The Sign of the Big Cigar

Post by Karen on Thu 14 Mar - 9:47

THE SIGN OF THE BIG CIGAR.

At Brompton County-court Mr. Charles Grandy was summoned for non-payment of 2 pounds 7s. 7d.
The Judge: Can you prove the defendant's means?
Plaintiff's representative: Prove his means? Why he walks about that parish with an air as though the world is treating him well. He smokes big cigars and looks quite happy.
The Defendant: The cigars are samples. I'm an agent.
Plaintiff: He's just become a member of the Fulham Philanthropic Society, and paid a subscription.
The Judge: What was the amount of your subscription?
Defendant: 4s. 6d. for the year. I only joined it to oblige a friend.
The Judge: 10s. a month.
