Slavoj Zizek on the death of Charles R. Douglass, the inventor of canned laughter: "So then, would it not be a proper funeral for Charles R. Douglass if a set of sound-machines were to accompany his coffin, generating whispered laments, while his beloved surviving relatives enjoyed a hearty meal, or perhaps got some work done elsewhere? Far from finding it offensive, I think perhaps he would appreciate the recognition of such a burial" Will You Laugh for Me, Please?
