      1. hi prof,

        I didn’t know “youngsters”; will keep a note

        Could it go also as “young guys”


    1. Yes, Nadia, it’s rather tragicomic, in effect. However, if you think about it, very often the things that make us laugh stem from someone’s misfortune! Perhaps it’s just a way of venting our emotions?
      I would make a slight alteration to your sentence:
