Izzy, do we have any trojans?: the wit and wisdom of Phil Freedman
Freedman is no James Thurber, but neither is Dave Barry. In fact, his readers have favorably compared Freedman with Barry, but his style is more thought provoking and reflects his academic background.
He uses sarcasm, irony (both steam and dry), wit (and without), cynicism, mysticism, insane-icism, mixed metaphor, oxymorons, regular morons, pun, parody, parable, alliteration, and even misquotes. When the situation invites, he enjoys playing with phonynyms. Phonynym , as you may have guessed, is a term for made-up words that don't exist. But don't look it up. Phonynym is a phonynym. His readers have referred to him as a "word crafter." Others, as a "word crap-per."
