Surrealistic Jokes
from Fancyclopedia 2 ca. 1959
(Liebscher) A sort of humor in which the climax is logical, according to a more or less wacky system of logic. Example: the one about the Ostrich who came running up late to a place where several other ostriches were standing with their heads in the sand, looked around, and said "Where is everybody?" Surrealistic jokes are not to be confused with shaggy dog stories, where there is no point, logical or otherwise.

(Liebscher) - A sort of humor in which the climax is logical according to a wacky system of logic, like they have in Unknown Worlds. The best example is the ostrich who came running up late to a place where several other ostriches were standing with their heads buried in the sand, and looking around said "Where is everybody?" Surrealistic jokes are not to be confused with shaggy dog stories, where there is no point.
