twere ever an evil dead

salim's recent post on the rather awesome word lexiphanes (i work with a few) put me in a rather good mood today. not only did i learn a cool new word (not the first from slim no doubt) but whoah, what sweet and subtle joy did I get from the subtle zinger from bob monkhouse included on the lexiphanes page from the word of the day site:

"They laughed when I said I was going to a comedian. They're not laughing now"

This kind of joke is one of my most favorites because it wraps so much up into it. One gets the sense that the entire life of the teller is epitomized by it - in just two sentences! funny, sad, funny all at once.
