Since Moy and Giella are pointing out the obvious humor of 4,000 people fighting for room on a lifeboat, and since they've employed a comedy technique known as reincorporation, I'd like to do a little reincorporating myself by sharing what I found to be the funniest quote from the Vanity Fair article on the sinking of the Costa Concordia:
"That night, on the far side of the island, a 49-year-old hotel manager, Mario Pellegrini, was pointing a remote control at his television, trying in vain to find something to watch... The day before, he and a pal had gone fishing, and when the motor on their boat died, they ended up spending the night at sea. “The sea is not for me,” he sighed to his friend afterward."
For those who may be new to Mary Worth, you might miss why this quote is so funny. Instead of explaining it, I'll just remind everyone to always read your free secret message. It's free, so what do you have to lose? You can find your free secret message by holding your cursor over each image.
