In a certain small town no one shed any tears at the death of the town’s wealthiest resident, a nasty old miser. A few weeks after the funeral the miser’s wife, who had long suffered his abuse and infidelities and was now a wealthy woman, showed up at the mayor’s office and offered to pay for some needed improvements to a park. Her only condition was that she be allowed to erect a fountain with a statue of her late husband.
The mayor gratefully accepted the offer, but then quietly asked her why, after years of suffering well known to the town, would want to honor her deceased husband that way.
“It’s simple” the woman replied. “The man hated pigeons”.
At least once Fibber’s closet came in handy: a burglar tied Fibber up and went looking for valuables. Fibber deviously told the burglar that there were valuables in the closet.

A friend of mine is completely blind. He tells a story about being on a first date with someone (please no cracks about “blind dates”) at a restaurant. She asked him to “keep an eye on her handbag” while she used the ladies’ room. He popped out a glass eye and placed it on her bag. She ran from the restaurant screaming. Some other restaurant patrons gave him a ride home. He never saw his date again.
“Your Show of Shows” starred Sid Ceaser and Imogene Coca. Ed Sullivan was never part of it. You may be thinking of “Toast of the Town”, hosted by Ed Sullivan and later re-named “The Ed Sullivan Show”.
