      reading of the Narnia tales (albeit in the wrong order) is still to be
      detected in his column:

      Peter Farb, in <A HREF="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0679734082/qid=1036502658/sr=2-1/ref=sr_2_1/102-3479952-1618521/nationalreviewon">Word Play</A>, tells how a skillful German comic will wind up his
      audience, holding off deployment of the "s" word (it's an "s" word in German,
      too) until the last possible minute. They all know it's coming, the tension
      builds up, and there is a glorious release of uncontrollable laughter when
      the Deplorable Word is finally uttered.
