A lot of comedy - in particular stand up comedy, involves quite a bit of 
negative thinking. Words and thoughts that we normally would fend off 
are "let loose" in the name of laughter and free speech. We are 
essentially taken to very dark corners of my mind by the comedian with 
the comfort that we are not responsible for it. However, karma will kick 
in... karmic mental formations...
