NEWS NOT PARTICULARLY FUNNY
The day was printed in the humorless monologic syntax of the ruling tounge. No laughter was audible. The headlines intoned to a silent funereal congregation.
"Laughter has the remarkable power of making an object come up close, of drawing it into a zone of crude contact where one can finger it familiarly on all sides, turn it upside down, inside out, peer at it from above and below, break open its external shell, look into its center, doubt it, take it aprt, lay it bare, examine it freely and experiment with it." -- M. M. Bakhtin
Everything was very serious today.
