Spanish Humor

Robert Southey (1774-1843), Letters Written During a Short Residence in Spain and Portugal (Bristol: Bulgin and Rosser, 1797), pp. 10-11:
The Comedy, of course, was very dull to one who could not understand it. I was told that it contained some wit, and more obscenity; but the only comprehensible joke to me, was "Ah!" said in a loud voice by one man, and "Oh!" replied, equally loud by another, to the great amusement of the audience.
