American Humor is an old and avidly read - and seen on the screen - tool to reduce depression and high blood pressure. Mark Twain's Colonel Beriah Sellers, two lovable frauds in Huckleberry Finn, the King and the Duke, James Thurber's 'a little man', Clarence Day Sr. a stockbrocker-cum-father of Clarence Day Jr. in printed literature were pen-driven ticklers. Charley Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy or Sister Mary Claernce of The Sister Act films, Chief Inspector Clauseau in the Pink Panther series in cinema were camera captured de-depressers.
Hyman Kaplan is one such character of American Literature created by Leo C. Rosten.(lee Leonard Q. Ross) He is a middle-aged Jewish immigrant who is studying English at the beginner’s level. The story 'Dip Tinking by H*Y*M*A*N* K*A*P*L*A*N' is a platter of his dreams and thoughts with a tang of black humor - live humor of those who are struggling to learn how to create their own identity, a decent livelihood, a presence in a society where competition is a way of life.
So, you would see some of my 'dip tinking' on this blog. Think about it! Enjoy it!
