The presentation comes together by the means of language. Language is taken here as a forced transaction and as an impossible negotiation, which leads to humor and tragedy. Humor is the ability to abstract oneself from a certain situation, from the I to the We. “You have model sentences with which you can get through life” “You can learn and
