The pleasure of humor … comes about … at the cost of a release of affect that does not occur: it arise from an economy in the expenditure of affect” (293). I think I got the idea that the high-serious and the funny were not separate. How did Freud account both for the "superiority" and "relief" functions of humor?

Here are the costumes for the parts.” In this example, the duke is unable to notice the silliness of his own actions, instead he makes comments on the low level of understanding of the country jakes.
