Pretty Good Jokes

Old Folk Jokes
The 1955 class of Skull and Bones -- Yale's oldest and arguably most secretive senior society -- were having a reunion at Deer Island, the society's private island. It was a beautiful day, and they were all men, so they felt no compunction about sitting around in the nude.

So it was that two Bonesmen sat next to each other, enjoying the sun and the outdoors and the intellectual conversation.

"I say," says one to the other. "Have you read Marx?"

"Oh yes," said the other, slowly nodding. "But listen, don't you worry about it. It's just these wicker chairs."

—Sarah Morice-Brubaker, Tulsa, Oklahoma
