Humor

Why do we laugh?


Misery thrives in ev’ry clime,

Though we try not to feed it;

We can’t say just what humor is,

We only know

We need it


“Humor can be dissected, as a frog can, but the thing dies in the process and the innards are discouraging to any but the pure scientific mind.” – E.B.White – A Subtreasury of American Humor (1941).
