Joke 205

15 Oct

A teacher asked little Johnny if he could count from one to ten.

“Yes! Of course! My Pop taught me…even more than ten.”

“Good; let’s see…what comes after three?”


“What comes after six?”


“Very good,” said the teacher. “Your Pop did a good job. Now…what comes after…let’s say, ten?”

“A jack.”

There’s many a true word spoken in jest…our Dad used to keep us up playing cards on school nights; mostly to avoid our Mum, I’m guessing.  I play a mean game of whist and I never met a card game that didn’t remind me of Dad.  With a smile.

    Many a true word spoken in jest…


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
