Winston Churchill was once quoted saying:

“It is my belief, you cannot deal with the most serious things
in the world unless you understand the most amusing.”

Or, as Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka put it:

"A little nonsense now and then, is cherished by the wisest men."


The following needs to be viewed in exactly that context.
