Smile of the Day

Life is getting much too serious, yes? Who doesn't need a daily smile?

All things in their proper time

Three Americans were telling anecdotes to ilĀ­lustrate the English dearth of humour, when they saw approaching a representative of that nation. It was agreed that the Englishman should then and there be put to the test. So one of the Americans stopped him and narrated a side-splitting yarn. The Englishman received the climax with an impasĀ­sive face. The American, delighted, cried, "Cheer up, old man, you will laugh at that next summer."

"No," said the Briton gravely, "I think not."

"Why not?"

"Because I laughed at that last summer."
