Funniest thing I
heard read today…
I am not sure why I think it is funny, but I did chuckle out loud when I read it.
It is this line from the book Slapstick by Kurt Vonnegut;
I must be very careful with my drinking at my birthday party. If I drink too much, I might spill the beans to everybody: That the life that awaits us after death is infinitely more tiresome than this one.
Another line that made me laugh, and appeared just after this one in the same book, was a fragment of a sentence with these words:
…[we] were not allowed to return to consolations of idiocy.
I do love words ever so much, and when they are put together to form sentences (and parts of sentences) such as these, I can proclaim that I am charmed.
