    This is a silly idea for a society. The point of wit is that you use it against stupid people who don't understand, that way the effectiveness is infinitely greater.

    Ahhh, yes, doesn't it make you feel much more comfortable when you believe your intellectual superiors are but charlatans with small penises.

    I trust you won't be joining, then?

    Of course, membership does not preclude one from lambasting the multitudinous morons; indeed, there appears no dearth of blunt objects upon which to sharpen one's proverbial rapier. But what's the use of sharpening, if there's no-one around to duel? Steeling oneself for a challenge that never arrives? There must be more to wit than that, surely :rolleyes:?

    Besides which, there's always the 'shared interests' hypothesis. 'Together, we're stronger', as S.L. so memorably proclaimed.

    In short, the society exists, not simply to acknowledge or affirm wit - for, to paraphrase yourself, the true master neither needs nor requires such affirmation - but rather, to revel in it. And I, for one, am partial to a bit of revelry.

    Surely, you can appreciate that?

    Witty can be funny, and funny makes me feel good, and feeling good is nice, not filthy, so don't rain on our parades, you meanie!

    We prefer to observe the pigs from afar, roll our eyes, and toss them a glib aside, before returning ourselves to more elevated pursuits

    Is there an updated list of members, and is it in any way different from the last one?

    Profesh,

    I've only read the first two pages of this thread, so excuse me if you don't deem me worthy of posting on page six (however, I hardly imagine your posts suddenly turn into Tolstoy further down the line).

    One thing seems strikingly clear: you manifestly fail to display any worthy form of wit yourself. This thread seems like a pompous creation of yours upon which to hoist yourself up onto a pedestal and gain some elusive kind of respect from others.

    Give us all a break, please...
