Excerpt from Beyond the BorderAnd they soon got hold of it, for the blacksmith was so pleased with his wit he did not care to keep it to himself, but wanted to take the credit. And his neighbours came out laughing as if their sides would split, till the Streets re-echoed with shouts of amuse ment. Oh, that joke was certainly very good indeed! And the butcher told it to the baker, and the baker to the grocer, and the grocer to somebody else, and somebody else to the other person, and they all told their customers - I mean, of course, those who had customers - and everybody laughed again at each repetition of the joke till they felt so dry in the mouth that they had to go to the inn to refresh, where they drank cups of liquor, and told the inn keeper all about it between the draughts. And the innkeeper laughed, and his wife laughed, and the lass laughed, and they had to hold on to each other, so faint were they with laughter.
