DESCRIPTION: “We dare you to keep a straight face!
Little Willie saw some dynamite,
Couldn’t understand it quite.
Curiosity never pays.
It rained Willie seven days.
‘Twas in a restaurant they met,
Romeo and Juliet.
He had no cash to pay the debt,
So Romeo’d what Juli-et.
Teacher: In what battle did General Wolfe, hearing of victory, cry
‘I die happy’?
Student: ‘His last battle.’
What animal would be likely to eat a relative?
Give up? An anteater.
Dozens of sidesplitters! Enjoy them. Use them on your friends. We take no responsibility for what happens.”(from the back cover)
