It's Funny If You're Austrian

I find it hilarious that the author of some of the most rootin'-tootin' Western short stories in the old pulp magazines found here was someone who used the nom de plume of "Hapsburg Liebe."

I get the translation, but I hesitate to ask why it's funny, given the old saw, "If you have to explain it..."

Of course, 80% of what I think is hilarious flies right over people's heads, so I totally grok the sensation.

I've never heard that the Hapsburgs were particularly lieblich!
