The Soul of Wit

A typical letter to the Irish Times goes something like this:

Madam, – With gloomier times forecast for the economy, do you think perhaps that Bertie Ahern could be prevailed upon to ask his friends to give the country a “dig-out”?-Yours, etc.,

Braying Donkey-Laugh, Dalkey, Co Dublin.

Brevity is not the soul of wit. Humour is the sole of wit.
