Laughter is one of life’s pleasures. It’s important to overall good health. I’d back that up, but that involves something called “research” and I am more than lazy.
I love to laugh and I am grateful that I can. I think it is what keeps us sane and it can defuse a nasty situation.
It’s also a pleasant way to spend time. What would you rather do, laugh or fume?
This brings me to my point: Fawlty Towers. We bought the complete set the other day and have watched two of the 12 episodes.
Even though I have seen them several times over I still laugh. I know what’s coming and I smile in anticipation. I laugh as hard or harder now than I did when I first saw them back in the mid-70s.
The shows are familiar enough just hearing “You naughty, naughty moose”(ep. The Germans) or “Brahms Third Racket” (ep. A Touch of Class) sets me off.
So, thank you John Cleese and Connie Booth for writing one of the smartest, funniest, and most enduring shows ever.
