If they ever come up with a swashbuckling School, I think one of
the courses should be Laughing, Then Jumping Off Something.

When you're riding in a time machine way far into the future,
don't stick your elbow out the window, or it'll turn into a

It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at
that man.

At first I thought, if I were Superman, a perfect secret
identity would be "Clark Kent, Dentist," because you could save
money on tooth X-rays. But then I thought, if a patient said,
"How's my back tooth?" and you just looked at it with your X-ray
vision and said, "Oh it's okay," then the patient would probably
say, "Aren't you going to take an X-ray, stupid?" and you'd say,
"No way! Get outta here," and then he probably wouldn't even pay
his bill.

One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going

to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to
an old burned-out warehouse. "Oh, no," I said. "Disneyland burned

some smart-aleck cowboy said something like "Hey, look. He's
carrying a soldering iron!" and started laughing, and everybody

soldering iron. The soldering iron of justice." Then everybody
would get real quiet and ashamed, because they had made fun of the
soldering iron of justice, and I could probably hit them up for a
free drink.

I bet when the Neanderthal kids would make a snowman, someone
would always end up saying, "Don't forget the thick, heavy brows."
Then they would all get embarrassed because they remembered they

Fear can sometimes be a useful emotion. For instance, let's say
you're an astronaut on the moon and you fear that your partner has
been turned into Dracula. The next time he goes out for the moon
pieces, wham!, you just slam the door behind him and blast off. He
might call you on the radio and say he's not Dracula, but you just
say, "Think again, bat man."
