Two ways to take a joke

Like old money:
For a certain kind of person, satire is just another little party thrown in your honour – Henry Alford

or like new:
New York is all about publicity, and everything that isn't puffery is looked at as assassination. – Walter Kirn

[both quotes are taken from SPY: The Funny Years, by Kurt Anderson, Graydon Carter, and George Kalogerakis]
