I have been following this "Story" that is not a story but a series of jokes. Jack Spratt is just a fulcrum of jokes. Some are truly very good, some are so bad they are quite funny. The series is excellent and very habit forming. It is an excellent way to start the day or to finish it. There is no plot or ending but just enjoyment. I recommend this collection of jokes good and bad.
I'm and old man, not quite as old as Jack Spratt, or even Old Man With a Pen, still, I have reached Viagra age and frankly, that is old enough. The jokes range from godawful to fucking hysterical. I like all of them. The folks I email a few to complain how bad they are until I remind them that they sent me the same damned joke 20 years ago when they first got on-line.
OK, not all the jokes are old, some are middle aged (middle age being fifteen years older than me). This detracts from the jokes not at all.
There is however a trick to enjoying what Mr. Spratt (who eats no fat) offers to us: do not sit down and read joke after joke. This is not a story, it is a compilation of jokes; it is not meant to be read all at once, essentially no binge joking. Think of it as a bathroom book: print out the jokes and leave the printout next to the throne. Really, laughing may replace squeezing and has the added advantage of not causing hemorrhoids.
