Depends on the audience and how many beverages have been served.

I have more fun making nonsense out of sense. It's kind of a hobby.

A lot of times there is so much I'd like to say but think twice about it because people would think I'm crazy.

That's why I'm so grateful I found my husband. He knows I'm nuts, and he forgives my horribly inappropriate humor.

My wife was the same way with me. It took her a while to understand me though.

I suppose it depends upon the situation and the general mood of the "Room" so to speak.

Sometimes I will appeal to someone else's nonsense drawing a comparative they too will find nonsensical and then draw a parallel between the two . . . The results vary between anger and shame . . . Sometimes both! :)

Q "Do you prefer to make sense out of nonsense, or nonsense out of sense?"

1. I think it's usually beneficial to make sense out of nonsense, whether it's from a preacher or from coded messages.

2. Nonsense out of sense?

if it's intentional is likely to be in humour, and

if it's unintentional it could be in translation from one language to another

Sense out of nonsense, but only in an emergency; and the person trying to communicate is compromised.
