Thoughts Sparked by September

What is scarier than the destruction of the world?
That the whole thing is a random, arbitrary convulsion. That the universe is morally neutral and unimaginably violent.

Now how do you say that in film?
Well, you have someone say it.

Of Payon

To attempt to write a sober-faced humour-dissection essay is problematic. Firstly one, the essay declares itself to be anything but funny. Secondly,: to explain "what is funny" is an exercise in futility. if a joke is 'lost' on someone, rarely ever does a knowledgeable explanation of the benign transgression achieved by the joke, evoke in the listener the laugh, which was the objective of the joke. So I seek your sympathies upfront before beginning this post that seeks to explain Payon to the uninitiated.
