TWO FISH IN A TANK. ONE SAYS TO THE OTHER "HOW DO YOU DRIVE THIS THING?"

WHAT DO YOU CALL A MAN WHO HAS LOST HIS CAR?
CARLOS

READ THIS POEM ON A SMALL ISLAND CALLED PELE:

No Internet, No television
Just the sound of children playing
Fresh air and gentle people
The pandanas mildly swaying.
Coconut palms, a pace of life
From somewhere back in time
Nature creates the poetry
Pele helps with the rhyme.

WHY DID THE MAN PUSH HIS WIFE OFF A CLIFF?
TA-KILL-HA
