    There were two misers wan time...

    There were two misers wan time and they were misers indeed. Wan of them invited his friend the other miser to his home wan day to have a talk with him. When the visitor came to the door he was let in by his friend and he brought him up to the fire place and shoved over a great big stone to him to sit down and when the other man was sitting down he let down his pants and sat down on his bare "bum". The other man was looking on at all this and he asked his friend why he let down his pants. "Oh" says the other "so that I won't wear the seat out of it" "Begor" says the other I'm wearing seats out of my pants all my life but I won't from this on. The longer you live the more you know.
