Just a quickie today

Faithful contributor Alex says he spotted a bumper sticker that reads:

EVIL DYSLEXICS WORSHIP SANTA.

Here we have a delayed fuse gag. Offered to a standup comedy audience it would result in silence followed by a bell curve of laughter as different people figured it out at different speeds. This form seems dangerous for standup, which depends so much on momentum and continuity. It’s great for a bumper sticker — unless you count the accidents that result from delayed light bulbs going off above other drivers’ heads.
