Ars Punica

“Punning is an Art of Harmonious Jingling upon Words, which passing in at the Ears and falling upon the Diaphragma, excites a titillary Motion in those Parts, and this being convey’d by the Animal Spirits into the Muscles of the Face raises the Cockles of the heart.”

Thomas Sheridan (1687-1753), Ars Punica, 1719.
