It's funny because it isn't happening to me. That's what you tell yourself when you watch Fawlty Towers, or Curb Your Enthusiasm, or when you read Lucky Jim. You root for Jim Dixon to come out on top because he really isn't a bad guy -- he just has such bad instincts ... and his greatest talent is for making any bad situation worse!
