Humor is the Fourth Dimension

Humor is the fourth dimension of this world, without it futile and unlivable . . .

A secret conquered at the cost of long suffering, humor is the answer to superior minds to this world in which they feel themselves alien. More than a natural secretion, as it has too often been regarded, humor manifests, on the contrary, the heroic attitude of those who are unwilling to compromise.

— Maurice Nadeau, The History of Surrealism

Blues For a New Age

As Homo sapiens continues its evolutionary transition to perception of an ever broader range of the light spectrum

New one-syllable words for the color blue:

prist
sweem
bloof

New two-syllable words for the color blue:

prinkle
lushie

And going forward, acceptable general substitutions for the word blue shall include “misunderstood” and/or “snowy owl.”
