I have an extensive “Gag File” which I have collected over a couple decades. It’s a conglomeration of jokes, funny titles, puns, nicely turned phrases, sight gags, and philosophical observations. I store this collection on several computer files.

However,  I have been parking jokes in my brain since I was a kid. And I had proofHickety_Dickety_Dock_2_-_WW_Denslow_-_Project_Gutenberg_etext_18546.jpg of that today when I scanned an old BOYS’ LIFE magazine from June 1961. I spotted two gags from the Joke Page that I distinctly recall memorizing at the ripe old age of 11. Here are those comedic gems.

Hickory dickory dock. Three mice ran up the clock. The clock struck one… The rest escaped with minor injuries.

Bill: Have you lived here all your life? / Will: Not yet.

Feel free to use them in your next script!  🙂
