Overview

The Funny Bone - Short Stories and Amusing Anecdotes for a Dull Hour - By Henry Martyn Kieffer.

It was his first banquet, and they were making speeches. Everybody was being called on for a speech, and he was in mortal terror, for he had never made a speech in his life. An old-timer at his side cruelly suggested that he "get under the table-or say a prayer." His name was called and he got up with fear and trembling, and said:
"My friends, I never made a speech in all my life, and I'm just scared nearly to death. A friend here beside me has suggested two things for me to do-to get under the table, or to pray. Well, I couldn't get under the table without observation, and now that I am on my feet, I can't think of any other prayer to say except one that I used to hear my sister Mary say in the morning when mother called us-'O Lord, how I do hate to get up!'"
