Queen Elizabeth I

This is a pun by Ralph D. Jeffords. Thank you, Sir.

Write of Passage

This is an original by “Ralph D. Jeffords” who says, “I really enjoy your shaggy dog archive. My dad taught me an appreciation for this form of humor as a kid growing up, and we both still enjoy these groaners. Here is one to add to your collection (the part about the Tockey relatives is actually true).
