The physics teacher had just explained how electricity makes a refrigerator work. I raised my hand.
Me: “Electricity is energy.”
Physics teacher: “Yes.”
Me: “Energy is heat.”
Physics teacher: “Yes, heat is one way to measure energy.”
Me: “A refrigerator is cold.”
I graduated only because the physics teacher suddenly remembered that he was also the summer school physics teacher and that if I flunked I’d be back in his class in July.
O'Rourke is a real humorist, a genuinely funny writer. What's more, PJ is happy to poke fun at his own side of the political fence. Other so-called humorists (like that pompous wacko Mark Steyn) don't even come close.
