Last night I came to a realization:

Black humor embodies the highest virtue of the human spirit. Standing on the gallows mocking the hangman because he cannot tie his shoes demonstrates a fine disinclination to be defeated. Given that the forces arrayed against a person are many and cannot be overcome, a bleak joke is as formidable a response as can be mounted and one as likely to succeed as any.

In other news, I suspect there is a race condition in the Stanford Natural Language Processing Java library. Also, I'm not a poet.
