Reflections on a Joss Whedon quote about food and laughter.

Humor…and Food…Keep Us Alive


Humor keeps us alive. Humor and food. Don’t forget food. You can go a week without laughing.

Joss Whedon

Oh, Joss…don’t you know that you could likely go for a week or more without food? But who would want to go that long without either?

People on hunger strikes have survived for over a month. Of course, the point still stands. I’ve known people who seemed to be on permanent laughter strikes who have survived a very long time. Sometimes longer than their less-grim counterparts (which does seem counter-intuitive as the prevailing wisdom indicates that “laughter is the best medicine” and all that.)

But who wants to live without either. Even for those of us who don’t identify with the term “foodie,” if we look, we can identify plenty of ways that food has (figuratively) added spice to our life. When good food and laughter meet — even better!

Joss Whedon, (1964-) if you don’t know, is an American screenwriter, producer, maker of comic books, and other things generally appealing to those of us with geekish tendencies. He created such pop-culture hits as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Angel, Agents of Shield, Dollhouse, to name a few off the top of my head.

Cheryl is a former Occupational Therapist and WordPress enthusiast who became a writer in some parallel universe and occasionally, but infrequently, publishes things in this one. She writes two blogs (or is it three) which she won't quit because she knows that blogs, in her case, are like a hydra and if she cuts one off two more will take its place. When she's not doing that, she enjoys hiking, cycling, kayaking (formerly fast, now ebike), messing around with Adobe illustrator, making assorted things, meditating (though she wouldn't call that "like," and reading. She normally doesn't speak about herself in the third person, but she sometimes uses "we" in the royal sense while writing this blog. She lives in Poulsbo, WA with her spouse, her youngest adult daughter, a very old mutt, and a Siamese cat.
