just to clarify....that thread was all a test.
i'm doing a phd thesis called 'why did the chicken cross the road: to transgress a boundary: modern humor tropes in a digital age'. i'm hoping to understand if a more globalised world means a more globalised sense-of-humor, with particular focus on the reactions to socio-cultural and political events in an effort to understand if the relatively boundary absent internet has given rise to a boundary absent 'laughter-verse'.
your reactions were all very helpful for my study, thanks. i'm gonna go hit the books now.
