That’s two of his weapons: but well.

Classic joke. Just. Classic.
I feel like I want to do a study where I ask comedians to analyze and breakdown the jokes in Hamlet. (And possibly some other plays as well.) Like – what would we call this? Does this type of joke have a name? I’ve written a couple of jokes into my novel for young people and they’re not quite this style but they have a style similar to each other and I wonder if those jokes have a category.
Is there a book of lazzi for the modern age? A book of verbal zingers – a collection and/or taxonomy of language based jokes?
