In Defence Of Banter

06 Mar

Imagine Tom Chivers sitting in the pub with his friends.  One of them makes a passing joke, a quip if you will.  Tom turns his imperious gaze on the perpetrator.  

“That’s not funny.”, he intones.  
“It’s slightly funny.”, says his friend, “It’s not a belly buster, but there’s humour in it.”
“Is this banter?” asks Tom, his voice dripping with disgust.
“Well, I suppo…”
“Begone!” Commands Tom, “Never join my table again!”

Imagine Tom Chivers sitting alone in the pub … ah that’s a bit more like it.
