Money Humor

When a man is short of money he finds most of his friends whom he meets short-sighted.
**********
PETERSON the comedian lent a brother actor two shillings, and when he made a demand for the sum, the debtor, turning peevishly from him, said, "Hang it! I'll pay you to-day in some shape or other." Peterson good-humoredly replied, "I shall be much obliged to you, Tom, to let it be as like two shillings as you can."
**********
IT was said of one that remembered everything that he lent, but nothing that he borrowed, "that he had lost half of his memory."
**********
"Why so glum, Blumly? Anything gone wrong?"
"Yes, I've just lost two of my best friends."
"By death or marriage?"
"Neither. I loaned them money."
