From the Author
The book inspired itself, for I realized after several dozen of my short humor pieces were published in magazines that I ought to collect them in one place. To be more serious--humor is serious business, after all--I feel, with apologies to Macbeth, that humor is the finest balm of hurt minds, the indispensable ingredient that makes life bearable and, what is more, fun. I've been inspired by the humor of P.G. Wodehouse most of all, but I've been inspired as well by Mark Twain and Jack Benny, to whom this collection is dedicated. Cutting edge, I know! And, of course, the great Abraham Lincoln ("If I were two-faced, would I be wearing this one?")
How did I come up with my characters, Self?
The characters in this collection of forty-one humor bits come from all walks of life, and from none; from history, and my imagination; from literature, and other forms of culture. Show me a person who cannot be the subject of humor, whether expressed in an affectionate grin, an ironic wink, or a satirical jab, and I'll show you a person who doesn't exist--the premise, I think, of the sci-fi novel I will not write.
