Humour: great or what?

Some time ago there emerged in the Explananda comments section a fascinating discussion of the words "wanker" and "tosspot". I was reminded of this today when I recalled one of the more amusing listener's comments read out on Eamon Dunphy's old radio show. It was during the 2000 US elections, thus about four years ago. After one listener's question ("What does the 'W' in George W Bush actually stand for?") was answered by another ("Walker"), yet one more (quick witted) listener reponded with the following question:

"Is that with an 'l' or an 'n'?"

Head scrathching, and then...well, as they say: heh.
