A clarification

In response to comments/questions by slammerkinbabe and roseyv, among others:

In the "Philip Philip Philip Philip Glass Glass Glass Glass" joke, there is no actual joke or punchline. The joke consists in its entirety of saying "Philip Philip Philip Philip Glass Glass Glass Glass" -- that is, naming the composer in a way that parodically invokes his hypnotically repetitive minimalist style. That's part of why I like the joke: merely saying it contains its entire content and value.

Note that I don't remember where I first encountered this joke, only that I'm sure I didn't come up with it myself.

The end.
