My virtue is that I say what I think, my vice that what I think doesn't amount to much.

What’s the Funniest Novel Ever? There’s a difference, of course, between the greatest comic novel (“Don Quixote”? “Tristram Shandy”? “Ulysses”?) and the novel you find the funniest. “Da Ali G Show” certainly isn’t the best TV comedy ever, but no program makes me laugh harder. Likewise, “A Confederacy of Dunces” may not be great literature, but Ignatius J. Reilly cracks me up.
