What do you get if you clone the vice president half a dozen times?

Sixpence

Joke from a 1920s Australian Newspaper

**Diplomacy**

Uncle to nephew playing a game of War with a companion: "If you take the fortress within a quarter of an hour, I'll give you a sixpence."

Youngster (a minute later): "Uncle, sixpence please, the fortress is taken."

Uncle: "How did you manage it so quickly?"

...

A wealthy gentleman began to chat with a poor woman on the streets of 17th century London

He asked how many children she had.

“Six,” she answered.

“Here is a sixpence for them,” he responded, handing her a coin.

“No, sir,” she said proudly, “I will not sell my children.”
