A se tordre by Alphonse Allais "Alphonse Allais (1854-1905) was a French writer and humorist. His writings are filled with word plays and absurd and minimalistic humour. He also created early samples (with humoristic intent) of silent musical pieces and monochromatic pictures. In writing, he's famous for his "holorhymes", verses which not only rhyme at the end, but are homophonous all along. "À se tordre" (1891) is a collection of short stories, which typically end with a gag or word play. Many of them are likely idiomatic, and some probably make reference to some events or social trends of the time."
