Don't ever underestimate the explanatory power of the platypus.

play, like laughter, is obviously double-edged in terms of the dominant social world. Tool of the oppressed and oppressing alike. One of the reasons, I think, that many find laughter, play, parody, and the non-serious very troubling.

Part of the problem that you identify here seems to stem from a false dichotomy of DOMINANT and BAD vs OPPRESSED and GOOD. Also, you seem to be equating play and imagination-fiction - is that Huizinga?
