WILLIE–“Paw, what is the middle class?” PAW–“The middle class consists of people who are not poor enough to accept charity and not rich enough to donate anything.”

PROFESSOR–“Now, Mr. Jones, assuming you were called to attend a patient who had swallowed a coin, what would be your method of procedure?” YOUNG MEDICO–“I’d send for a preacher, sir. They’ll get money out of anyone.”
