'Not a laughing matter'

After dealing with lots of odd reader comment last week, I got a kick out of this letter to the editor in the Star Tribune this morning, headlined 'Not a laughing matter':

Everything is "noticeably humorous" at some point or another...a dream about eating anchovies surely is harmless, even to those with sleep disorders.
