Judge: You say it was an accident that you shot your wife? Defendant: Yes, Your Honour. She got in front of my mother-in-law just as I pulled the trigger. An eighty-year-old man with young ideas had married a girl of twenty-two years, and more than anything else in the world, he wanted a son. He went to his doctor and explained the situation. “I am sorry,” said the doctor. “You may be heir-minded, but you’re not heir-conditioned.” Household Humour is another presentation of Judson K. Cornelius following right in the steps of his overwhelmingly popular Church Humour, Campus Humour and Literary Humour. This anthology with all its hilarity offers the reader many hours of enjoyment and relaxation. As you read it, remember the words of a famous barb: “Laughter is the shortest distance between two people.”
