Overheard at Ye Olde Celebrity Tavern
Sally tacked up a Halloween spider web, and conversation started suddenly:
Tarzan: Boy, I hated spider webs!
Chimp: Ha! You’d slap at your face trying to get them off, then thump your chest, and howl.
J. Edgar Hoover: We used them to torture spies. And Chimp, where is your security clearance to be here?
Sir Walter Scott: Hoover… Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive.
Freud: It’s called araneophobia; deception is pathological lying.
Gore: I invented it.
Sally: No, the web.
“Just have another drink, Al, and shut up!” They all shouted.
