Glendora Vegeterian Club

Good news, everybody! The bulletin for Hudson Valley Community College is out, and this summer they are offering a course in vegan cooking. Hooray! And there is further joy. Also being offered this summer is a course in vegan baking. Let’s go!

 Here’s how it goes, folks. You do what your conscience tells you to do. If your conscience tells you not to do it, don’t do it. This means you will be without guilt; and since you are without guilt, you will be without fear. You are being good. You have nothing to fear. You are impervious to sickness and sin.


1. Why do people laugh up their sleeves? That’s where their funny bone is.

2. I started out in TV 65 years ago with a kids’ show. Why? Because I wanted to start out small.

3. The farmer planted his potatoes with onions so he never had to water them. The onions would make the potatoes’ eyes water.

4. The country boy was in New York for the first time. He crossed the street when the sign said Don’t Walk. The policeman said, “You’re not supposed to cross the street when the sign says Don’t Walk. The boy said, “I’m sorry. I thought it was an ad for the bus company.

5. A counterfeiter went into a small store and said, “Will you cash this $18 bill?”

“Sure,” the owner said. “What do you want, two 9s or three 6s?”
