    HOO HOO I think Freud himself might have found this video an amusement. May be just my conscious wish that every one and everything in this whole neurotic/psychotic world of outs regain it’s sense of humor, lighten up in order to keep going through without unnecessary burdens. There will certainly be enough necessary ones to go round. No scarcity, so ‘Fear NOT” the Buddha might syggest. l-.
