|Joke (See Jesting)|
| Jokes are the cayenne of conversation, and the salt of life.|
| The next best thing to a very good joke is a very bad one.|
J. C. Hare.
| And gentle Dullness ever loves a joke.|
| It requires a surgical operation to get a joke well into a Scotch understanding.|
| Be not affronted at a joke. If one throw salt at thee, thou wilt receive no harm, unless thou art raw.|
