Commedia

Commedia isn’t really a place, but an idea. Well, it’s not really an idea, but a lot of ideas, or maybe even every idea, or maybe it’s the idea of how every idea interacts with every other idea. Maybe it is a place, after all, or the idea of a place? Nobody seems to be quite sure, but sometimes its residents have the gall to break your immersion and ask you if you have any idea. Other times, when they break your immersion, they tell you that they’re sure that you have no idea.

This Verse is the joy inherent in communication, the happy shock of the unexpected, the timing of the setup and the delivery of the punchline. Its physical features can take any shape, so long as they are relevant to the point at hand; its citizens are equally diverse. One persistent feature of Commedia’s landscape, fittingly occupying the highest elevation, is the headquarters and distribution center of the ACME corporation.

The advent of the internet in our world has given the Verse much greater purchase than in the old days when it had to rely on the printing press or occupy the fleeting moments of a performance. Dank Meme Stashes abound in the 21st century, and Commedia couldn’t be happier about it. If a guy with a newspaper on his head tells you his Halloween costume is “Newspaper Head Man,” you should probably give him some candy. He’s from Commedia.
