What has a neck and body but nothing else?
Hardship.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.
