Never too late

We've created this area in the hope of seeing material ranging from some well-told (or well retold) jokes to original writing with a humorous slant, or anything else that might appeal to the kind of person who enjoys playing with words more than people. That probably means someone like yourself. N.B. -- Postings preceded by ** contain some sexual or risqué content. (Makes them easier to find.)

Mrs Hatcher looked her lawyer squarely in the eye. She cleared her throat, took a deep breath, and paused.

Then with a firm voice she said, "We decided to wait until all the children were dead."
