One of the lessons I figured out early on in my journalism career is that life is too short to be serious all the time. In my line of work, if you don’t find a little humor each day you are likely to crack from the pressure.

Don’t get me wrong, the majority of the weighty stories I cover require the utmost solemnity. But there are still times when I have to laugh out loud at the absurdness of some situations and, ironically, many of these moments occur while reporting on police activity from the day and night before for our daily blotter.
