old gentleman, who was out walking one afternoon, noticed a number of
small boys who were playing in the street. Stopping to watch them at
their play, he inquired of one little fellow who was looking very
downhearted, what kind of a game they were playing.
"Oh, just playing auto," the boy
Then, seeing that the old gentleman was really
interested in the game, the youngster started to explain.
"Now, that kid running by me is a Packard
and that one right behind him is an Overland. See?"
"Why don't they let you play with
them?" asked the kindly old gentleman.
"Why, I'm playing, but I'm supposed to be so
small they don't notice me."
"What kind of an auto are you?"
"Oh, I ain't an auto; I'm just a Ford."
Mr. D_____ entered a restaurant and looking over the menu card, told the
man to bring him a dish of soup.
As the waiter walked away, Mr. D_____ called after him,
"Hey, I did not know you had frog's legs."
The waiter quickly turned and replied, "I
haven't; I got them in that shape by riding in a Ford."
