That's Mark Twain--got that little figure from the flea market-- surrounded by the chortling little faces of Johnny-Jump-Ups. Always good to have some yuk-yuks on the front porch steps.
Here are a couple of classic quips from the Twain-meister:
"I am opposed to millionaires, but it would be dangerous to offer me the position."
"A banker is a fellow who lends you his umbrella when the sun is shining, but wants it back the minute it begins to rain."
And seeing these beauties reminded me of a joke [actually I think it appears in The Garden Angel somewhere]. It's a little "off color":
What's better than roses on a piano?
Tulips on an organ.
