To quote Steve Martin, who was absolutely brilliant when he wrote this piece:
Be courteous, kind, and forgiving;
Be gentle and peaceful each day;
Be warm and human and grateful;
And have a good thing to say.
Be thoughtful and trustful and child-like;
Be witty and happy and wise;
Be honest and love all your neighbors;
Be obsequious, purple, and claivoyant.
Be pompous obese and eat cactus,
Be dull and boring and omnipresent.
Criticize things you don't know about,
be oblong and have your knees removed.
Be tasteless rude and offensive,
Live in a swamp and be three dimensional.
Put a live chicken in your under underwear,
Get all excited and go to a yawning festival.
alternative last line "Go into a closet and suck eggs"
Now while this took a serious turn to the silly, it's a very important turn to the silly. The whole song says what life and our roles are, but most of all, have a sense of humor, appreciate the absurd, and enjoy being different from everyone else.
It really is that simple.
