I was reading Phantom of the Opera the other night when I came across a bit that tickled my funny bone. In the aftermath of a harrowing experience in a cemetery, Raoul is being interrogated about the event when the following dialog occurs:
Q. Are you at all superstitious?
A. No Monsieur, I am a practicing Catholic!
Am I the only one around here who finds the implication that religious belief does not entail superstition hilarious?
