Why We Love the Ridiculous

3 Breasted Woman Tarot Quote Collage

“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”
― Marilyn Monroe

I have always had a love for weird things. Amateur YouTube videos that go viral and the Guinness Book of World Records testify that I’m not alone in my penchant for the weird, ridiculous and bizarre.

Why is this? Why do humans who constantly strive to appear ‘normal’ relish the weird side of life to such a high degree? I believe that seeing or reading about something bizarre or utterly ridiculous can free the mind. It’s temporary chaos that unfetters us from deeply ingrained (boring) neurological pathways and gives us the choice to either judge (God forbid!) or allow for that impulse that prompts us to ask ‘Why not?’ with a cheeky smile.

Without this impulse, there is no life.

That is why I celebrate the bizarre and utterly ridiculous and that is why I think that my Tarot deck would be more complete with the 3 Breasted Woman card. 😉

Love and Blessings,

Lisa

    I love how you used a recent event pic in your blog. I was questioning whether this woman was seeking attention or feeling a part of herself from another place or dimension. Love your thoughts.
