You're right, Irfan, I did some experiments and tried new things in this article.

There are a few points I made here, one of which is that I saw many people say "dark humor = intelligent" so easily when the truth isn't as simple as the surface. At first, that was what made me want to write this article, and when I discovered the fact that my friend's dark sense of humor was caused by trauma, I was even more curious about it, which then it led me to The Sad Clown paradox. The main point of the story is that intelligence and humor is very complicated, and maybe that's why it's a little hard to understand. And yes, as you said, I agree we're not used to "taking humor seriously"...

Overall, this wasn't my usual topic but I really had "fun" writing this. I appreciate you reading and giving your thoughts! :)
