I've been able to get the YouTube link feature to work some days. But it is not this day.

Here's a funny bit of comedy:

I adore Hannah Gadsby! :love: Her show Douglas (from which this clip is taken) is currently on Netflix. She had a show before that called Nannette, which was amazing as well, and helps set the stage for part of this show's jokes.


Here's another clip of her

The dumbest thing I've ever bought
was a 2020 planner.

"Does anyone ever think about Denethor, the guy driven to madness by staying up late into the night alone in the dark staring at a flickering device he believed revealed unvarnished truth about the outside word, but which in fact showed mostly manipulated media created by a hostile power committed to portraying nothing but bad news framed in the worst possible way in order to sap hope, courage, and the will to go on? Seems like he's someone we should think about." - Dave_LF

I am picky about comedy/humor, but this is the kind of stuff I like. :)

Definitely one of the seminal moments in modern music.

ETA: (Or rather, one of the seminal ten minutes in modern music.)

I don't understand the poem- but I think his wife was dead and he was taking flowers to her grave maybe? I had to think about the end a bit before I realized that must be it.

That's what I was guessing, but I didn't understand the...raisins/dates? whatever they were on the seat of the car. I don't think I know enough about the custom to fully understand, but it was lovely.

Ah.. looking at the comments I saw this:
Iranian people every Thursday afternoon go to the cemetery to visit their love ones’s grave yard . So touching .

yes, and the sweets they bring are to pass out to others visiting their loved ones and the ones who attend to the cemetery.
That's probably why the man has cake for the young boy 'like last week'. Perhaps the boy stands at the intersection near the cemetery because he knows people will be bringing food to be shared.
