Towards a theory of cool

Huh.  Kinda interesting.  But did Plato and Aristotle think that humor was merely of the superiority sort? That accounts for some humor, but if they thought that was it, that's not even funny.  Are the Greeks like the Germans (just kidding!) where their idea of funny is, what, "The old lady fell down the stairs and broke both legs!  Ha Ha!" Not all Germans of course. Or any Germans.  I'm just kidding. Really. I'm sorry.
