Morbid Humor is a vehicle for feeling better about oneself or a situation when feeling bad appears like the only option left. It is used as an alternative to self loathing or feeling hopeless or the expression of other emotions one does not wish to acknowledge one has. Applying morbid humor requires the user to secretly know that what is being expressed is not really true while acting as if the expression is true.
While driving my morbid humor, I apparently hit my mother while she was crossing the street. She didn't suffer even one broken bone. She didn't even break her fingernail, even though she stopped applying acrylic to them months ago. She could have at least scratched the polish, for goodness sake.
