Black Humor is Funny Too

Black humor is humor … true. A blitzkrieg of the King’s and pidgin English

upon a balkanized globe’s dialogues has been too often nightmarish!

After Greek, English is only the world’s second lingua franca. A rich vocabulary

and easy rhymes are at home in song … psalm … prose … or poetry.

The richest tongue (by word count) owes its extreme wealth to fortuitously heavy

borrowing from other tongues … and the quirks of His timing … uncanny.

And now the Islamic State taunts and haunts Twitter from the relative safety

of a cybernetic perch, high atop … the lofty tree … of precious liberty.

To wit: With more English-speaking Chinese than there are Americans probably,

there are more Chinese than American wits, knowing a twit, from a tweet.

Tweet is commonly understood, but twit? Twits are taunts. To twit is to titter

or taunt. Hmm; curiously, our host … is Twitter … not Tweeter.

Why Twitter and not Tweeter, albeit, an intriguing riddle, isn’t the point. It’s the truth

of black humor that makes black humor … bruise … and humor, too!

Twitter, Tweet, Tweeted and Tweeting; All New Meanings and Re-tweeted, Coined; All to Waste, When … We’re Wasted.

Why Twitter and not Tweeter, albeit, an intriguing riddle, isn’t the point. Rather,
it’s just that more people, than bluebirds, are tweeting … on Twitter.

Twitter filled ready made voids. That it did so with 140 rather than 150 characters;
seemingly genius …. After all … we’ve all gone … atwitter.

Twitter, tweet, tweeted and tweeting; all been given new meaning and re-tweeted,
coined. All to go … to waste … when we are … wasted.

Titters and taunts are tweeted and re-tweeted on Twitter quite mean-spiritedly;
better to be … a poetic writer … good-naturedly.

Tweets and Twits (II)

English is only the world’s second lingua franca. A rich vocabulary and easy

it’s just that more people, than bluebirds, are tweeting … on Twitter.

Titters and taunts are tweeted and re-tweeted on Twitter, sometimes, mean-spiritedly;
better to be a bubbler … if more … good-naturedly.
