My chum Tom just emailed me with a link to an interesting piece on BuzzFeed.com. The posting in question is called 19 People Who Are Having a Worse Day Than You.
I know we shouldn’t laugh at other people's misfortunes, but what can I say? The reason the "man slipping on a banana" was used so often in the old black-and-white films is that … it's funny.
My favorite is #5 ("Discovering you have superpowers at the worst possible moment"), although #11 ("Anyone who is best friends with a juggler") has a certain je ne sais quoi.
But wait, #17 ("Anyone trying to be Captain America") is a hoot. In fact they are all pretty amazing and funny, except for #19 which makes me sad.
