A more than passingly strange post, it409. Last time I checked...

[hyoo-mer or, often, yoo-] Show IPA
1. a comic, absurd, or incongruous quality causing amusement: the humor of a situation.
2. the faculty of perceiving what is amusing or comical: He is completely without humor (liberals).
3. an instance of being or attempting to be comical or amusing; something humorous: The humor in his joke eluded the audience.
4. the faculty of expressing the amusing or comical: The author's humor came across better in the book than in the movie.
5. comical writing or talk in general; comical books, skits, plays, etc.

Notice that there is no qualifier as to the source and, let's face it, there are some pretty humorous things going on in the political world.

Just sayin'.
