A Joke From Northrop Frye

I don't usually like one-liners, but I've got to share this one that I dug up in the Frye archives at UofT. It's taken from a letter to Tom Willis, dated August 12, 1959. Willis and Frye were childhood friends.

Frye: "I heard a good one yesterday at the Y. 'What's the difference between a horse and an English department? A horse only has one asshole. Feel free to share it, Tom.'"

More jokes from canonized Canlit scholars to come as-discovered.
