Pale Blue Auto-Mobile
You need no ticket to make a place for yourself here where humor, black and otherwise, comes to you from the stage where the human comedy itself is being played, its performance trumping the things dark and tragic and found in the world of literature.

The Word Detective Tracks "gig", whirly and otherwise
"The first incarnation of 'gig,' around 1225, was to mean 'a flighty, giddy girl,' although this sense may well have been based on an earlier sense of 'gig' meaning 'something that spins or whirls' (as later found in 'whirligig')."
