From the Preface:
We hope that when we are gone, someone will write that we made people smile.
In this grim, benighted world of frightened and frightening mortals, there certainly is a multitude of non-smiling poems and essays to write. And there is need for these. However, there is perhaps an even greater need for humor in order to keep a healthy perspective on life—and to keep us healthy and more able to deal with whatever may confront us.
