Pain, genocide, war, sexism, racism. But I've gotta remember there's good things about it too. Like the fact that none of that's happening to me! Score! Still, though, it's hard not to be sad about it. How do y'all do it? I've been telling you guys terribly sad things this whole song; you haven't been sad at all. You've been--you've been happy--no, you've been laughing. That's it, laughter, it's the key to everything. It's the way to solve all the sadness in the world! I mean not for the people that are actually sad, but the people like us that've gotta fucking deal with them all the time. Being a comedian isn't being an insensitive prick capitalizing on the most animalistic impulses of the public; it's being a hero. The world isn't sad. The world's funny! I'm a sociopath!
