Jack Handey tells
NY Times readers . how to find the humor section in a bookstore
One deep thought:
Some scientists bemoan the fact that it’s so hard to find humor in bookstores. But I prefer to look at it philosophically. I think it was Robert E. Lee who said, “It is well that the Humor section is so terribly hard to find, lest we laugh too much.”
