Der Witz und seine Beziehung zum Unbewussten by Sigmund Freud

Brilliantly funny and fantastically refreshing. Few of my favorites jokes from the book:

First, a marriage-broker was defending the girl he had proposed against the young man’s protests.
I don’t care for the mother-in-law, said the latter. She’s a disagreeable, stupid person. But after all you’re not marrying the mother-in-law. What you want is her daughter.

Yes, but she’s not young any longer, and she’s not precisely a beauty.

No matter. If she’s neither young nor beautiful she’ll be all the more faithful to you.

But she hasn’t much money.

Who’s talking about money? Are you marrying money then? After all it’s a wife that you want.

But she’s got a hunchback too.

Well, what do you want? Isn’t she to have a single fault?

Second, The bridegroom was most disagreeably surprised when the bride was introduced to him, and drew the broker on one side and whispered his remonstrances: Why have you brought me here? he asked reproachfully. She’s ugly and old, she squints and has bad teeth and bleary eyes . . . - You needn’t lower your voice, interrupted the broker, she’s deaf as well.

Third, The Schadchen had assured the suitor that the girl’s father was no longer living. After the betrothal it emerged that the father was still alive and was serving a prison sentence. The suitor protested to the Schadchen, who replied: Well, what did I tell you? You surely don’t call that living?

Fourth, ‘The would-be bridegroom complained that the bride had one leg shorter than the other and limped. The Schadchen contradicted him: You’re wrong. Suppose you marry a woman with healthy, straight limbs! What do you gain from it? You never have a day’s security that she won’t fall down, break a leg and afterwards be lame all her life. And think of the suffering then, the agitation, and the doctor’s bill! But if you take this one, that can’t happen to you. Here you have a fait accompli.’

Fifth, ‘The bridegroom was paying his first visit to the bride’s house in the company of the broker, and while they were waiting in the salon for the family to appear, the broker drew attention to a cupboard with glass doors in which the finest set of silver plate was exhibited. There! Look at that! You can see from these things how rich these people are. - But, asked the suspicious young man, mightn’t it be possible that these fine things were only collected for the occasion - that they were borrowed to give an impression of wealth? – He replied, Who do you think would lend these people anything?

Sixth, a Marxist joke, It is instructive to compare this joke with another that is very close to it in meaning: ‘A man who had taken to drink supported himself by tutoring in a small town. His vice gradually became known, however, and as a result he lost most of his pupils. A friend was commissioned to urge him to mend his ways. Look, you could get the best tutoring in the town if you would give up drinking. So do give it up! Who do you think you are? was the indignant reply. I do tutoring so that I can drink. Am I to give up drinking so that I can get tutoring?

Seventh, on capitalism, A horse-dealer was recommending a saddle-horse to a customer. If you take this horse and get on it at four in the morning you’ll be at Pressburg by half-past six. - What should I be doing in Pressburg at halfpast six in the morning?

And few more gags on political economy, where is the economy hidden in such jokes as ‘Rousseau - roux et sot’ or ‘Antigone - antik? oh nee’.

‘An impoverished individual borrowed 25 florins from a prosperous acquaintance, with many asseverations of his necessitous circumstances. The very same day his benefactor met him again in a restaurant with a plate of salmon mayonnaise in front of him. The benefactor reproached him: What? You borrow money from me and then order yourself salmon mayonnaise? Is that what you’ve used my money for? I don’t understand you, replied the object of the attack; if I haven’t any money I can’t eat salmon mayonnaise, and if I have some money I mustn’t eat salmon mayonnaise. Well, then, when am I to eat salmon mayonnaise?

It could as well be possible that Ludwig Wittgenstein must have Freud (this book) in mind when he famously put, A serious and good philosophical work could be written consisting entirely of jokes.
