How About A Humor Category On HP?
Work is important. It pays the bills. Humor greases the skids, and the pushes and pulls of life become easier.
Humor is what makes cartoons, comedy, limericks, and even satire click. It makes cloudy days sunny.
Why is it that of all the categories offered for pigeon holing our contributions here on HubPages, we don't yet have one encompassing humorous contributions?
There is a saying that goes "Life is too much with us, soon and late." Let's have a "Humor" category soon, rather than late.
Most limericks have a certain humor to them, and some of those are priceless.
I can find them by searching for "Limericks." But not all humor has its own name as limericks do. If you search for "Satire" or "Humor" you will find lots of articles listed because the writers have used those words in their titles, but the categories they selected for their Hubs do not always indicate their real category: Humor.
For those of us who can take a joke, even on ourselves, any time of the day, being able to pull up one category. for all the good chuckles, just might make our day a little better, and a little lighter and brighter.
For the writers of such deathless prose, it can provide a selected category which tells what the writer is really up to.
How about it, Team Hub Pages?
There are two nearly identical search topics, and one could just as easily be changed to accomodate "Humor." Both describe writing or discussing "Childrens Books." the only difference being toddlers and infants as a subcategory of children.
Here is what the latter looks like: Books, Literature, and Writing → Books & Novels → Children's Books → Books for Infants & Toddlers .
Here is what the other search topic looks like: Books, Literature, and Writing → Books & Novels → Children's Books (with additional subcategories including the same "Books for Infants & Toddlers" as well as Preschoolers,----- etc.
Let's just change the duplicate one to "Books, Literature, and Writing - Humor" with its own subcategories for Limericks, Satire, ........etc.
An original example:
A rather inactive, sedentary chap (as attested to by his shape) told me excitedly the other day that he "felt so much better" now that he was following his doctor's advice that "two hours a day at the gym" would make him healthier, and for the last two week's he has gone there every day for his two hours afternoon nap.
Love AND laughter make the world a better place.
