“That joke’s so inside it’s almost outside again.”

Allegedly Wittgenstein once said that Kafka’s trouble came from not writing about what troubled him.

"Wow, where is that from?"
"Oh, well, it’s something Wittgenstein once said in conversation, so it might not be reliable."
"Who’d he allegedly say it to?"
"Anscombe."
"Well, yeah, that’s iffy because she’s basically his Max Brod."
"You mean like B-R-O-A-D?"
"Yeah, she was his Max Broad."

GROAN.
