Samuel Beckett would say that life is a tragicomedy. So would Larry David too, probably. And a bunch of other famous people who are all copying off each other. The point being: There are some times you just have to lighten up and stop yelling about the oil spill. But other times you have to get serious and not talk about your skin rash on Twitter. Life is a weird balancing act like that. More »
