Humor and Satire

Death's Debut

That's when Death decided he wanted to become a stand up comedian. The idea clicked into place with a snap that reverberated with rightness. This laughter thing was invented by humans, completely unforeseen by God. Immortals didn't get it. That's why he had to, because, a good joke was like the thunderclap, a convulsion of life and death coming together in perfect balance, a hybrid.
