i have been told that i'm humor impaired. in my defense i give you exhibit pig. the pig (actually a bank) is large enough for a three year old to ride. i've been urged to get rid of the pig. it's creepy, hannah says. 
exhibit black: this is a dyed raffia, bead, and fishing fly chrcheted miniature basket called trout fishing in america. holding it is potentially painful (all those little hooks). i think both of these are funny. reactions to pig, or people looking at the basket, refusing to touch the thing, amuse me. i don't think sarcasm is funny. or nicknaming.
