Black as Knight

This cartoon will probably piss off some PC people. My apologies up front. The point of course is that at some time or other each of us think our situation in life is horrible (and it may well be) but in those moments we forget there’s always someone out there that’s got it worse — sometimes way worse. The thing that amazes me is that there are those folks who’ve been dealt a real crap hand and yet they thrive!

I’m reminded of the scene from the movie, “Monty Python And The Holy Grail” (sorry, you youngsters will just have to google it) wherein our protagonist is engaged in a sword fight with a knight in black garb. At one point the black knight has been hacked down to just a torso and head and yet he’s still full of fight. It’s hilarious, tragic and inspiring all at once. That’s where I was coming from with today’s post. There are many people on this rock who’ve mastered the art of making lemonade out of lemons.

I tip my hat to them.

BTW: If you need some cheering up you might just google: monty python look on the bright side of life
