Humour Hunt


Gordon Thompson of Tide Head, N.B., five miles west of Campbellton and once called Head of Tide, sends us this:

A sergeant and a private were court-martialled for kicking a colonel as he was getting into his car.  The sergeant explained that the colonel had stepped on his most sensitive corn and he had lost control of his reflexes, kicking the colonel unintentionally.  That made sense to the court.

The private then gave his explanation: “I saw the sergeant kicking the colonel and I thought the war was over.”
