Life is fun!

Updated on December 2, 2017

Life, fun, and unhappenable notions


Isn't life fun? Yes, it certainly is, from a perspective. But what is fun?

I would define fun to be an acronym for the phrase "Fundamentally Unhappenable Notions." All that is happanable is routine, pedestrian, tedious, wearisome, and monotonous. But the unhappenables, notions though they may be, is what creates an environment of mirth, an ambiance of joy, an atmosphere of fun.

This perspective would, however, lead to a paradox. If life is fun, and fun is a fundamentally unhappenable notion, then by the law of associations, life is an unhappenable notion! So, the associative law should not apply to the equation between life, fun, and unhappenable notions, or life isn't fun, or fun isn't a notion, or . . .

Have fun pondering over it, and the other entries that follow in this hub!


Damn Sad Bush

sketch by Dushyant Ramakrishnan
sketch by Dushyant Ramakrishnan


Bush was damn sad that Saddam had one;

A bushy mustache, while Bush had none;

He groped for pretexts to wipe it off Saddam's face;

And finally said "He has lice in 'em!" and hence a liability to his race;

To prove to the world about his theory of lice,

Bush sent in experts who doubled up as spies;

They pried, they tried, clues they said, were many,

But all that they proved were the lies about the lice - for lice, there really weren't any!

But Bush wouldn't give up and proclaimed,

That it was a sinister dictatorial moustache - expressly groomed and trained,

And bred on a diet of oil and spinach to spawn Super-Lice, a source of contamination -

For each and every civilized man's grooming aspiration;

His dad's and his mustache-less-ness was due to this - he said, and of late,

He strongly suspected that the malady was rising up to their pate;

Convinced about his theory of lies and lice, and before he lost his head

Bush decided that he would rather have Saddam's, regardless of whether truth were alive or dead.


We and us


"We made the world great," claimed President Trump;

"Vi?" asked President Mattarella, incredulously;

"Vy, ya sdelal," said President Putin, smilingly;

"We Nahn," added King Salman, imperiously;

"Wewe si, alikuwa Obama," countered President Kenyatta;

"Oui, Oui," agreed President Macron, solemnly;

"Wei, it was," argued President Xi Jinping, vehemently;

"Veer hum bhi hain, mitron," chimed in Prime Minister Modi;

"If it is all we and us, what is being disputed?" wondered HH Dalai Lama, aloud.



Did you have fun??

      Sure did, thanks. It is interesting how my mind works different then yours. You started with:

      Isn't life fun? Yes, it certainly is, from a perspective.

      and continued with But what is fun?

      I would go with But for whom?

      We have so many options and so little time...
