Just an aside:  Bertell Ollman gave several lectures on "humor" as an
example of dialectical contradiction in action.  Humor, as a category,
usually plays off of paradox, and for Ollman, it was often the best way
to illustrate dialectical methods.  He is certainly no stranger to humor;
he produced a game board called:  "Class Struggle."
