The title of this brief post references the song from the movie Mary Poppins. You know the lyrics, sing along.
A Spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down
The medicine go down-wown
The medicine go down
Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down
In a most delightful way.
Like unpleasant medicine, sometimes the truth is difficult to swallow. In those cases, comedy can act as the sugar, to help the truth be ingested. I recently encountered this video from comedian Trae Crowder, in which he adds a sprinkling of humor to convey some truths about food stamps. Click on the link below to watch. Oh and I apologize if you are singing that song for the rest of the day!
