A DANISH JOKE ABOUT MIND AND BODY. The ancient Roman joke about the bald man caught my attention because it reminded me of a Danish joke my mother used to tell.
My Danish grandfather apparently came from a part of Denmark that jokes were made about. I heard my mother refer to the area as “Maw bu” (my spelling of what I heard), The joke she used as an example was about the three men from “Maw bu” who were out in a boat and had to pinch each other’s legs to find out whose legs were whose.
I think this is the same joke as the Roman joke from 1500 hundred years earlier that I quoted yesterday.
