How To Cheer Yourself

It worked for me, at least, and I really needed it. It took a well-known blog with rather literary regulars, Making Light, for example, to start a series of "[x] walks into a bar" jokes on an open thread. There are almost a thousand such jokes there. What began as a really depressing evening has turned into an endless stream of merriment... even after only a hundred or so of the jokes. Of course, Kurt Vonnegut's legendary universal drink, gin and tonic, double strength, didn't hurt either, nor did Paul Simon's Graceland CD... but that thread had more effect than even the two-shot gin and tonic. Give it a try. (The thread, I mean; the thread...)

Note: keep a ROT13 decrypter handy. For the few of you who don't know what that is, search the web.
