Hey Aishat,

Good to have you here. There was a film years ago with the title Sex is Comedy or something like that. I think there is something humans find a bit funny about the process. Maybe because something that biologically serious is ripe for mockery.

The guys who use that wandering eye trope can be blamed for not being innovative, but we also have to ask ourselves one question: Why are we laughing so much? And maybe another question is: How is that the banality of the wandering eye still provokes hilarity?

I have been thinking about one of the guys you mentioned. When I achieve some clarity I’ll write about his work.

Thanks for reading!
