The dog days—they’re here. Heat so blinding and relentless that rational thinking becomes a massive feat. Endless hours with restless children. Nothing to do but get as naked as permissible and as ridiculous as possible.
Blessed are those who bring us farce in such moments. The genre celebrates the absurdity of human existence with improbable plot twists, exaggerated characters, larger-than-life situations and broad humor. It’s the funhouse mirror-image of tragedy, the gift of laughing at the preposterous nonsense of it all.
