What has a neck and body but nothing else?
A bottle.

Which ship do we all like to avoid?
What is that which never asks questions yet requires many answers?
The door-bell.
Why should a hen be never untidy?
Because she carries a comb with her.
How can you cure a slow horse?
Tie him to a post and make him fast.
When is a penny like a hermit?
When it is a loan.
Why should Ireland soon be rich?
Because its capital is Dublin.
When should you lose your temper?
When it is a bad one.
What are the most unsociable things in the world?
Milestones, you never see two together.
Why is a miser like a man with a bad memory.
He is always forgetting.
When is a ship sentimental?
When it hugs the shore.
What has a face and no head?
A clock.
What has a head and no face?
A match.
As white as snow, as green as grass, as red as blood, and as black as ink?
A damson.
Why does a cow look over the ditch?
Because she cannot look under it.
