Laugh a little
A Little Bit Over the Top
Harry and Alf are bragging with each other about their recent fishing expeditions.
"Harry says, "I caught a fish so huge, it must have weighed 50 lbs!"
"That's nothing," scoffs Alf, "I caught an antique lamp. It had a date of 1837 engraved on it: the date when Queen Victoria came to the throne. And you know what? The lamp was still lit!"
Harry stared at his friend incredulously and then replied, slowly, "Listen Alf, I'll tell you what, we must stop this boasting – so how's this for a compromise? I will say my fish weighed only 5 lbs and you ... well, you put your light out!"
