by Samuel Sterling Give me a message to give to someone and it is likely that I will forget it; but give me a good clean joke and it is not likely that I will forget. Ever since my childhood I have had, not only a great liking for jokes and puzzles, but also a tenacious memory for them. Although the jokes and puzzles contained in this book did not originate with this writer they, nonetheless have brought much pleasure to me that I could not help but share them in this format. Many of them have been altered to fit different situations, or for a wider cross-section of the readers to have an appreciation of them. The sources of these Jokes and Puzzles vary, starting with my late father, Stanley Sterling, who was an avid storyteller. Others I have picked up over the years from friends, schools, at concerts, weddings and other settings. I have committed most of them to memory and have been able to use them whenever I am the emcee at a concert, weddings or just entertaining friends. It is my hope that Jokes and Puzzles will bring happiness, laughter and inspiration to its readers. Samuel Sterling (2004, paperback, 72 pages) Availability: Usually ships in 2-3 business days.
