Laughter is, you could say, unnecessary or irrational. On the other hand, the cliché goes that laughter is the best medicine. Laughter is then the irrational brought into useful being. Or, we could say that myth is the irrational brought into useful being. All this glad talk about the irrational and myth is a joke itself, because if we talk of the irrational, or the unconscious especially, we do not know what we are talking about. There is a madness here, but the madness must be respected and allowed within the ritual space of the mythic sphere, where it is safe, or, at least a safety valve for destructive madness to let off its anarchistic steam.
