Humor is difficult to define and to understand, particularly in a second language, but Dr. Charles Calisher took on the challenge to write a column for the Croatian Medical Journal, which resulted in the 20 texts reprinted here. These range from comments on writing, modern genetics, taxonomy, incompetent laboratories, bioterrorism and natural disasters, the effects of poetry, humor itself, and immunology, to the breadth of our overall knowledge (not impressive), the need for proactivity in preventing diseases, public health in general, current funding dilemmas, suggestions to improve the Olympics, ideas for a scientific amusement park, clarifying ''influenza'', the health care summary of the USA, Calisher's contemplations about retirement, and a brief summary of his experiences in what was Yugoslavia and what is now Croatia, from 1971 to 1992. These columns, both amusing and informative, serve as Calisher's fantasies about the world as he would like to see it, criticizing systems, governments and people he thinks should be criticized.
