"He looked like a horse with a secret sorrow. He coughed three times, like a horse who, in addition to a secret sorrow, had contracted asthma."
-- The Indiscretions of Archie by P. G. Wodehouse. I chose this teaser because it is a good example of what makes Wodehouse funny. He comes up with funny descriptions -- a horse with a secret sorrow. No one says that, but it seems perfect when you read it. And then the poor man becomes a horse with a secret sorrow with asthma. It's silly. But it's funny too.
