Description

AS HEARD IN THE SMOKER
Jew Murphy : "What is a gollywhopper?"
Sheehan : "A gollywhopper, according to the Encyclopedia Bullconica, is a species
of humdinger, descendant of the whangdiodle and cousin of an icthyosaurus."
AH, ALSENE, YOU HAVE IT!
Question : If it takes an eight months old woodpecker with a rubber bill six months
to peck through a cypress log big enough to make 300 shingles, how long would it take
a six months old grasshopper with a corkscrew leg to kick the seeds out of a dill-
pickle?
Alsene : "Our hired man, Gus, says that he was told by Jake, the butcher, that an
Alabama black man had got a straight tip from the jockey's bible that it would take
just as long for a grasshopper to do the trick you mention as it would take a two-
stripe member of the 27th Division to pick off 3,000,000 cooties with a pair of 16-
ounce boxing gloves."
Murderers appear to me to be happy-go-lucky fellows—they
take life so easily.
A MODEL HUSBAND
There is a man who never drinks, nor chews, nor smokes, nor
swears ;
Who never gambles, never flirts, and shuns all sinful snares.
He's paralyzed.
