Q. If women with big bosoms work at Hooters, where do one-legged women work?
A. Answer: IHop.

Every month, I tell a joke at the meetings of the Hobbyists, a social group of older men in the Ridgewood, NJ, area--after I report on the Investors Club and on ROMEO (Retired Older Men Eating Out), two clubs that I run. I'm proud that I have gained a reputation for telling really funny jokes.

But my inventory is growing bare. I keep track of the jokes I've told and the jokes I haven't told, and I have only about six jokes left. One of them--a killer joke--is, alas, full of curse words, one of them very strong, and bear in mind that I give my talks in a church. A little intimidating.
