Thread Name: Folklore: Favorite Storytellers?
Subject: RE: Folklore: Favorite Storytellers?
Sure, Joannne, good jokes are the core of many stories. When you have established characters like Ole and Lena, Jack, Paul Bunyan, Pecos Bill, etc., half the story's already told, so you can be really quick to the punch line. That's where the folklore part kicks in.
