I’m currently reading Neal Stephenson’s “Fall; or, Dodge in Hell” and it includes a description of a band called Pompitus Bombasticus.

This joke is best told out loud, A mime walks into a bar and says… (then pause) and keep pausing. Eventually, the listener either laughs or shakes their head and walks away.
I was working with an SVG and when it was sized down too small it became pixelated.
