“THE PRACTICAL JOKE.”
Little Joey Bun,
He’s the chap for fun,
Sometimes he is really quite provoking.
He’ll always make you laugh,
He’s much too smart by half;
There never seems an end to all his joking.
Father Bun is old –
Joey Bun is bold,
Not a spark of fear in him remaining:
What’s his latest spree?
Well, just look and see.
I don’t think the picture needs explaining.

“Because,” said the face, “I am the Head of Tide Water, . .”

“I guess you can go on a bit farther, my man.”
“I intend to,” said Jan. “Why not?”
“Because,” said the face, “I am the Head of Tide Water, and it’s only small boats that can go by me. I turn all the rest back.”
“I see,” said Jan, “sort of a river-policeman.”
“No, a police-bouy,” said the Head of Tide Water, and laughed very loud because he had made a bad joke.
