Amusement is in context. That seems imperfectly meta and self-referential, but to find something funny or entertaining relies entirely on perspective and circumstance. Enjoyment is found in the heart of the beholder. It’s personal. And the person creating the event, the statement, the idea, the passage will, like any artist with an eye, see what he or she can get away with. J’amuse? You muse.
