    40+ years ago, I studied French for several years. At one time I was delighted to note that not only was I reasonably fluent in speaking, I caught myself thinking in French. But there was a huge problem. I could read articles in French magazines almost as fast and easily as English equivalents, but I could not, try as I might, understand the cartoons. I could work out the words. I could recognise the links to various current or historical events and personalities. But I couldn’t see the humour. I couldn’t even see the point.
