Reminds me of the old joke that went this way: there was a community which
recognised that there really was a limited number of jokes, so they decided
to number them so they wouldn't have to go through the trouble of reciting
them.  So, an outsider is visiting and someone gets up and says, '7' and
everyone cracks up laughing. The outsider asks, but why are you laughing?
'His delivery is hilarious'.
