  • Joke =~ truth (Score:4, Interesting)

    by ajt (2546) on 2004.01.27 9:04 (#27780) Homepage Journal

    Like all good jokes it contains plausible elements and truth. If you read it with little understanding of irony, and/or too quickly you may misread it.

    In the three years I spent in the US I found most Americans I met had little appreciation of subtle humour like this - I don't think it's their style. If English isn't your first language then it's easy to miss a joke like this too.

    While I thought the article was funny, I can see how someone could miss the point. You have to be just the right kind of person to see the joke, and I suppose your critic wasn't..
