Comedy - Are patents a part of?
Well, the title of this post may be misleading - but it seduced you to open it. Success :-)
Joshua Michael Tillman is an American singer, songwriter, guitarist, drummer and record producer.
His song Pure Comedy is a sarcastic piece of art. Starting with the birth of a human, over religion, to diseases and patented cures, J. Tillman covers it all. The following phrase is symptomatic for the sarcasm of the lyrics:
They build fortunes poisoning their offspring And hand out prizes when someone patents the cure
The full lyrics are for sure a must read. Admittedly, the story told by J. Tillman doesn't lack a certain irony, I'm afraid even reality.
