...and now for something completely different

For life is quite absurd
And death's the final word.
You must always face the curtain with a bow.
Forget about your sin.
Give the audience a grin.
Enjoy it. It's your last chance, anyhow.

LOL! Nice one Matt! I think that video is best viewed by reading my previous brooding comment then going directly to this video. =) It makes me look like a real sourpuss!

Obviously you don't want this to be taken to seriously so I'll spare you my usual drama. But I have to say this song has a pretty good grip on what it means to be a happy atheist!

Life's a piece of shit,
When you look at it.
Life's a laugh and death's a joke it's true.
You'll see it's all a show.
Keep 'em laughing as you go.
Just remember that the last laugh is on you.

I've been whistling this song constantly now! Heck, I even woke up and started singing it this morning! What an age we live in where I can watch Monty Python on my blog!

It never fails to bring a smile to my face. Especially the comments towards the end: "Worse things happen at sea... I told 'em. Bernie I said, they'll never make their money back!"

I've made a list of all the clips on You Tube, just in case I can use them to illustrate a point in future. :-)

(One of my 'General Studies' teachers was convinced that any point - be it on architecture or mental health - could be illustrated by a clip from the Simpsons, and was determined to prove it. I've always thought it's the best way to learn.)

I agree. The verse I quoted pretty much sums up my views on life.
