Humor me

No, seriously. I was considering this morning the importance of humor not only in daily life but also in music. Sometimes the best feeling is to let it all out with a hearty laugh and when that laugh lines up with music whether intentionally funny or not it can be the best feeling in the world. The example below is clearly intentional and of course genius.

A week into this challenge and I’m staring to feel a little better already.
