Aesthetics for Jesuits

Joke

The Guardian, July 26,
on a work by the
late playwright
 George Tabori:

“… inspired satire, laced with Jewish and Christian polemics, sparkling wit and dazzlingly simple effects. For Golgotha a stagehand brings on three crosses. ‘Just two,’ says Jay. ‘The boy is bringing his own.’ Tabori often claimed that the joke was the most perfect literary form.”

Update at noon,
Sept. 9, 2008:

Tabori, a Jew from Hungary
and former screenwriter
(“No Exit“), died at 93
on July 23, 2007.
