can’t know, it’s just a matter of trial and error. People are unpredictable, hit someone in a sore spot with your joke, you’ve just lost a friend for life. Hit someone in the funny spot you’ve just made one. And laughs are like drugs, they start becoming addictive. Once you get some, it’s really really hard to stop. All you start wanting is that pearly white (or yellow) shine of a person’s smile, sarcastic grin or the best moment; a huge belly laugh. So is it worth the risk? The risk of saying the wrong thing and getting into trouble, just for the sake of a few golden seconds of someone else’s laughter? Absolutely. Yes.
