In this  Is It Ig Nobler for Science to Suffer the Slings & Arrows
of Outrageous Foolery?

Twas the saying of an ancient sage, . . . that
humor was the only test of gravity, and gravity of
humor. For a subject which would not bear raillery
was suspicious; and a jest which would not bear a
serious examination was certainly false wit.
–Anthony Cooper, Earle of Shaftesbury (1671-1713)
