A nosey neighbour remonstrated with the woman in the adjoining
apartment. "Mrs. Smith, do you think it is right that a seventeen-

Clark, Lois, and Jimmy were striding down the streets of Metropolis
one sunny afternoon. As they passed a construction site, Lois noticed
a worker carrying a load of bricks up the ladder on his shoulder. She
stopped dead, looked hard at him; then turned to the others and said,
” Someone should write a song: 'Bricking Up is Hod to Do'." Jimmy
Olsen stopped dead in his tracks, slapped his thigh, and let loose a
series of guffaws that reverberated across the street. He suddenly
paused mid-laugh and looked at Clark, who stood there, stoic as ever.

recognizing that his slim chance to capture the Republican nomination
was shrinking, decided that he would announce his choice of a high-
profile running mate. A perfect complement to his ticket? - Perhaps a

Mr. Paul acquiesced to taking as his running mate Wilt's nephew. So
it was that Mr. Paul's campaign was reinvigorated just in time for
Super Tuesday. His bumper stickers can now be seen - "Ron Paul -
Stilt's kin." (William Stavinoha)
A rabbi, a minister, and a priest were playing poker when the police
raided the game. Turning to the priest, the lead police officer said,
"Father Murphy, were you gambling?" Turning his eyes to heaven, the
priest whispered, "Lord, forgive me for what I am about to do." To
the police officer, he then said, "No, officer; I was not gambling."
The officer then asked the minister, "Pastor Johnson, were you
gambling?" Again, after an appeal to heaven, the minister replied,
"No, officer; I was not gambling." Turning to the rabbi, the officer
again asked, "Rabbi Goldstein, were you gambling?" Shrugging his
shoulders, the rabbi replied, "With whom?"
