The Photographer

A version of this story has been attributed to Bennett Cerf. A version can also be found in Himie Koshevoy’s “Treasure Jest of Best Puns”.

A distant cousin of Syngman Rhee from Korea got a job as a photographer for Life Magazine. His work was excellent and he soon became one of their top stars. One day he failed to show up for work. A week went by and he still did not show. Fellow workers phoned his hotel and checked all possible points where he could be visiting. Finally, they organized a posse and began combing the city block by block. One searcher entered a bar in the slinky part of town, and there, on a stool, was his man.

Overcome with joy and relief, the searcher rushed up and exclaimed, “Ah, sweet Mr. Rhee, of Life, at last I found you.”
