“Interviewer: “So Frank, you have long hair. Does that make you a woman?” Frank Zappa: “You have a wooden leg. Does that make you a table?”


The Customs Department has been in
formed of a peculiar case of opium seizure
in Western Australia. The police heard
that a Chinaman names John Francis
Watson had gone to Perth from the gold
fields for opium, and on his return they
met him. He blandly protested against
the search. He emptied out his port
manteau, took off his clothes and boots,
and told the police they would certainly
find no smuggled goods in his possession.
But the police insisted on going further
still, and took from the Chinaman the
wooden leg he was wearing. Here, stuffed
in the calf and thigh, was found a large
quantity of the drug. The offender was
sent to gaol for four months and a reward
of £5 was distributed amongst those who
made the discovery.,
All that one gains by falsehood is, not
to be believed when he speaks the truth.
In scandal, as in robbery, the receiver
is always as bad as the thief.—Chester
