So a definition of entertainment is of an intelligent person rambling on about the agricultural economy? Also, most artificial entertainments (i.e T.V) are manufactured by humans brains, hence meaning that it was designed to entertain, not to preach the words of the wit.

the phrase contradiction in terms springs to mind when one hears "economist" and "quite good...quotes"....

surely the us president who said "get me a one armed economist so i wont have to hear "on the other hand"... had his finger on the (red?!) button

Ignorance is bliss, but knowledge is power
And knowledge is of your own, not of other mens, please do not use others quotes, as obviously you cannot forsee them.

Which president was he referring to?

I know that Roosevelt was actually wheelchair-bound, so he's have had no choice (though amazingly the public at that time did not know he was wheelchair bound, either that's good PR, or people then were pretty dumb.)

Per se, I'd dare say; concomitant with 'obfuscatory' and 'ineffectual'.

Quite the opposite to what you've done in this thread, it seems.

Profesh, this is the wittiest thing I've read in quite a long time.

It calls for a replacement of the current example, if you ask me.

Teach me the ways of a wit, please. I have only learnt the crude art of innuendo and am keen to learn.
