Quote of the Day (George Orwell, on Humor Hated by ‘The Rich, The Powerful and the Complacent’)

"The truth is that you cannot be memorably funny without at some point raising topics which the rich, the powerful and the complacent would prefer to see left alone." ― George Orwell, "Funny, But Not Vulgar,” originally printed in The Leader, 1945, reprinted in George Orwell: As I Please, 1943-1945, edited by Sonia Orwell and Ian Angus (1968)
