When there are two clearly contradictory rule statements, how do you choose which is correct and which is not?
The post-apocalyptic car racing game Gaslands has an excellent rule: the "Rule of Carnage". Simply stated it says that if there is ever any ambiguity about what to do, pick the option that results in the most carnage. It's an excellent principle.

You could also apply the same concept to a "rule of comedy", ie: do whatever is funniest.
