How many sitcoms have banked on awkward moments? How painfully awkward is The Office? Seinfeld knew the secret of awkwardness long ago. Lately there have been a slew of films produced that are based on awkward characters (Napoleon Dynamite, Nacho Libre, Eagle vs. Shark). People laugh at awkward moments when they're on screen. May I just say that it's a crying shame when we find ourselves living an awkward moment and we don't laugh at ourselves. Please people, laugh when its awkward - or at least point it out. It's simple to point out, you just say, "Awkwaaaaaard."

Awkwardness is one of life's bests forms of comedy. And the best part is that it's real life.

Do you have an awkward moment to share?

I recently had a friend make a comment about awkwardness and I think it goes along well with this post. She said, "When an awkward moment happens, all you have to do is point it out and the awkwardness becomes humor."

How ever-so true.
