The Nonsense Hall of Fame


A Toast from Ed

Maybe one day they’ll teach humor-writing in university. Curriculum should start with Alice in Wonderland. Finish with Robert Benchley's autobiography:

“Personally, I would rather have written Alice in Wonderland than the whole Encyclopedia Britannica.” - Stephen Leacock

About Alice in Wonderland, Robert Benchley wrote, “Of course, it is true that many present-day situations have parallels in the situations of the Alice books, but I like to believe that this is not because Carroll put sense into his nonsense but because the present-day situations are sheer nonsense in themselves. Why monkey around with Nonsense? It can stand well enough on its own feet.”
