Tall tales, naughty narratives and silly spoofs are all part of that hitherto unacknowledged literary genre, the after-dinner joke. Gathered together in this collection are the World’s Best specimens of this much-practised bu rarely excelled-at art form.
The old man was dying an dhe called his wife and family to his bedside. There were four sons – three fine big boys and a little one. He said to his wife in a weak voice, ‘Don’t lie to me now – I want to know the truth. The little one – is he really mine?’ ‘Oh, yes, dear,’ said his wife. ‘He really is, I give you my word of honour.’ The old man smiled and slipped peacefully away. With a sigh of relief, the widow muttered, ‘Thank God he didn’t ask me about the other three!’
Containing the creme de la creme of the joke world, The World’s Best After-Dinner Jokes is the perfect accompaniment to any meal.
