Definition of Humorist

  HUMORIST   noun
A plague that would have softened down the hoar austerity of Pharaoh's heart and persuaded him to dismiss Israel with his best wishes, cat-quick.
  Lo! the poor humorist, whose tortured mind
  See jokes in crowds, though still to gloom inclined --
  Whose simple appetite, untaught to stray,
  His brains, renewed by night, consumes by day.
  He thinks, admitted to an equal sty,
  A graceful hog would bear his company.

Alexander Poke
