I've lived in the same apartment now for ten years. Old 1920s structure with lots of character, odd elderly neighbors, and drafty windows. When I first moved into here I noticed in the bathroom that there was this strange little hook that was mounted right across from the toilet.
It really was useless for hanging anything on, but I thought maybe it was for a wash cloth. The other thing was for a hook it was decidedly dick-like. Then at a used book store I found a book called "More Jokes for the John".
Finally I realized the purpose of the hook. For almost ten years this book has been hanging there. I'm sure it's gotten more attention than anything else in my home. I mean if you're visiting and nature calls you can't miss it. More Jokes for the John has gotten me through many a hangover morning, or bout with food poisoning from Mexican food. It's a great bathroom read because the jokes are so inane that they seem fresh each time I read them because I've completely forgotten them from the last time.
Indicative of the time it was published the jokes are sexist, sexy, and just plain stupid. Just the thing to take your mind off of your business. The subjects of the jokes mainly run in a few categories: Horny men trying to trick a woman into having sex; horny women trying to have sex, prostitutes talking about sex, big breasts, homosexuals, and how wives are all shrews.
One of the jokes that has stumped people for years is this one:
"Two little worms were crawling in the garden, one of them stopped and the other crawled right on. "
That's it... Any interpretation as to why this is a joke would be most welcome. I've had suggestions that the punchline was left out, but I don't think so.
Anyway... for your browsing pleasure here are some of the cartoons from this book.
More to come...
