I don't suppose it's really a joke, and it's not that subtle, but I've
always found it funny; it's one of Wolfe's little digs at the eggheads of
academe, from CASTLEVIEW (pp. 36-37). Lisa Solomon is talking about the
fireplace:

"Do you know, I read just today that open fires don't actually heat a
building? It seems they draw in more cold air than they warm; just think of
all those ignorant people who froze themselves to death, and never realized
it, for thousands of years."
