I wish my brother-in-law would learn a trade, so we’d know what kind of work he was out of.”   —   Henny Youngman

(“Take my wife . . . please!”  The King of the One-Liners!  Henny was a very funny comedian and a tireless performer.  His career lasted well over 70 years!  One of the things that always cracked me up was simply his name.  Of course, Henny itself is pretty unusual, but it was his last name, Youngman, that always struck me funny.  He was already 51 years old, by the time I was born, and he was probably 62 before I really knew who he was.  My first recollection of him was, in all likelihood, from Rowan and Martin‘s Laugh-In.  I might have seen him on The Merv Griffin Show, or The Mike Douglas Show, before then, but definitely on Laugh-In!  So, to a 10 year old kid, how is this old geezer a young man???  But of course, now I’m well into my 50s, and I don’t consider myself an old man!  But, that just shows how perspectives tend to change.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

I just played a horse yesterday that was so slow the jockey kept a diary of the trip.”   —   Henny Youngman

(Funny and clean!  I don’t have a problem with the occasional F-bomb and assorted cursing.  Many great comedians play blue.  But, there’s a whole world of funny out there that can get by without it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

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

(I guess if you look at it from the standpoint of the origins of the word he’s right!  Holiday comes from holy day.  Of course, there are plenty of secular “holidays” these days, but it’s still amusing.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Zemanta was only giving me Getty owned pics of Henny, so all I can show you is this violin.      YUR

If you’re going to do something tonight that you’ll be sorry for tomorrow morning, sleep late.”   —   Henny Youngman

(If only it were that simple!  Actually, if that night involves imbibing . . . and you don’t have to get up for work . . .   Hey, why not?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Have I got a mother-in-law — she’s so neat she puts paper under the cuckoo clock.”   —   Henny Youngman

(A little tricky.  I thought I might have made a mistake when I started writing out the Os.  Not a lot of words end in OO.  But, it all came together to form the King of the One Liners funny quote.  All that’s missing is a rimshot!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

When I told my doctor I couldn’t afford an operation, he offered to touch up my x-rays.”   —   Henny Youngman

(Patient:  Hey, Doc.  It hurts when I do this.  Doctor:  Then don’t do that.  I think that was another of Henny’s.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
