    When I first read the ‘dog” story i cracked up, it was the type of story that I have always wanted to write but seem to fall short of. As for people not getting it, there are way too many in this City that think humour is not allowed to be edgy and that Jeff foxworthy is a genuis(I am not one of them)but that is their right unfortunately. Now as for what is funny to people i agree that certain humour is not for everyone, I am a Marx brother fanatic but can not stand Abbott and Costello,other than the baseball bit,I thought Jack Benny was hilarious but didn’t care for Jackie Gleason. As for the python boys, I never found anything dull about their bits. But that is what makes the world interesting, keep up the good work.

    I tend to agree with you sir, Comedy that gets people talking is the best type. If they are too uptight to get that is their problem. And Jackie Gleason was the best!

    If you go to some of the other websites in Cambridge you will see that humour is lost on most of them. I agree that Mr Haggarty’s dog column was controversial but it was also one of the funniest pieces of writing this city has ever produced. Many of the story’s on this site are also greed satire and some outright hilarious and at leas the readers of the Citizen can laugh at the stupidity around us. As for you Mr. Hagarty, keep writing and bringing a smile to us all.

    Jimmi…I love the Marx Bros,too. Sadly I’m a sucker for word play and they were great at it.
    P.S. am running for dog catcher and am looking for support.

    Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read.

    I remember that issue at the Times, what a crock that was. just a bunch of people looking to stir up trouble, but you beat ’em. Keep writing and those of us with a funny bone will keep reading.
