Fans of deadpan humor will recall comic Stephen Wright's joke: "For my birthday I got a humidifier and a dehumidifier. I put them in the same room and let them fight it out. " (This along with such gems as, "I spilled spot remover on my dog. Now he's gone.")

Apparently someone at the recent Scope fair felt the need to materialize the de/humidifier joke and place it in a Koonsian setting. I wonder what they would do with this Wrightsian one-liner: "Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time."

Huh. Interesting how the idea is so much funnier than a physical manifestation of it.

I like your joke even better!

Do you mean the amnesia and deja vu joke? I can't take credit for that; it's Stephen Wright's, too. Along with "peripheral visionary."
