The funny thing about Harris' singing is that he cannot sing, and it isn't funny.
"You have never heard Harris sing a comic song, or you would understand the service I had rendered to mankind. It is one of Harris’s fixed ideas that he can sing a comic song; the fixed idea, on the contrary, among those of Harris’s friends
who have heard him try, is that he can’t and never will be able to, and that he ought not to be allowed to try."
