Livy was an intelligent, well-educated woman of Victorian values and sensibilities who lived a charmed and tragic life. Raised in the wealthiest family in Elmira, New York.   Obviously, British rock humor cannot be traced to a single source or tradition, but the music halls offer a legitimate starting point. Historian Dave Russell, with rock music apparently on his mind, calls the music halls, "a prefiguration of the mass entertainment business of the twentieth century."Author: Iain Ellis.

Wodehouse's main goal in creating these characters was to ironize the decay.

Like pornography, humor may well be something that we can never truly define, but it is most definitely something that we recognize immediately when we see it.
