Description

“ . . . extremely valuable . . . enthusiastically recommend[ed] . . . ” —Western Folklore

These hilarious and slightly off-color stories, although gathered in Indiana, reflect the ancient origin and universality of the joke. The chuckle, the grin, the uncontrolled belly-laugh evoked by Jokelore attest to the popularity of this ancient form of folk literature.
