Ah.. Yeah. Now I see where children's joke books come from.

Meh.

Ok, some of those are pretty clever.


If William Penn's aunts kept a pastry shop, what would be the prices of their pies? The pie-rates of Penn's Aunts.


WIFE: "You loved me before we were married!"
HUSBAND: "Well, now it's your turn!"

Why should the number 288 never be mentioned in company? Because it is two gross.

Kate Beaton has the best Victorian humor if you ask me. Although it's more jokes about Victorians than actual humor from the Victorian era.

I agree, for literature/history humor, she's absolute gold.

Those Victorian era jokes, however, makes me wonder how civilization got out of that time period still in-tact.

Is it correct to speak of a sick lawyer as an ill legal man?

I see that the quality of puns has not risen in the last century.

Noticed this one near the bottom:

SERVANT: "Ma'am, your husband has eloped with the cook!"
WIFE: "Good! Now I can have the maid to myself, once in a while."

I laughed at a good number of those.

What is the difference between a tube and a foolish Dutchman? One is a hollow cylinder and the other a silly Hollander.

I've been telling that joke for years, whenever some hollow cylindrical object is relevant to the conversation, and putting "a Dutch comedian" at the other end. I did not know it was of Victorian vintage.
