Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: This book is a compilation of some of the world's favourite jokes and puzzles told over decades and centuries. There are French jokes, English tales and contributions from America. The puzzles and card tricks are amusing and entertaining. The reader will be amazed as to how easy the puzzles and the card tricks are. They are as simple to solve as the egg of Christopher Columbus. The great man demonstrated how to stand a raw egg on its small end by cracking the shell at the small end then standing the egg on the cracked part of the shell. He explained: "It's easy, but you need to think of it first." The author's birthplace, Mauritius, has a multilingual society. Most Mauritians speak English, French and patois (a broken French), as well as Hindi, Chinese and other languages. Some of the funniest jokes are based on the differences between English and French words, as an Englishman and a Frenchman found to their chagrin. The Englishman arranged to meet his date in a pub and, as he was early, ordered a beer while he waited. A Frenchman tried to strike up a conversation with our English friend but without much success as their knowledge of each other's language was very poor. The Frenchie paid a visit to the loo and when he came back and sat down at his table he suddenly became agitated. Pointing to the Englishman's glass, he said, "Your glass Your glass For me " The Englishman was not going to sit idly by while this demented Monsieur Frenchman accused him of stealing his drink, so he picked up his glass and poured its contents on the foreigner's head. The Frenchman went away gesticulating and uttering strange-sounding words. Just at that moment the Englishman's date turned up. He told her what had happened. As she spoke fluent French she was able to explain to him that the French fellow had tried to do him a good turn by warning him that there was an ant ("fourmi") in his glass. The next day the Englishman spotted the Frenchman and wanted to apologise. The Englishman called out, "Come here " The Frenchman answered, "Comme hier?" (" Like yesterday?"). No chance " and scarpered. Mauritian humour is mixed, and it is this mix that the author hopes to have achieved in Favourite Jokes and Puzzles for the Family. Codice inventario libreria

He explained: ?It?s easy, but you need to think of it first.? The author?s birthplace, Mauritius, has a multilingual society. Most Mauritians speak English, French and patois (a broken French), as well as Hindi, Chinese and other languages. Some of the funniest jokes are based on the differences between English and French words, as an Englishman and a Frenchman found to their chagrin. The Englishman arranged to meet his date in a pub and, as he was early, ordered a beer while he waited. A Frenchman tried to strike up a conversation with our English friend but without much success as their knowledge of each other's language was very poor. The Frenchie paid a visit to the loo and when he came back and sat down at his table he suddenly became agitated. Pointing to the Englishman's glass, he said, "Your glass! Your glass! For me!"

The next day the Englishman spotted the Frenchman and wanted to apologise. The Englishman called out, "Come here!" The Frenchman answered, "Comme hier?" (" Like yesterday?"). No chance!" and scarpered. Mauritian humour is mixed, and it is this mix that the author hopes to have achieved in Favourite Jokes and Puzzles for the Family.

L'autore: The author was born in 1940 on the tropical island of Mauritius, formerly a French colony called L'Ile de France (The Isle of France). He was one of eleven siblings. When a British force invaded The Isle of France in 1810 during the Napoleonic wars the French Governor, General Charles de Caen, uttered the time-honoured French cry: "We surrender!" However, when the General stepped forward to take a closer look at the invaders a British soldier shot him in the leg, thus giving rise to the saying that the Isle de France was captured with one shot fired. The British re-named the country "Mauritius" and it remained a British colony until it was granted independence in 1968. To show their gratitude to the French who had given in so easily in 1810 and thus probably saved many lives, the British victors were magnanimous and allowed Mauritius to retain some of the French institutions that were already in place. The French language continued to be taught in school alongside English. The official language of government was to be English, court business was to be conducted in English and property deeds were to be drafted in French. Schoolchildren were taught to respect and admire the role that England played in the world. On Empire Day (later called Commonwealth Day) children waved little Union flags and sang Rule Britannia. They learned about Lord Wilberforce's campaign to abolish slavery worldwide. The English were famous for being fair-minded and for spreading religion and a democratic way of life throughout the British Empire on which the sun never set. So it was the author's wish to live in England and in 1961 he set sail for England. His wife, Paulette, a nurse, was also born in Mauritius. He met her in 1970 in their current home town of Colchester in England. They married in 1971 and went on to have five children. Maleck is a retired civil servant.
