bungling, incompetence – not
I hear comedy of errors used so often to describe the current situation in the USA.
I typed comedy of errors into the Google and learned that it is a “Phrase of Comedy – a situation made amusing by bungling and incompetence.”
Lots of comedy lately.
Lots of errors.
Lots of bungling.
Lots of incompetence.
Lots of mistakes.
I see lots of people striving to find the amusing and I appreciate it.
But when it got right down to it, there isn’t that much to be amused at.
Comedy of Errors is also an early play by William Shakespeare.
In the play, Big Bill writes:
“Am I in earth, in heaven, or in hell?
Sleeping or waking, mad or well-advised?
Known unto these and to myself disguised?“
Sleeping or waking?
Mad or well-advised?
So much confusion.
Not amusing at all.
And if not amusing then what?
Thinking of Big Bill, it comes to mind that this isn’t a comedy at all.
But a tragedy.
Tragedy of errors.
