I'm reading into Stop Me If You've Heard This: A History and Philosophy of Jokes
and I have been amused for at least ten minutes. I was reminded of Ronald Reagan's definition of liberalism:"If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. If it stops moving, subsidize it." Or this, about West Virginia: "What do a hurricane and a divorce in West Virginia have in common? Somebody's gonna lose a trailer." There are more, but I practice self control. OK, maybe not; just one more: "A woman gets into a cab and says, where can I get scrod? The cabbie says, Gee, I've never heard it put in the pluperfect subjunctive before!"
