As I've been adding lcgft headings to the catalog, I've started to look at subject headings that look like genre headings.  One that came up recently was "American wit and humor"  What is the scope of that heading (and other similar headings, including "Wit and humor, Pictorial")?  I've seen it on Peanuts collections and books by stand-up comedians.  Is this correct, or is just for the study of comedy?
