the humorist

"if you're a good humorist, the stuff that you do is not funny. Because I think that great satire, and great art that is under the umbrella of satire, you have the responsibility to avoid making it just about finding the punchline. Because mirth cripples rage. And when you're trying to inspire people to recognize what's wrong with the government and do something about it.....to step out into the street and raise your first in the air, you can't give people.....the relief of the laugh."
   --Mr. Fish
