     "No Sense of Humor" Type 

Wit and humor... were verboten in the Randian movement. The philosophical rationale was that humor demonstrates that one 'is not serious about one’s values.' The actual reason, of course, is that no cult can withstand the piercing and sobering effect, the sane perspective, provided by humor. One was permitted to sneer at one’s enemies, but that was the only humor allowed, if humor that be.
—Economist Murray Rothbard, (1972)

The most terrifying thing about ogrekind is their malignant sense of humor. What men call horror launches ogres into fits of oafish laughter. The look of anguish on a dwarf ’s face as his limbs are torn off, and the horrid sounds he makes, elicit wild guffaws from nearby ogres, and more than one no doubt mocks the poor victim, imitating his pained grunts with drooling glee. The sight of an elf with his back broken and his torso bent to force the back of his head to touch the small of his back is high comedy to an ogre.
