JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: ON MISSING THE JOKES OF A VERY STRANGE ENTERTAINER

John Chuckman

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE GUARDIAN

“Björk: ‘People miss the jokes. A lot of it is me taking the piss out of myself’”

Well, if people miss the jokes, it should tell you something.

Jokes, as I understand them, are unexpectedly concise statements of shared truths.

The truths do not have to be scientific truths, but observations or ways of looking at things accepted as practical for getting by in day-to-day life.

If no one recognizes your truths by laughing, it suggests you live in a reality shared by few others.
