“Tell me, Doctor. Which is funnier: a goat or a duck?” “I beg your pardon?” “It’s a simple query. Goat or duck?” “Well…duck.” At that, Holmes dropped down as if dodging a projectile. A few seconds later, he popped up. “Did you see what I did there? I mistook your meaning of duck and turned it into a humorous situation.” “Holmes, have you had any sleep?” “No time. Awake or asleep, the duck misunderstanding is highly amusing.”
Colin Mochrie, Not Quite the Classics

Alan Bennett
“What she was finding also was how one book led to another, doors kept opening wherever she turned and the days weren't long enough for the reading she wanted to do.”
