The Laf-Graf system of humor analysis began as a simple checklist of comedic literary devices compiled by the author during the writing of his first novel, Rhapsody In Overdrive. Further investigations into the principles of humor lead him straight to the heart and soul of philosophy. From there he discovered a clear view of the world through the fractured perspective of humor. Peterson developed the theoretical Laf-Graf humor analysis instrument-with the help of the mental giants at The Institute that bears his name-to guide the operator through any scenario that the human mind can misconceive. It systematically untangles laughable predicaments through the loopholes of circumstantial evidence. Laughter is a symptom of humor, but thanks to the Laf-Graf Model 1300, it is also a beacon by which one can navigate the obstacle course of life. The Peterson Institute of Arts a Science Research Laboratory and Gift Shop is factitiously located at 6464 Rhapsody Overdrive-Berzerkley, Michigan's most prestigious address for over 50 years. It's an art gallery, science laboratory, church, school, medical facility, lutherie, bus stop, gift shop, entertainment complex, and sports arena for mind games-a qthink tankq of higher learning where the only tuition is intuition.
