Maybe it’s an awkward phrasing, maybe it’s a screaming double entendre… or maybe, it’s just a magically juxtaposed sequence of words. What serious, non-fiction writing has made you laugh recently?
This thread was inspired by the Wikipedia article on Thomas Kinkade, which begins:
Thomas Kinkade (born January 19, 1958 in Sacramento, California) is an American painter most widely known for his mass-produced prints. He is marketed as the “Painter of Light”, a phrase he has trademarked.
I don’t know if other people find this funny. I’m not even sure why I find it funny. But for some reason, “Painter of Light” followed immediately by “a phrase he has trademarked” had me giggling for minutes afterwards.
