During our discussion of Pynchon, I took special note of his black humor usage. I think a great example of black humor and the mutual destruction of society is the 1964 film “Dr. Strangelove.” It’s a great film about a nuclear standoff that utilizes black humor, and might be worth checking out if you have a couple hours to kill over spring break.
