    A moel decides to retire after many years in business. He has this huge jar
    of clippings that he's collected over the years. He doesn't know what to do
    with them so he goes to a taxidermist.

    "I want you to take these clippings and make me something special so I can
    have a remembrance of all my years of hard work."

    He returns to the shop in a couple of weeks. The taxidermist hands him a
    small wallet.

    "What? This is what I get for 30 years in business, a wallet?" he asks.

    "It's a special wallet", says the taxidermist, "You see, when you stroke it,
    it becomes a suitcase."

    I had no idea what you were talking about, so I looked it up. Now that I understand , it's pretty funny.

    And the father announced to the waiting guests, "The moel has finally arrived. It won't be long now."

    I'll be laughing quietly from time to time for days...did you come up with that one in a blitz of genial creativity, or hear it somewhere and pounce on the perfect setup? In other words, after you had the idea or heard it, was it long before you had the chance to use it? Subtle and hilarious all at once...touche!

    :cheers:
