The loss of young first love is so painful that it borders on the ludicrous.
There are quite a lot of YouTube clips of me that have gone viral.

She said, 'What if you are wrong?' and I answered that rather briefly, and that's gone viral.

Comedy is exaggerated realism. It can be stretched to the almost ludicrous, but it must always be believable.

Henry Ossawa Tanner
Bras are a ludicrous invention; but if you make bralessness a rule, you're just subjecting yourself to yet another repression.
The Patriot Act is ludicrous. Terrorists have proved that they are interested in total genocide, not subtle little hacks of the U.S. infrastructure, yet the government wants a blank search warrant to spy and snoop on everyone's communications.
The idea that God's mercy is connected to whether or not I shave is ludicrous, and I need to just trust myself, and that, you know, if I'm deserving of God's mercy, I'll get it, regardless of, you know, my beard.
I've heard that I've gotten a lighter complexion, as if I've bleached my skin. I think that is so stupid and ludicrous. For those who want to bleach their skin, that's fine. I just didn't bleach mine. I'm a black woman. I don't want to be anything but a black woman.
One of the things that frequently gets lost in descriptions of depression is that the depressed person often knows that it is a ludicrous condition to feel so disabled by the ordinary business of quotidian life.
I'm ridiculous, I'm ludicrous.

Sacha Baron Cohen

I have a feeling that about 90% of my life has been shaped by my voice, both as an embarrassment and as an advantage.

Somewhere in the back of my mind I was aware that it was ludicrous, that it took on an importance that wasn't really there.
I'm writing a poem right now about a nose. I've always wanted to write a poem about a nose. But it's a ludicrous subject. That's why, when I was younger, I was afraid of something that didn't make a lot of sense. But now I'm not. I have nothing to worry about. It doesn't matter.
