*  It is a solemn thought: dead, the noblest man's meat is inferior to pork. 

*  Be careful about reading health books-you might die of a misprint.

* When red-haired people are above a certain social grade their hair is auburn. 

* I didn't attend the funeral, but I sent a nice letter saying I approved of it.
