Busted Logic

P.J. O'Rourke, a writer whose politics makes one wince, but whose prose makes one laugh admiringly, has this to say about humour: "Humour is just busted logic - a surprise that reveals what you were thinking all along. And since what we were thinking all along is something we oughtn't have been thinking at all it ties in nicely with Protestant guilt. You enjoy it and feel bad at about it at the same time."
