Tom Brown's complete jester [electronic resource] : Or, the wit's merry companion. Being a most curious collection of excellent jests, keen repartees, pleasant stories, funny jokes, bon mots, smart waggeries, humourous quibbles, comical adventures, Irish bulls, and entertaining humbugs. To which are added, a choice collection of conundrums, entire new and beautiful rebusses, and riddles; biting epigrams, droll epitaphs, merry songs, amorous pastorals, comic tales, fables, &c. &c. &c. freed from those insipid thread-bare jests, which are in many other compositions of this kind; most of these being entirely new, and never yet appeared in any Jester.
