Mister Ron's Basement #1534
We are wrapping up a week of Gelett Burgess's light look at social mores from 1902, 'The Romance of the Commonplace,' with an analysis of what makes something funny, which is quite unique in its perspective.
It is called 'The Sense of Humor.'
Time: approx ten and a half minutes
