It's worth a read. Excerpt:
With that in mind, the below clip, which ended comedian Louis C.K.’s HBO special ‘Oh My God,’ while hilariously funny (and worth watching on those merits alone), points to the deep rift we humans suffer on a daily basis: the distance between what we think and how we, at least sometimes, act. Or, at the very least, the conflicting chorus of voices that consistently ring out in our heads, oftentimes at the most inopportune moments—what he refers to as ‘Of Course’ and ‘But Maybe.’
Kudos to Louis C.K. for being able to get laughs by talking about children dying from nut allergies. Humor is marvelous.
We're reminded that, sure, life can be really tough and serious. Nothing to joke about. Of course.
But maybe... everything is a joke. On some level.
Of course... that probably is wrong. But maybe... And so we go.
Here's the video clip.
