The lament and its critics

„Inside every cynical person, there is a disappointed idealist.” – George Carlin

This might be one of mankind’s biggest mysteries: Why do one’s own farts smell like roses while everyone else is leaping for their FFP3 air filter-masks?

Similarly: even though for oneself it smells like roses to speak out those feelings of grief, suffering, resentment, or criticism, hardly anyone enjoys listening to other people’s endless laments.

Except! Except when they are presented in a funny and concise manner. Then we can relate. And have a laugh, together. And maybe some healing.
