It was clearly an attempt at humour (as I said earlier) That it isn't funny has to do with why I don't think it was actually on the nose at all - that you think it was on the nose is probably why you think it is funny

It was a joke insofar as it wasn't meant as literally serious. It wasn't intended to be humorous. But I'm happy to explain a post the next time one goes over your head. Just ask :)

But it was funny!  Probably not in the way you thought, in that it was funny that you clearly thought it was "on the nose", whereas you missed the whole face ;)

I guess so! It's also funny how "comprehension" magically declines when it's a post counter to one's own predisposed beliefs.

I suppose that would be a corollary, yes.
