Smile A While


CAPE ARGUS - 1939, December 16
Cabbages & Kings – By THE WALRUS
COLD
“I spent last summer in a very pretty city in Switzerland.”
“Berne?”
“No, I almost froze.”

RIGHT OF FREE SPEECH
In some countries nowadays every man has the right of free speech so long as he doesn’t mind being shot.


TAKING PRECAUTIONS
Mother: “Johnny, you must not play the piano when daddy is sleeping.”
Johnny: “But, Mommy, I have gloves on.”

PROVES IT
Policeman (to Christmas reveler trying to fit a key in lamp post):
“I don’t think there’s anyone home there to-night.”
“Mush be. There’ish a light upstairsh.”

SHOULD DO
“I’ve been trying to think of a word for two weeks.”
“What about fortnight?”
