Justice David J. Brewer was asked not long ago by a man.
"Will you please tell me, sir, what is the extreme penalty for bigamy?"
Justice Brewer smiled and answered:
SHE—"And so you are going to be my son-in-law?"
HE—"By Jove! I hadn't thought of that."
WAITER—"Have another glass, sir?"
HUSBAND (to his wife)—"Shall I have another glass, Henrietta?"
WIFE (to her mother)—"Shall he have another, mother?"
A blackmailer wrote the following to a wealthy business man: "Send me $5,000 or I will abduct your mother-in-law."
To which the business man replied: "Sorry I am short of funds, but your proposition interests me."
An undertaker telegraphed to a man that his mother-in-law had died and asked whether he should bury, embalm or cremate her. The man replied, "All three, take no chances."
