"Country Life" humor from Punch, part IV

Over a period of many years I clipped out selections from the "Country Life" section of Punch magazine and stored them in a "humor" scrapbook. When I hosted parties at my apartment I would invite guests to sit down and try to read two pages while controlling their emotions and not smiling or laughing. I don't recall anyone successfully doing so. Now I'll try posting the pages here in the blog, a couple at a time.  This is the next-to-last installment.

The text on these pages can be very difficult to read. One possible workaround is to right-click on a page to open it in a new tab, then zoom the image on that tab.


  1. 10 year old boy kicked and beaten for spilling cereal? How the hell did that get in there?

    1. Probably because of the typo "... kicked and beaten by his WIFE's live-in boyfriend..."
