Stockholm

Tommy Cooper



While we were in England, someone said that T. in his fez reminded him of Tommy Cooper. He told us a sample joke: A man goes to the doctor and says, "I broke my leg in three places." The doctor says, "Don't go to those places!"

I intended to look Tommy Cooper up right away, but forgot until last night when another British person remarked on the same thing. This time I remembered. What a hoot! The jokes he tells are exactly the kind that make me crack up. "Just like that."
