Glendora Vegeterian Club

Hey, folks, will you please take a piece of paper and write on it: “What is my conscience telling me to do?” Then on the other side of the paper please write: “What am I doing that my conscience doesn’t want me to do?” Now keep this to yourself. Don’t  put it on the front page of the New York Times.


1. When Ellen bought a dress for $450, the clerk guaranteed a fit, and sure enough, her husband had one.

2. The auctioneer said, “Sold to the woman whose husband has his hand over her mouth!”

3. The man said he knows his wife will live longer than he will because she has a whole closet of clothes she wouldn’t be caught dead in.

4. Fred said his wife should go into earthquake research. She is the best fault finder he knows.

5. Benny and his wife had words, but Benny didn’t get a chance to use his.

6. Husband: You’ve overdrawn the account.

    Wife: No, you under-deposited.
