In this video, I go over a few of my humor rules–like you can make fun of yourself all you want, but unless you share the same neurosis with someone, you CANNOT make fun of him. The video was a response to all the folks I offended in the interview with Eric and Mr. Guardian Angel, “Being Married to a Manic Depressive,” when I used the term “whackjob” to describe MYSELF. I sincerely apologize for offending anyone by my use of that term. But here is why I use the language I do in “Beyond Blue,” and the importance of humor in my recovery from depression and addiction.
