Poetry is Easy, Comedy is Hard

Last month, in a post entitled What Makes a Poet, I mentioned one of my MySpace friends, Si, and Si posted a video on his blog that I found too funny to pass up. And I'm not too proud to rip it off, all for the benefit of the Blog Time Passing reader (I know there's only one of you, and you're it!).

So, this is comedy about poetry, by an English comedian named Rik Mayall, and it dates back to the early 1980s, but the humor is pretty up-to-date. And so, without further ado, here's Rik:


So, my conclusion is as follows: Poetry is easy, comedy is hard... or vice versa!
