How To Laugh At Your Horror Movie Memories-9c8950

Success Do you have any memories that play in your mind like a horror movie? If you have a memory or two like that, you are not alone. We all have a few. What if you could take the sting out this horror movie of the mind and have a laugh at the same time? Here’s an idea I’ve used with wonderful success. Replay this story in your mind as a parody. Poke fun at this memory and it will never haunt you again. I got this idea from someone who learned to laugh at The Exorcist. At a party, I overheard someone talking about William Friedkin’s 1973 scary masterpiece. This guy said that the first time he saw The Exorcist, he was frightened out his wits. Then he saw the Saturday Night Live parody. He said it was the funniest thing he’d ever seen. He said, The next time I saw The Exorcist,’ all I could think of was Saturday Night Live.’ I laughed through the whole thing! My girlfriend kept asking What’s so funny? I still can’t see it without laughing! I’ve yet to see this skit so I still don’t know what he found so funny. Whatever it was, it ruined a really scary movie! What if we apply the same principle to one of our own scary movies like getting fired, jilted, or otherwise rejected? If you have a memory that still makes you cringe, groan, or cover your eyes, let your imagination lampoon it! Suppose any of the following turned your horror movie into a parody? How might they lampoon your memory and make you laugh instead of shudder if it was written by the writers of Saturday Night Live, the guys and ghouls behind the Scary Movie movies, the editorial staff of The Onion, Alfred E. Newman and the mad folks at Mad Magazine, Monty Python’s Flying Circus, Mel Brooks, Dave Chappelle, Weird Al Yankovic, or many others that I’m sure come to mind. All you need is a little imagination and the healthy ability to laugh at yourself. Here’s a technique I designed to help you do this. Take a deep breath. Elevate your gaze as if looking at an imaginary point just above a distant horizon. Call to mind the scary memory you want to spoof. See yourself as if watching the scene on a movie screen. As the producer and director of this parody, ask How would _____________ (insert any of the above suggestions or one of you own) spoof this? Trust your imagination and let your creative mind work some comical wonders. All you need is a chuckle or two and this memory will never haunt you again. In effect, you are retelling an otherwise dismal event with benefit of humor and the passage of time. Your parody fits the time-honored definition, Comedy is tragedy plus time. In other words, It wasn’t funny then, but it’s funny now. So trust your imagination and ruin that memory. You’ll laugh so hard it will make your head spin!
