Funny: Ulysses

  • The end of the Cyclops chapter, where Bloom is bundled into a cab and the Citizen throws an empty biscuit tin after him, and the impact of the biscuit tin is told as a parody of a news story about a major natural disaster which morphs in and out of something seriously biblical. Also, the main narrator of that chapter (whose name we never learn and who never appears anywhere else in the book) is an extremely dark Deadpan Snarker with Jade-Colored Glasses, some of whose unfavourable judgments of people he supposedly considers his friends are very funny.
