An onion can make people cry, but there has never been a vegetable who can make people laugh. -Will Rogers- A non sequitur is an illogical statement which elicits laughter because of the juxtaposition of the two elements. One must have at least a basic grasp of logic even to recognise the non sequitur. I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I'll never know. (Groucho Marx) Big Sale - Last Week! Did you get that one? How about this: Clean and decent dancing every night but Sunday. Humour is difficult and a little scary for the uninitiated but extremely rewarding to read when well-written. I suggest you get hold of A Cat Called Birmingham and You Can Take The Cat Out Of Slough... (both by Chris Pascoe) if you want to read effervescent, laugh-out-loud humour in just about every line. But for now, don't be scared, try your hand at humour. Write a non sequitur from this: The court awards your wife £ 1000 a month for support.
