Re: Why is this joke funny?

Obviously, a straight answer to the original question would be "I inherited it."  I think the humor lies in the absurdity.

I never understood why "The Catcher in the Rye" ever became a "classic".  There are tons of better literature by expatriates.

Re: Why is this joke funny?

Re: Why is this joke funny?

^ I buy PackRat's explanation.  Maybe the previous year's pinup cards were considered better for some reason?  Perhaps a new censorship policy had gone into effect that year?
