by Joseph Menkes

Finding humor in life is not hard, as evidenced by There Is Something Funny about Joe, a pithy collection of clever rhyming poems and sayings from the talented mind of Joseph Menkes.

For example, did you ever have a bad meal? Well, according to Mr. Menkes, “If the meal ain’t edible, the cook ain’t credible.” In the same vein, “A baker’s humor may be more rye than wry,” and “I eat wrinkled prunes so I won’t become a wrinkled old prune.”

He has also found the long-lost sayings of Confusions, Confucius’s younger brother: “He who keeps money in mattress should not smoke in bed,” and “A lawyer’s brief is seldom brief,” as well as “I am always right with hindsight.”

It is said laughter is the best medicine, and since he’s still going strong at eighty-seven years of age, then Mr. Menkes has found the Fountain of Youth in his humorous outlook on life!


A single native of New York City, Joseph Menkes is a member of the Jewish War Veterans and is enjoying his retirement years by “writing and thinking of everything under the sun and the moon.”
