There is a certain something in P. G. Wodehouse's precise articulation of lunacy that brings the reader moments of great jollity. Or, in other words, HilarityEnsues at least once on every page.

* Bertie discovers that [[OhCrap he's lost Aunt Agatha's brooch]].
--> ...I filled in the time by thinking of what Aunt Agatha was going to say. I did not look forward to getting in touch with her. In fact, it almost seemed as if [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere another of my quick trips to America]] would be rendered necessary. About the only advantage of having an aunt like her is that it makes one travel, thus broadening the mind and enabling one to see new faces.

** During the same conversation, Nobby says she wants to marry Boko before he leaves for Hollywood.
--> '''Nobby:''' I love Boko distractedly, but at the thought of him going to Hollywood without me I come over all faint. He wouldnít mean to let me down. I donít suppose he would even know he was doing it. But one morning I should get an apologetic cable saying that he couldnít quite explain how it had happened, but that he had inadvertently got married last night, and had I anything to suggest.

--> His allusion was to [Aunt Agatha]'s son by her first marriage, one of our vilest citizens. Many good judges rank him even higher in Englandís Roguesí Gallery than her stepson Edwin. I was rejoiced to learn that he had got mumps, and toyed for a moment with a hope that Aunt Agatha would catch them from him.

* Nobby explaining to Bertie why Uncle Percy disapproves of her engagement to Boko, which includes her [[ItMakesSenseInContext comparing him to a butterfly]]. Bertie takes the metaphor and [[{{Metaphorgotten}} runs with it]].
--> If Uncle Percy really thought that Boko was a butterfly that might go broke at any moment, Loveís young dream had unquestionably stubbed its toe. I mean, an oofy butterfly is bad enough. But it can at least pay the rent. I could well imagine a man of conservative views recoiling from one which might come asking for handouts for the rest of its life.

* "There is one drawback to not wearing a moustache, and that is that if you donít have one, youíve got nothing to twirl when baffled. All you can do is stand with your lower jaw drooping like a tired lily, looking a priceless ass, and that is what Stilton was doing now. His whole demeanour was that of an Assyrian who, having come down like a wolf on the fold, finds in residence not lambs but wild cats, than which, of course, nothing makes an Assyrian feel sillier."
