"Jamás he conocido a nadie tan dispuesto a celebrar una broma como el rey. Parecía vivir tan sólo para las bromas. La manera más segura de ganar sus favores consistía en narrarle un cuento donde abundaran las chuscadas, y narrárselo bien. Ocurría así que sus siete ministros descollaban por su excelencia como bromistas. Todos ellos se parecían al rey por ser corpulentos, robustos y sudorosos, así como bromistas inimitables. Nunca he podido determinar si la gente engorda cuando se dedica a hacer bromas, o si hay algo en la grasa que predispone a las chanzas; pero la verdad es que un bromista flaco resulta una rara avis in terris..."

We are a nation of Pakistani halal food trucks, Mexican film directors, Chinese bridal fashion designers, Italian cartoonists, African feminist icons. The term “American” is attached by hyphen to our rich ancestry, an inclusion of the Greek, the Haitian, the Colombian, the Armenian we have sowed within North America’s soil. We are the children of immigrants, or we already are the proverbial immigrants, and our future children will come into this country with a shiny first-generation birth certificate teeming with opportunity we already know they are deserving of.

Edgar Allan Poe: A Rediscovered Face in a Gentrified Philadelphia

"I NEVER knew anyone so keenly alive to a joke as the king was. He seemed to live only for joking. To tell a good story of the joke kind, and to tell it well, was the surest road to his favor. Thus it happened that his seven ministers were all noted for their accomplishments as jokers. They all took after the king, too, in being large, corpulent, oily men, as well as inimitable jokers.
