Featured Humor by Henny Youngman

When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading.

Henny Youngman

Hailed as the "the king of the one-liners," for his rapid-fire style, Henny Youngman was one of America’s most famous stand-up comedians. Also a trained violinist, his father wanted him to be a virtuoso, but another comedian once quipped, "Henny's the only guy who, when he opens his violin case, the audience hopes he's got a machine gun in there." Among his most famous lines were "I was so ugly when I was born, the doctor slapped my mother," and "Take my wife -- please!" When the New York Telephone Co. started its Dial-a-Joke line in 1974, over three million people called in a month to hear 30 seconds of Youngman's material—the most ever for a comedian.

my dear senor,
Youngman is also my "favoritest". My lord and master, if you will. Wala nag papalit sa kanya, in my book.
P.S. abuso naman sa ganda ang template mo. Nginatngat ng inggit ang puso ko. Butas-butas na ngayon waaaah!

Thank you, Locamama. I owe it all to Tet of penovate and Jeff of The Dubai Chronicles. Mga talented na mga bata at madali pang mga kausap. I'm very proud them, as well as for their talents in design and graphic arts. Talagang mga kabataang Pinoy na mapagmamalaki natin.
