 "What about the sarcophagus" said Martin.

"Now listen, Martin, don't get accustomed to the idea that we will find a sarcophagus every day."

"But we haven't found a single one . . ."

"That proves how rare they are" concludes Athanagore.

translated  from L'Automne à Pékin by Boris Vian (1947)




A man told his friend that he had visited a fortuneteller the other day. "But you don't believe that nonsense, I hope?" his friend replied. "No, of course not, but they say that it also works if you don't believe in it."


Two Hunters

Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses. He doesn't seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed. The other guy whips out his phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps, "I think my friend is dead! What can I do?" The operator says, "Calm down. I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead." There is a silence; then a gun shot is heard. Back on the phone, the guy says, "OK, now what?"                                       based on a 1951 Goon Show sketch by Spike Milligan
