  • THE NEW PUN BOOK
    • COLLECTED, EDITED AND ARRANGED FROM THE NOTES OF TWO LEARNED PUNDITS
      • Who thought they never saw the Punjab delighted in all pungencies of speech. Scholarly men who rejoice in punctiliousness in their language, contrive to improve its flavor and precision by exercise in these unexpected juxtapositions. Thus, as with our Pundit's famous countryman Mr. Jaberjee, though they use the purest language, they can instantly express every shade of thought with grace and completeness without resorting to slang:—that ready cloak wherewith puny minds strive to cover their vulgarity and lack of culture.
