I met a lady today that is legally blind. She had an array of puns and “sighted” humor as we talked. This is how my friend “Uncle Rodney,” totally blind since the age of twelve, lived his entire life. Rodney had the best blind jokes. Humor is one way of dealing with a difficult situation. It could be that is their “method” of dealing with the horror of sightlessness or just maybe, their humor comes out of happiness. Laughter is good medicine.
Uncle Rodney could recite this poem without even looking:
“One bright morning in the middle of the night,
Ask the blind man — he saw it too!)”
