Who the hell said we were joyless and serious?

Just because we don't babble dadaist crap and call it Discordianism doesn't mean we're always serious.

Hell, I laugh all the time. For example, I'm having a good laugh at the dumbasses in the TSA, right now.

This may be a first. Usually we get accused of not taking things sesriously enough. :spaceman: Or maybe that's just me since I didn't make the list of overly serious Discordians. Which is weird, because usually I am the one being accused of not being Discordian enough, unless it's someone else's turn to be not Discordian enough in which case it's not me being too serious that day, but otherwise it usually is, exceot when it's not. :cheers:

here's my reply,since my name got brought up.

If I'm being serious,it's becuase me and my wife have been battling her cancer for five years,and yesterday we just lost the war..

I live in a devastated city,I'm struggling to keep my house,I have a shitload of bills and I constantly see people on this forum and elsewhere put the city i love down.So excuse me if i don't become Vinski Vee the Clown for someones amusement on demand.

Right now,I am in the middle of funeral arrangements,so my merriment quotion is down at the moment.

If I chose to take myself seriously,that is my Eris given right.If anyone has a problem with that,take it up with Church of Eris Managment.

According to my contract with Eris,I am under absolutely no obligation to conform to anyones idea to what a discordian should be.

Of course Semi is a discordian,but then again I believe that everyone is a discordian at heart,because we all cause discord,chaos,confusion and strife.
Whether semi aknowledges his inherent discordianism is up to him.He could be a Pope of the Church of eris if he wants.Or he can form his own church.

As you can see from a lot of our responses, sometimes life gets serious. I was really quite surprised I didn't get thrown in with those accused of being too serious. I guess you missed all the posts I made in all the abortion threads. Or the threads about spousal abuse. Or a lot of the posts I make in political pagan. There is time for fun and games and there are times when there is no fun to be had. Vincent and Cain have both been through a lot in the last couple of years, not sure if you knew that when you singled those two out. Semi and thegirlwhosenameIcanspelluntilItryto both have their own things to deal with too. We all do, some of us hide it better, intentionally or not. some of us have a little free time in a day to unwind, some of us don't. Some of us are a bit older and have more perspective on the latest pile of shit fate has flung at us. Some of us are too far into the middle of the shit to see daylight.

In other words, sometimes Discordians are just like other people. But don't tell, no one will believe you.

I've been in many a funeral second-line,but this was the first time I actually had to lead one along side with my father-in-law,which suprised me.I never thought he was the type to second-line.I know Mary appreciated the two men in her life putting aside their differences,and celebrating the life,and mourning the loss of someone we love so much,as only we Lousianans can.
The music was so good,I could feel Mary dancing right beside me.

Eris has been really good to me during this.
