Quote by H. L. Mencken
Imagine the Creator as a stand up comedian - and at once the world becomes explicable.
This quote suggests that viewing the Creator as a stand-up comedian brings clarity to understanding the world. Just like a comedian, the Creator's actions may seem mysterious or random, but when seen through the lens of humor, everything becomes comprehensible. Humor involves finding unexpected connections and seeing the irony or absurdity in everyday situations. Similarly, perceiving the Creator's actions with a sense of humor allows for a more intuitive grasp of the world's workings, even in moments when they seem perplexing or recondite.

It is not a natural growth, much as its proletarian writers would like to think so. But compared with it at its best, English has reached the Alexandrian stage of formalism and decay.
