Disturbing search term of the week: Heroin Humor

Someone came to this website seeking heroin humor — ugh

I check Google Analytics each week to see why people come to this website, what they are reading and how much time they spend reading it. Sometimes the keyword search results are disturbing. Like last week. Someone came to The Humor Columnist after searching for the term “heroin humor.” Heroin is, of course, inherently hilarious. For my money, heroin is the funniest drug because people are so willing to lose their money and their lives for a narcotic that lets you take a really pleasant nap. At least with other drugs, you become more productive or more interesting. Not heroin. You just nod off like grandpa watching bowling. On the plus side, you can put heroin in a burrito, which is how I think this person found my site.

    Hi, I’m an addictions treatment specialist and trying to figure out why my heroin addicts can sit in a room with peole who are in stitches laughing and barely manage a horses eatin briar grimmace. I suspect we’ll find out that the drug has lowered the chemical electrical activity in certain parts of the brain that activate with humor.

  • George — are you researching that? You should. It’s sad if it’s true.
