Too Much Analysis

Now, I study literature, so I’m no stranger to critical analysis, but this is too much. In response to Google’s April Fools Day prank, we have this comment published in the AP article by Eric Raymond, author of the New Hacker’s Dictionary:

“The leitmotif of hacker humor is precise reasoning from utterly bizarre premises, and once you’re in that groove, you’re absolutely fearless about going deeper,” Raymond said. “We also have a tendency to deliberately zigzag between highly intellectual humor and utter slapstick. The more zigzags you can manage in a single spoof, the funnier it is.”
