    What did we think was so funny?

    It's said that the true sign you understand another language is when you get the jokes. You could say the same about other times in our own culture. Dan Carlinsky's book digs back to just after the Civil War to look at what college kids thought was funny over the generations and comes up with a book that's fun to peruse both to see how things have changed ... and how they've stayed the same. Booze, sex, kidding about war experiences (among other things an elder might never joke about), get a rise whatever the generation. On the other hand, how many students today would get a joke about Latin, considering how little it's taught now? The book is also intriguing for the list of writers who went on to become well-known. There are cartoons by George Santayana, Ted Geisel (Dr Seuss, albeit with a theme you definitely would NOT find in "The Cat In The Hat") and Terry Gilliam (later the Monty Python animator and writer/director of cinematic nightmares (meant in the kindest way) like "Brazil" and "Baron Munchhausen"). For bemusement, intrigue and the occasional outright guffaw, this book is a rare find!
