One of the witticisms of Lord Russel of Killowen was his answer to a question from a distinguished counsel who asked what the heaviest penalty for bigamy was.

Two mothers-in-law, said Russel promptly.

Grand Canyon!

When Marshal Foch visited the Grand Canyon, Colonel John R.White, who spoke French fluently, hung breathlessly on Marshall’s words as he turned to him after a long scrutiny of the depths below.

Now, thought the colonel, I shall hear something worthy of passing along to my children and my grand children.

Observed the Marshal, What a beautiful place to drop one’s mother in law!

Cato, the Elder!

Roman Senator Cato, the Elder (243 BCE) , having buried his wife married a young woman. His son came and to him and said,

Sir, in what have I offended that you have brought a step-mother in to your house?

Nay, son, answered the old man,

Quite the contrary; you please me so well that I should be glad to have more such.

Loyalty is too dangerous!

Loyalty sometimes proves embarrassing. A case in point is that of the wife whose husband was unusually late, who wired to five of his friends,

Jack not home. Is he spending night with you?

The unfortunate Jack arrived home shortly afterwards, and was followed by five telegrams all saying YES!

No sympathy is needed!

I have no sympathy, bellowed the judge, for a man who beats his wife.

That is right your Honor, said the policeman who stood beside the culprit ,

Any man who can beat his wife don’t need Sympathy.

Impotent!

A man, being suspected of impotency, met a friend one day, who had railed him on it, to whom he said,

My good Sir, for all your wit, my wife was yesterday brought to bed.

What of that, said his friend, nobody ever suspected your wife.

Hen pecked Husbands!

Well, said Lincoln, on a certain occasion, I feel about that a good deal as a man whom I will call Jones whom I once knew, did about his wife. He was one, and had the reputation of being badly hen pecked. At last one day his wife was seen switching him out of the house. A day or two after, a man met him in the street and said,

Jone, I have always stood up for you, as you know; but I am not going to do it any longer. Any man who stood quietly and take a switching from his wife deserves to be horseworshipped.

Jones looked up with a wink, patting his friend on the back.

Now, don’t, said he; why it didn’t hurt me any: and you have no idea what a power of good it did Sarah Ann!
