* From the moment I picked your book up until I put it down I was
convulsed with laughter. Some day I intend reading it. Groucho Marx
* The first book of the Bible is Guinness's. In the book of Guinness,
Adam and Eve were created from an apple.
* Why didn't the thief burgle the library?
Because he was afraid the judge would give him a long sentence.
* How come the librarian slipped and fell in the library?
Because she strayed into the non-friction section
* What did one book say to the other one?
I just wanted to see if we are on the same page.
* What do you do if pet starts eating your library book?
Take the words right out of their mouth.
* I can't understand why a person will take a year to write a novel when
he can easily buy one for a few dollars. Fred Allen

United States Marine Corps Hymn
Words: L. Z.
Phillips (?) (1919)
Music: Jacques Offenbach from Genevieve de Brabant (1868)
From the Halls of Montezuma
To the Shores of Tripoli;
We fight our country's battles
In the air, on land and sea;
First to fight for right and freedom
And to keep our honor clean;
We are proud to claim the title
of United States Marine.
Our flag's unfurled to every breeze
From dawn to setting sun;
We have fought in ev'ry clime and place
Where we could take a gun;
In the snow of far-off Northern lands
And in sunny tropic scenes;
You will find us always on the job--
The United States Marines.
Here's health to you and to our Corps
Which we are proud to serve
In many a strife we've fought for life
And never lost our nerve;
If the Army and the Navy
Ever look on Heaven's scenes;
They will find the streets are guarded
By United States Marines.
