I was bothered to call this article a madhouse. There it would. But I have thought about it because by nature I am optimistic and I like to see things from another point of view, different from other people. I also like jokes that show that everything, even the most tragic events, can be considered funny. Furthermore, it is much better to laugh than cry, because it saves us from bad moods, the ones that could lead us into depression. So, I’m in front of this technological medium and let’s see if I can compose something humorous. If it goes well, I will write to those of the humorous TV shows, and maybe they will call me for some broadcast, or to write the gags for other protagonists. I got off to a good start and in 5 minutes I made the introduction which I am quite happy with. I hope that you too share my enthusiasm. Let’s work to justify the title.
So, all my time I spend at home. I’ll celebrate in March the anniversary, the first one, of my lithe work. I am a broad-minded guy and I feel like a citizen of the world, but I don’t like the exaggerated use of foreign words in our everyday language. Translating the English term would be smart work. I like it! I don’t have to waste my time traveling to work and home afterwards. An extra two hours a day is not bad at all. Many persons say it is the greatest wealth for all of us, the free time. I’m fine at home and work well. I have the ability to manage my actions in complete freedom, to do my homework when I want. The problem becomes physical activity. It’s not that in ordinary times I do much, but at least I did the walk to reach public transport. Now I take empty walks around the house, or a little further away and I dedicate 15 minutes a day to yoga exercises. Yesterday I came back from the walk and I got the idea not to take the elevator. I went up 21 floors with the stairs. It took me 7 minutes, very slowly, and I survived. The rest of the time I spend looking the television. In the evening some movies can be found, but during the day I mostly watch the news on the various channels; so I also compare who shoots the biggest one.
This month, the Americans have been the center of global attention. They attacked the seat of their parliament. Everyone is scandalized, but this action seems fair to me. There are premises that justify the action. The photo of the guy disguised as a bison caused a lot of comments, not very positive. I do not understand why. Everyone knows that Americans have brought these beautiful animals to near extinction. Now these, symbolically, showed up in parliament to protest. They speak of an attack on democracy, not realizing that they do everything in reverse with animals: they are in fact all racists. Why democracy, why not animalcracy? They too, the animals, are living souls and have the same rights to this world, in this nature, as we do. If they protest, they also get terrorists. Terrorists are those who kill innocent people, who have nothing to do with the cause they present. The United States Congress is certainly not innocent and can be considered a legitimate destination for protests against bisonticide.
We all visited a circus at least once in our life. Along with the show, there is also a visit to animals and strange creatures: the giant man, the dwarf man of only 90 cm and the inevitable mustachioed woman. So the new president of the United States, Joe Biden has decided not to let Trump steal the whole scene. These days he has introduced us the members of his government. In the vice-presidency we find the first woman already from the beginning of the election campaign, and she is also yellow-black, although the latter is prevalent. The new defense minister, for the first time an African American, of undoubted color. Among the ministers, always for the first time, one who publicly declares himself homosexual. I ask myself: do these characteristics have something to do with their abilities?
There is a friend of mine who claims that America and Europe have been in decline since the nineteenth century, and that the circus they do is not surprising. According to him, the only respectable civilization on this planet is the Asian one. I don’t know if this is true. I saw the news from Hong Kong, where they arrested 50 opponents. On a newscast they also said why; we do not normally provide this information. Ahead of the elections, the guys organized the primaries, to see which of their candidates would have the most votes. The Chinese government has assessed this action as subversive and dangerous for the security of the Chinese state. I thought about it for a moment, but I’m not getting there. In this general circus nothing is missing: there are clowns, lots of them, animals, acrobats, strange creatures and even the smell of hay accompanied by that of the feces that various protagonists leave behind. Happy New Year everyone and I hope that this Covid nightmare will disappear as soon as possible, forever.
