Thank you Karson. LOL

Here’s some more one liners by Henny Youngman.

I just happened on them this morning.

A doctor gave a man six months to live. The man couldn’t pay his bill, so he gave him another six months.
Henny Youngman

A Jewish woman had two chickens. One got sick, so the woman made chicken soup out of the other one to help the sick one get well.
Henny Youngman

A self-taught man usually has a poor teacher and a worse student.
Henny Youngman

Do you know what it means to come home at night to a woman who’ll give you a little love, a little affection, a little tenderness? It means you’re in the wrong house, that’s what it means.
Henny Youngman

How to drive a guy crazy: send him a telegram and on the top put ‘page 2.’
Henny Youngman

I know a man who doesn’t pay to have his trash taken out. How does he get rid of his trash? He gift wraps it, and puts in into an unlocked car.
Henny Youngman

I once wanted to become an atheist, but I gave up – they have no holidays.
Henny Youngman

I played a great horse yesterday! It took seven horses to beat him.
Henny Youngman

I played a lot of tough clubs in my time. Once a guy in one of those clubs wanted to bet me $10 that I was dead. I was afraid to bet.
Henny Youngman

I take my wife everywhere, but she keeps finding her way back.
Henny Youngman

I told the doctor I broke my leg in two places. He told me to quit going to those places.
Henny Youngman

I’ve been in love with the same woman for forty-one years. If my wife finds out, she’ll kill me.
Henny Youngman

I’ve got all the money I’ll ever need, if I die by four o’clock.
Henny Youngman

If at first you don’t succeed… so much for skydiving.

Just got back from a pleasure trip: I took my mother-in-law to the airport.
Henny Youngman

My brother was a lifeguard in a car wash.
Henny Youngman

My dad was the town drunk. Most of the time that’s not so bad; but New York City?
Henny Youngman

My grandmother is over eighty and still doesn’t need glasses. Drinks right out of the bottle.
Henny Youngman

My other brother-in-law died. He was a karate expert, then joined the army. The first time he saluted, he killed himself.
Henny Youngman

My son complains about headaches. I tell him all the time, when you get out of bed, it’s feet first!

My wife dresses to kill. She cooks the same way.

She has a wash and wear bridal gown.
Henny Youngman

She’s a big-hearted girl with hips to match.
Henny Youngman

She’s been married so many times she has rice marks on her face.
Henny Youngman

Some people ask the secret of our long marriage. We take time to go to a restaurant two times a week. A little candlelight, dinner, soft music and dancing. She goes Tuesdays, I go Fridays.

Take my wife… Please!
Henny Youngman

That was the first time I saw a horse start from a kneeling position!

Thanks, Karson. My avitar (Groucho Marx) speaks:

A hospital bed is a parked taxi with the meter running.

A man’s only as old as the woman he feels.

A woman is an occasional pleasure but a cigar is always a smoke.

Alimony is like buying hay for a dead horse.

All people are born alike – except Republicans and Democrats.

Anyone who says he can see through women is missing a lot.

Before I speak, I have something important to say.

Behind every successful man is a woman, behind her is his wife.

Either he’s dead or my watch has stopped.

Getting older is no problem. You just have to live long enough.

Go, and never darken my towels again.

Humor is reason gone mad.

I didn’t like the play, but then I saw it under adverse conditions – the curtain was up.

I don’t care to belong to a club that accepts people like me as members.

I have had a perfectly wonderful evening, but this wasn’t it.

I intend to live forever, or die trying.

I must confess, I was born at a very early age.

I never forget a face, but in your case I’ll be glad to make an exception.

I remember the first time I had sex – I kept the receipt.

I was married by a judge. I should have asked for a jury.

I worked my way up from nothing to a state of extreme poverty.

I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.

I’m not feeling very well – I need a doctor immediately. Ring the nearest golf course.

I’ve got the brain of a four year old. I’ll bet he was glad to be rid of it.

I’ve had a perfectly wonderful evening. But this wasn’t it.

If I held you any closer I would be on the other side of you.

If you’ve heard this story before, don’t stop me, because I’d like to hear it again.

In Hollywood, brides keep the bouquets and throw away the groom.

It isn’t necessary to have relatives in Kansas City in order to be unhappy.

Man does not control his own fate. The women in his life do that for him.

Marriage is a wonderful institution, but who wants to live in an institution?

Marry me and I’ll never look at another horse!

Military intelligence is a contradiction in terms.

My favourite poem is the one that starts ‘Thirty days hath September’ because it actually tells you something.

My mother loved children – she would have given anything if I had been one.

Next time I see you, remind me not to talk to you.

No man goes before his time – unless the boss leaves early.

One morning I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got into my pajamas I’ll never know.

Outside of a dog, a book is a man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read.

Politics doesn’t make strange bedfellows – marriage does.

Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

There’s one way to find out if a man is honest – ask him. If he says, “Yes,” you know he is a crook.

Those are my principles, and if you don’t like them… well, I have others.

Who are you going to believe, me or your own eyes?

Whoever named it necking was a poor judge of anatomy.

Why should I care about posterity? What’s posterity ever done for me?

Why, I’d horse-whip you if I had a horse.

Wives are people who feel they don’t dance enough.

Women should be obscene and not heard.
