Reference #72: The Elements of Style

"Interesting" is an unconvincing word which should not be used as a means of introduction. The same is true with "funny".

Don't proclaim a story of your telling to be funny or interesting; instead tell a story and let it speak for itself.

Strunk, White. The Elements of Style, 2000. (50)
