Jokes and amusement

What I wrote about yesterday is highly serious. It is a true Bond. And in addition, Navalny looks a little like James Bond. I am following the news and I haven’t heard anything about him today. Even though the WWII took place and ended decades ago, I think that the feelings still are present.

When the Corona virus outbreak started elderly people who have survived WWII started to remember those times. “Who can I trust?”. “This is dangerous”. “I need to defend myself and prepare for the worst”. The shelves in the grocery stores got empty. The streets got totally empty. However, now we have adjusted some. The situation is more stable.

To cope with serious settings like this I need to smile. Charlie Chaplin did what he could during the WWII. Humor is something very individual and personal. What I consider fun may be completely the opposite for another person. It is a delicate balance.

Now when I follow Navalny, I thought of big power nations such as Germany 🇩🇪, Russia 🇷🇺 and the UK 🇬🇧. John Cleese in Fawlty towers illustrates our world history in a more or less sensitive way – “You have absolutely no sense of humor”.
