    That’s one of the oldest punchlines in the book, if not the oldest.

    I’ve never heard that crossword joke before.

    But do tell the Rock Hudson one!

    Let’s just say it’s not about kissing the Pope’s ring to show respect.

    If you really want to know the Rock Hudson joke, a Google search will show it.

    Or, what about being buried with one’s exposed buns showing, to be used as a bicycle rack?

    Those of use of a certain age are crossword puzzlers because we, correctly, believe it helps to keep our wits sharp. I begin my day with my daily paper with news, comics then Sedoku , then the Cryptoquips, the Jumble, and finally the Crosswords.When I was young, at living at home, Dad was a Crossword fanatic and it became a race for the paper when I began to do them, also. He was kind enough to do them in pencil, I, on the other hand, cockily did them in ink ! I still, to this day, do all my puzzles in ink.For those of us who are retired or semi-retired, this really is a great method of staying sharp. I highly recommend it as being as much fun as commenting on these strips !
