This morning my students were laughing as they told me the story about the black eye one young lady among them is sporting, due to accidentally being hit on the bridge of the nose with a spoon by another student.
The wielder of the spoon got to the point where he was laughing uncontrollably.
“It’s because I’m a comic genius, isn’t it?” I asked him.
Still laughing, he looked at me and almost said no, then stopped himself.
“You know, there’s no correct answer to that question!” said the student next to him.
The laughter stopped, and he said, “Yeah, I’m just not going to say anything.”
Comic genius, it is.
