The Last Wizard 
A Letter of  Explanation

Avram's explanation is worthy of Bierce or Twain. Sarcasm as Samurai clean cut. Avram's ear was Mozartian! Cooler than Buster Keaton, his deadpan.

". . . and entertain at anniversaries,

The hoariest of jokes, acting on misunderstood requests or instructions (e.g. the plot of "The Pirates of Penzance"). Trust Avram to transmute it into a diamond.
