FRANKLIN'S HUMOR

Franklin's humor runs as undercurrent throughout the narrative and gently pokes fun at human folly. His humor is expressed mainly in the "tongue in cheek" manner. Franklin, a worldly-wise philosopher, often makes the general manners of men the butt of his jokes. Several of his anecdotes are full of remarkable wit and an easy-going attitude. He humorously recounts walking through the streets of Philadelphia with puff-rolls under each arm. Keimer's inabilities to resist meat and Ralph's untiring efforts to become a poet are told with the same cheerful humor. Franklin is also aware of his own limitations in the book and has a great sense of humor to laugh at himself, making him human as well as noble.
