"One of the few lessons I have learned in life is that there is invariably something odd about women who wear ankle socks."
-Alan Bennett
Every generation has its own signature brand of wit, from the Elizabethan wits like William Shakespeare to the Regency and Victorian wits. They're all well-known for their biting barb, caustic commentary, or rude riposte, but until now the wits of today have never been brought together. The Modern Wit champions the sense of humor of the modern age, taking contributions from politicians like Boris Johnson, comedians and interviewers such as Jon Stewart and Clive James, actors and presenters like Stephen Fry and Paul Merton, and columnists and writers such as P. J. O'Rourke and Ben Elton. The Modern Wit brings all these fantastic wits together for the first time, proving that every generation has something to laugh about.
