This ending seems designed the better to adapt the rather scurrilous story of Ehud to the framework interpretation as a story of Israel's deliverance from oppression. As some sort of a modern analogy, though on a very different scale, one need only recall how during the Second World War humorists presented dictators as ridiculous figures, a genre that remained popular for some time after their defeat, even when the full horrors perpetrated by them became known. With the minimum of adaptation a humorous narrative told to maintain morale is turned into a solemn warning on maintaining a right relationship with Yahweh.

This fact alone prevents the story from being read as a reflection of tribal or national history. 44 Besides Jacob his parents are to some extent the butt of humour: Isaac is gently sent up in the stolen blessing scene, and Rebekah's schemings are shown to fail of their intended object, but to lead to the comic twists of the plot. 24ff.

I am considering political history in comedy in order to challenge an interpretation which has much support among Classical scholars. Aristophanes' earliest surviving play is Acharnians, his third play, produced in 425. It is only for the later career of Perikles in the 440s that much scurrilous abuse is attested, with similar abuse in the period after Perikles, against the politicians Kleon, Hyperbolos, Peisander, Alkibiades, Kleophon and others. Whatever its origins, political abuse in comedy appears to have developed between 450 and 404.
