Synopsis

Queen Victoria supposedly said "We are not amused". Read "Old Groaners", and you will find some of the conundrums, or riddles, that amused the Victorians. Why do some persons believe the moon to be made of green cheese? Because of the milky whey that surrounds it. Which is the way to make your trousers last? To make your coat and waistcoat first. Why is a guinea in the distance not worth a penny? Because it's only a far-thing Why do little birds in a nest agree? Because if they did not, they would fall out. Why is a dead doctor like a dead duck? Because he has stopped quacking. What is worse than "raining cats and dogs"? Hailing omnibuses.
