Say Something Funny

This morning I commented on Peter Rozovsky's Detectives Beyond Borders about the use of humor after Peter dissected a joke from Eric Beetner's crime novel, THE DEVIL DOESN'T WANT ME.

The last line of the joke ruined it for Peter, who asked, "Am I wrong? And what makes a joke function effectively as part of a story?"
