While the battery-pun joke is still current, here is another of my favourites. The American pamphleteer Thomas Paine is walking through Dublin, and he steps into a large puddle. He goes into the Irish Times office, grabs some newspapers from the desk, throws them onto the floor and starts wiping his feet on them. The man behind the desk asks what he is doing, and he replies: >>>

‘These are the Times that dry men’s soles.’
