The Remarkable Fool's Three Answers
A reply to yesterday
Who am I?
I’m Jim. I’m an incomplete, flawed, flailing, hurt human who is obsessed with jokes and how humour ‘works’. In public, I joke almost non stop. It’s neither a compulsion nor deflection - my consistent joking. It does speak to why I’m here. I’m at times neurotic and paranoid. I’m like a non perverted Woody Allen with a Nova Scotian accent and a knack for comparing myself with some pretty deplorable people
Why am I here?
I’m here to be super human. Not like a super hero. But really human. Like super. Insofar as I’m here to embrace, expose and explode as many of my flaws as I can so that I can laugh at myself. I’m here to encourage you to find liberty by doing the same.
What do I want?
It’s late in the day.
I want to go home and eat a hamburger.
