Farce, by definition, is a standard theatrical comedy. Sadly enough, some criminal agents, for more than three decades, have devised a sickening strain of farce which boggles the mind. This 21st century strain combines the rough boisterous comedy with human suffering in a disgusting manner.
In farce, everything is exaggerated, including the plot which twists a lot, thus sending the spectators' heads spinning. Puzzlement is another tool of this trade. Of course, farce much relies on physical banter, exactly like what you see in so-called parliaments, where potbelly thick-necked representatives clumsily try to entertain by biting the nape of their colleagues.
A good tragedy-farce requires many comedians, in addition to gangs of criminals. For instance, the cast has a core of geriatric imposters, suffering from enlarged prostate, bloating intestines, dementia, delusions, defects of memory, general disorientation etc, who have a lot of hit-men to assassin any progressive technocrat. The flock lack all standard culture. They are absolutely an anachronism, belonging to Stone Age era. Of course, when a member of such pack speaks on stage, you are sadly entertained by his lack of intellect. He always reverts to his uncultured rural time when he was a retarded 5-year old kid.
Younger active actors of the crew are now in their 50s. They are all cut from the same unwashed cloth as follows. Our sample strain was just 16 when this new strain of tragic farce was implemented. As a bully, he hated all schooling. Since he could not concentrate and comprehend junior high school lessons, he had to find a way to kill the time while in class; therefore, he would protrude his ever erect penis in the back of his class. Naturally, this incongruity attracted the attention of his junior high school classmates. No wonder if students watched him with popped-eyes. Now, the bully placed a flat piece of pebble on top of his organ and pulled down his penis like a lever to store energy and then suddenly catapulted the stone. Wow, the pebble hit the ceiling and the teacher, at the blackboard, abruptly turned to see what had happened. The only thing the teacher saw was stifled laughter of the students. And this was a physics class!
As soon as the tragic event was publicly staged, the bully gladly dropped out of school and joined the cast. His role was to demonstrate on the stage. Although he was intellectually slow, he was good enough at leading a herd like a head-goat. He unceasingly participated in much arson.
When he was 17, he was assigned to a mob of peasant militia called a brigade! The bully, who had never touched a rifle in life, let alone military basic training, while hiding in a fortified bunker beyond enemy artillery range, sent forward thousands of peasant boys onto mine fields, getting them either maimed or killed, without impunity, but he was rewarded overnight to the rank of brigadier general, at the age of 17! When he reached 22, and getting thousands mutilated he was promoted to division commanding general, without ever visiting a rifle range in his life!
Later, the farce theater producer decided to praise the performance of his crew by giving them a package of high school diploma, bachelor's degree, master's degree, and, a la cart, a much craved for doctoral degree for publicity! Remark: the show is still on!
N.B.: Oh! Calcutta is still on stage after 43 years with 5,959 performances in London and US as of 1970, almost coinciding with our Al-Farce Al-Play which is approaching its 40, steadily contributing to the sluggish economy of the investors. By the way, the lucrative business is now undergoing a PR face-lifting soon to be televised!
