“Saddle your dreams before you ride ’em.”

—MARY WEBB, English novelist and poet
A psychiatrist was taking the train home from work when he saw an elderly passenger talking to himself and then laughing out loud. Occasionally, the man would put his hand up, stop talking, and then start all over again. Curious, the psychiatrist said to the man, “Excuse me, sir. I hope you don’t mind my asking, but is there anything I can do to help you?”
“No, no,” the man replied. “I’m just telling myself jokes because it keeps me awake while I’m traveling.”
“But why do you keep raising your hand?” the psychiatrist asked.
“Oh, that’s to stop me from telling myself a joke I’ve heard before.”
What was the top handicap attained by England’s Prince Charles on the polo field, where the highest rating is a 10-goal handicap?
