Wart Face

The school dance was underway, but little Amy, afflicted with warts all over her face, was left sitting alone along the wall, with no dance partner. Across the room was young Alex, whose wooden eye had netted him several refusals from the young ladies he had asked to dance. Looking over at Amy, who appeared as forlorn as himself, Alex summoned the courage to try once again to find a girl to dance with him.

Timid and self-conscious because of his wooden eye, he approached Amy. "Would you like to dance?" he asked.

Amy, with her facial warts, was thrilled to be asked. "Would I! Would I!" she cried.

Stunned, Alex blurted out, "Wart Face! Wart Face!"


  1. Some jokes are timeless: I laughed at this joke twenty years ago but I laughed even harder today. Thanks.

  2. Stephen - It's kind of you to laugh, even though you've heard it before. I would guess that it was about 50 years ago that I heard it. I figured that was so long ago that no one still alive would remember it but me. :)

  3. LOL ... I love your jokes! :o)

  4. LOL! I've never heard this before, but I'll be telling it again. :)

  5. Deborah - It's sweet of you to say so, whether you mean it or not. :)

    Elizabeth - I'm glad you enjoyed it and hope you'll find even more enjoyment in the retelling. :)

  6. LOL Oh Linda, how nice to get this chance to stop by and say hello to you and to get a laugh. I've thought of you and just had to stop by here. I thought I would be back to writing and reading blogs by now but it's not the time yet I guess.

    I hope all is well with you and yours. Much love and hugs sent your way my friend! XX Lori

  7. Oh, Lori, what a wonderful surprise to find your sweet comment. I'm so glad my little joke gave you a chuckle. Laughter is good medicine.

    I knew you had hoped to return to blogging after the first of the year, and I just figured things weren't going as well for you as we had hoped. Maybe soon... :)

  8. Oh My Goodness... That is BAD, Linda... Would I? Would I? Cute!!!!! I had not heard that one before.


  9. Betsy - It IS bad, I know; but I've always thought it funny. Thanks for laughing with me.
