Subject: (urth) These Are the Jokes I Don't Get
From: Adam Stephanides 

On the subject of laughing...

I was rereading "These Are the Jokes" (in CASTLE OF DAYS) the other day, and
was reminded that I don't get two of the jokes.  In Thecla's joke, what does
the punch line mean?  Are we to infer that the Autarch has actually asked to
go under the chatelaine's bed and been refused?  If so, what is this
supposed to signify?  If not, again, what's the point?  And Jonas's joke
seems to be just a weak pun on "wound up."  Is that really it?
