KORF'S JOKE

Korf has invented a new kind of joke:
The point comes only many hours after.
All listen to them with disdain and boredom.

But like the light that shineth in the darkness
They rouse you from your slumbers wildly gurgling,
Holding your sides and laughing like a drain.

Christian Morgenstern

W.C.Fields, on his deathbed, was seen to be reading The Bible. When asked what he was doing, he replied, "Looking for loopholes".

Harold Ross, possibly to James Thurber, interviewing for a position at The New Yorker: "...and don't think you'll be starting as a reporter. You'll begin as Managing Editor like everyone else".

The Dorothy Parker line listed in GUEST, Frankie's post was her response when asked to use the word "horticulture" in a sentence: "You can lead a horticulture but you can't make her think".

A lady remarked to James Thurber that his stories seemed even funnier in French than in English. He said, "Yes, I always seem to lose something in the original".

At first, I was hesitant to join The Mudcat Cafe. As Groucho Marx so aptly put it: "I would never belongto any club that would allow me as a member".

My favorite source of one-liners (and two-liners) is comedian Steven Wright. Examples:

"The sign in the restaurant said, 'Breakfast any time', so I said 'I'll have French toast during the Renaissance.'"

"Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before."

"I went to a general store. They wouldn't let me buy anything specifically."

There are dozens of web sites that list these. Use your search engine to find them.

Here's a few: You're so lazy, that if you woke up with nothing to do today, you'd go to bed with it only half done.

It's no fun to drink alone until you've had a few.

Good evening, ladies, gentlemen, and those of you who have had the operation

The early bird may get the worm but the second mouse gets the cheese.

I'm trying to look at things from your point of view, but I can't get my head that far up my ass.

And remember, if you are baroque, it just means that you are out of Monet.

I remember the first time I kissed a girl; we were seventeen. Seventeen? Yes. She was eight and I was nine, and that made us seventeen

I was married by a judge. I should have asked for a jury.

Marriage (Divorce) has allowed me to I work myself up from nothing to a state of extreme poverty.

On our second honeymoon my wife and I went back to the hotel where we spent our wedding night. Only this time, I stayed in the bathroom and cried.

The drummer's girl friend had long blonde hair. It was a foot long and grew out of her left nostril. She caught a cold and almost flogged herself to death.

I don't like to drink...but it's the only way I can get it down.

Cheers, Fortunato

She was so ugly she coudn't sneak up on a stump.

They hit him with the ugly stick, and they used the whole tree.

She ain't wrapped too tight.

Don't get your panties in a wad. (Other regions' variants, knickers in a twist, etc.)

From my mother: When they were handing out brains, she thought they said trains, so she asked for a slow one. (There are hundreds of variants)

It is not troll the ancient yuletide carol, but troll the ancient. If I went trolling for Carol, my wife would have my head on a platter a'la John the Baptist! And I have paid my toll thank you very much!

Death is natures way of telling you to slow down. More for hecklers. (I've played some tough places)

I'm trying to imagine you with a personality. You must use that personality for birth control. If I throw a stick, Will you leave? I like you. You remind me of when I was young and stupid. I see you've set aside this special time to humiliate yourself in public. And lastly: I'm already visualizing the duct tape over your mouth.

Hermione Gingold I believe was being upstaged by another actress and apparently has (in the play) to place her empty champagne glass on the table- she put a spot of gum underneath the glass and put the glass overhanging the edge of the table- for the rest of the play all eyes were on the glass waiting for it to fall! Wasn't she also the woman that met a famous writer who had used the word "fudge" in his book as a swear word and said to him "So you are the young man that can't spell fuck"? Eric

Fulcrum. troll and art are NOT the same person .Neither are troll and Jeffpee the same,Amos. troll is troll . When he was born the doctor took a look and slapped his mother. troll is also the alter ego of John, a mild mannered postal worker in sunny Florida. John would never make bad jokes and especially not in a public forum. But troll would. Actually, John is retired from the PO. He was starting to worry them. He smiled a lot. They thought he was up to something. He wasn't. He had merely gotten the joke.

Here (in Rutland County, VT) we have Lake Bomoseen, in which lies Neshobe Island. Wolcott used to own it, and the whole Round Table vacationed there. One story is that Dorothy Parker arrived with no luggage except a large hat box, containing a large sun hat, which was her costume for the weekend.

The other legend is that Harpo Marx took it upon himself to protect the group from trespassers - people who landed boats on the island to see what was going on. He did this by leaping out of the bushes and running at them, naked and howling abuse.

There's a song there. Someday I'll get it written.

Dorothy Parker, upon the death of her husband, was asked by some poor woman, "Is there anything I can get you?" She replied, "Another man." The woman was appalled (she must not have known Dorothy Parker) and showed her displeasure to which Parker responded, "OK then, get me a ham sandwich."

Geeziz, I would have given anything to have been a fly on the wall at the Algonquinn Round Table. Those people had sarcastic wit down to a science. Woolcott, Parker, and of course, the quickest wit that may ever have lived, George Kaufman.

He was at a dinner party with another boring and chatty female guest. When she paused (briefly) in her ramblings, Kaufman asked, "Madam, do you have any UN-expressed thoughts?" Even as a child he had it. Someone he disliked, a relative I believe, was coming for a visit and his mother said (as all parents do), "It wouldn't hurt to be nice to her." George responded, "Well, that would depend upon your threshold of pain."
