Why did the chicken cross the road?
Was it to get to the other side of a racist joke?
Why didn’t the watermelon cross the road
instead? It was having a smashing time!
Corks were burnt, shoe polish was placed
on faces – wasn’t that hilarious enough for ya?
Tell us another one: The master bedroom
is no laughing matter. The barrel of laughs
out back on the farm where you bury your
head and cry out your shame is not for today’s

Al Jolson’s tear when he sang Mammy. They
say it was real. Genuine emotion. That makes
it all okay. Apparently. That means he was the
right man for the job. End of discussion.
