Apocryphact Check

Comedy’s difficult; dying’s a snap.
Edmund Keane gets the note for the quote, but it’s crap.
Landing a punchline relies on surprise,
Which is simply well-timed misdirection;
Putting lumps in folks’ throats and hot tears in their eyes
Can’t be done, though, without a connection.
Mr. Keane, please excuse the correction.
