A Tennessee homeowner was jailed for failing to mow her lawn. Karen Holloway spent five hours behind bars for violating local lawn-maintenance laws. “The bushes and trees were overgrown but that’s not a criminal offense,” she said, adding that she and her husband were busy at their jobs. “Why would you put me in jail with child molesters and people who have committed serious crimes?”

It was a good week for Randy the guinea pig, who escaped his cage at a British animal park and snuck into a female enclosure, where he impregnated 100 females. “He has now rejoined his male friends,” said the park’s manager. “Clearly he’s got a lot of bragging to do.” See the video

I’ve definitely decided that humor does change as the years go by…50 years to be exact. Two weeks ago I saw for the second time, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty with Danny Kaye playing the part of Walter. I had seen it 50 years ago, and I laughed as heartily this time as I did then. Three days later, I saw the film with Ben Stiller playing Walter Mitty. I didn’t laugh nearly as much, though it was full of lots of great special effects, and Ben Stiller did a good job.
So…I went to the library and checked out the James Thurber short story upon which both films were based. I read it and smiled a lot. I did not laugh.
Humor definitely does change as the years go by.
