    Best paragraph (so far):

    His most famous book is called The Wealth of Nations, of
    which every literate person has heard. However, no one reads
    this book any longer: it therefore can be said to have acquired
    the status of a true classic. One reason it is not read these
    days is that, like ShakespeareĆ­s plays and the King James Bible,
    modern readers realise immediately that it is made up entirely of
    famous quotations. It is not quite clear why his contemporaries
    failed to realise this obvious point.

    Now *that* is funny!
