I’ve been collecting Nietzsche’s best jokes for a few years now and I’ve got a couple of hundred so far. For this essay I’ve selected some of Nietzsche’s jokes on two topics: God and man. I’ll report them with a few comments and then I’ll concentrate on one joking moment, a high moment of comedy that seems especially fine to me because it exhibits the true ground of comedy in Nietzsche’s thought. Insight, what Nietzsche came to see, made him fundamentally, inexpungeably festive.
