When I was a kid, I loved joke and riddle books. I would check everyone of them out of the school library as well as the public one.
I would read them end to end, usually in one sitting, and couldn’t wait for more. However, there were always a few (they were REALLY old ones) that didn’t make any sense at the time. Here’s two:
A man on the street asks a passerby:
“Excuse me, sir, how do you get to Carnegie Hall?”
Man: “Practice, man, practice”
As a kid growing in the southeast, I didn’t know what Carnegie Hall was!
Sign on a nuclear scientist’s office door:
How the heck is an 8-year-old supposed to know anything about nuclear power?
Of course, I also thought that TBA in the TV Guide listings was the name of a show!! (It was definitely popular. (ha, ha)
