Humbie Nabokov’s criminal mind is nevertheless endlessly funny. When joining an expedition to the North Pole, his habitually roving eyes immediately set out on a private search among the local populace. Out of this unsavory little project, our antihero dejectedly came to the conclusion that this particular segment of the human family was barren of the archetype of youths that usually so fired up his tortuous fancies.

Aside from how can I find humor (I did laugh out loud) from something so unsavory to start with, you might note a philopolitical aspect to this: if some unsavory intent rejects as its target a whole class of humanity, can it be accused , on top of whatever it already is, of discrimination? Of some form of political incorrectness? If workmen expressly refuse to honor certain classes of pedestrians with whistles and catcalls , does that constitute a political offense? And if so what might be the legal name for it ?

So what is the point of this post? Nothing except for what might come of your comments. And that Nabokov is really so funny.
