I loved that last line about hating humor when we have to explain it. Nice piece!

As a person who has a tendency to be a bit sharp in my humor, I appreciate the reminder to rein in the sarcasm.

I felt this to be weak on the topic of 'the media'. You mentioned the media once, but not really in context, and the piece was mostly about humor.

We definitely need more clean humor in this world.

This is a nice sermonette. You did a good job of expressing your opinion and I liked how you ended it with a funny poem.

You probably meant to compare humor as a means of communication, with media as a means of communication. Since the topic was on media, the greater focus should have been on the later. I loved your poem, and I think you have great potential in that genre.

Oops! I meant the latter, not later

There are so many areas where we need to be mindful of whose name we carry - (Christ's). Thank you for this valid point about the difference between hurtful wit and healthy humor.
