Hilarity in the Middle East

So Coop has been developing a sense of humour. Some might even call it a pronounced sense of humour. Occaisionally, he will just command, “Let’s all laugh! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!” Usually, we can’t help but to comply.

Lately though, it’s become more contextual. Now when he wants everyone to laugh, he just picks a word at random from whatever conversation is at hand, laughs as hard as possible, and chases it all with a “That’s funny” at the end.

So, today, here’s what I heard from the back seat of the car while driving with the radio on. The program was a panel of pundits talking about the Gaza Strip and the West Bank:

“Palastinians! HAHAHAHAHAhahaha! That’s funny.”

“Situation! HAHAHAHAHAhahaha! That’s funny.”

“Colonization! HAHAHAHAHAhahaha! That’s funny.”

So that makes at least one person who sees the goings-on in that part of the world downright hilarious. Oddly comforting, that.
