youtube cycleIT STARTS LIKE this: You think of a funny comedian or clip. You search and find it with ease. It is 12:35pm.

You do not stop watching clips of comedians for the next two to three hours. Before you know it, you think you too could be a comedian. And for the next week you think of hilarious jokes for your imaginary act at the Edinburgh Fringe – then it hits you – half of the funny ideas and one liners are actually versions of someones else’s joke that you heard earlier that week, but you can’t be sure! Either you have thought of something truly brilliant or rehashed someone else’s funny business. Cognitive dissonance like a bitch.

Please, type what you think
