Journal entry 199--Humor

What kinds of humor do you enjoy the most?

I have always liked a dry, witty humor. My husband has that which is one of the reasons I married him. I grew up watching British comedies which has a very dry sense of humor and I guess I became used to that. I love parody and satire where someone takes a real social problem and mocks it. An example of this is the Mel Brooks movie, "Blazing Saddles." That movie parodied racism and basically made fun of the people who are racist. Of course that movie couldn't be made now a days because people have become too politically correct and miss that fact that that movie is mocking what is wrong. It's still a hilarious movie.
